4 inmates sought after Christmas jailbreak

28 December 2016

According to the sheriff, "The inmates escaped after a water leak occurred behind a wall unit stainless steel toilet".

The other five men who attempted to flee have been recaptured - two on Christmas day and three others on Monday, WBIR reported.

Four prisoners are at-large after allegedly using a leaky toilet to make an escape from a jail by removing the toilet from the wall, officials said.

David Wayne Frazier, 54, is considered unsafe, officers said.

John Shehee turned himself in about 8:05 county authorities, according to Cocke County Sheriff Armando Fonest.

Police are still investigating and have not released a description or other information about the shooter. The attack took place on E. 91st St. and Linden Blvd in East Flatbush around 4:20 pm on Christmas Day.

"We've had numerous issues with this facility concerning water breaks, sewage breaks". Two other people, Daniel Speir and Jarred Schoondermark, were arrested at Speir's home and charged with harboring a fugitive.

Inmate Steven Lewis was also captured after a foot chase by officers in the Carson Springs Community. He was behind bars for aggravated robbery and having a weapon as a convicted felon.

Previous repairs to the plumbing caused the concrete encasing the wall unit toilet to become weakened. "It's a never ending task to try to keep this place and this facility operational".

Fontes said the building is brittle and unfit for housing inmates. Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of David Wayne Frazier is encouraged to call the sheriff's office at 423-623-2064 or the jail at 423-623-6023.

Shehee was facing criminal charges for arson, criminal trespassing and property theft under $500. Harce Allen and Eric Click were caught on Monday.
