BCF inmate recaptured

Bordelais Correctional Facility (BCF) inmate, Kevin Brian Richardson, who attempted to commit suicide and later escaped from St Jude hospital has been recaptured, prison officials have said.

According to a BCF release, on Thursday July 6 Richardson attempted to commit suicide by jumping from the upper tier of the residential unit to the ground floor.

The BCF inmate who is a former resident of Beausejour, Gros Islet, is reported to have sustained a broken arm and head injuries.

He was treated at the BCF’s  Medical Unit and conveyed to the Dennery hospital for medical attention,  the BCF  said in a statement.

The injured  BCF inmate was subsequently referred to St. Jude Hospital for further medical attention but escaped at around 2.am Saturday although under guard, according to reports.

BCF said it  effected the search protocol and a team of Correctional Officers was immediately dispatched.

Richardson was recaptured by BCF Officers along the St Jude highway within one hour of his escape and was transported back to St. Jude Hospital under armed guard, it is reported.

Officials said he was attempting to stop passing vehicles in an obvious attempt to hitch a ride.

Richardson had been admitted to  the BCF  on March 7, 2017 by virtue of a remand warrant for the offence of  fraud committed on February 25, 2017.

According to the BCF, Richardson is an inmate under psychiatric care.

Officials said his attempted suicide and escaping lawful custody are under investigation.

Richardson’s suicide attempt is the second by a BCF inmate in about one week.

On June 30, another inmate – Junior Duncan, was rushed to the Dennery Hospital after reportedly swallowing a quantity of pills.

He was said to be ‘doing fine’ one day afterwards.

BCF officials told the Times that Duncan was given the pills as part of treatment for a gunshot wound he sustained when he and another prisoner attacked an inmate, then turned on a prison response team.

    Not sure what’s going on….an inmate should not have a quantity of PILLS in his possession. He should be given his meds daily as required under direct medical supervision to ensure that they are consumed.

    In addition an inmate who is hospitalized should be secured/handcuffed/footcuffed to a bed. What protocols are in place for handling inmates?

    The officer fell asleep when he was supposed to be guarding the prisoner, causing the prisoner to be escape. How could he have fallen asleep with an inmate under his watch is what should be investigated.

    This seems to be a case involving a mentally ill patient. He should simply be treated and kept under careful watch. No further charge should be brought against him.
