Vybz Kartel escapes from jail

In what is called the biggest prison escape in the history of Jamaica, Vybz Kartel (Adidja Palmer) and 7 other prisoners escaped the Horizon Adult Remand Centre on November 30th. The reggae artist was charged with multiple murders and marijuana possession. At around 1:00 am, Vybz Kartel took over the prison by taking officers hostage using smuggled guns. Other prisoners began to take the offcers’ clothing and car keys. By 1:45 am the group left the prison in a maintenance truck. 1 officer died from a heart attack and 12 others were injured in the escape. The police gave chase to the crew, but only captured one of the escapees. Vybz and his cohorts are currently listed as “Jamaica’s Most Wanted”. Note: this story has not yet been confirmed by Jamaican authorities
