New details released in ‘Pretty Boy Floyd’ escape

The Mississippi Department of Corrections has shared new details on how the convicted murderer known as Pretty Boy Floyd got away in his most recent escape.

According to our media partner the Sun Herald, Michael Floyd Wilson was brought to the medical ward of the Central Mississippi Correctional Facility on February 13th for an unknown illness.

While there, he managed to slip out of a door and remain undetected by prison employees and then had to climb two 12-foot-high razor wire fences that surrounded the prison.

MDOC officials say prior to his escape, Wilson had been downgraded from maximum to medium security, the ongoing investigation will determine if that was a mistake.

Between ten to 12 employees at the Central Correctional Facility are facing disciplinary action for the escape.

Wilson is now being held at the maximum security Walnut Grove Correctional Facility after being recaptured in Harrison County on February 15th, two days after he escaped.
