Entire MDOC prison system goes on lockdown following escapes
The entire MDOC prison system has been placed on lockdown after three inmates were reported as escaped on Friday.
From the MDOC:
Movement is now restricted statewide in the prison system as the Mississippi Department of Corrections continues to hunt for escaped inmates Benny Ray Blansett, Jonathan Blankenship, and Christopher Benson High.
The statewide lockdown means visitation and other privileges are suspended until further notice not only at the state prisons but also at the private prisons, regional facilities, and community work centers.
