2 escape from Blackburn Correctional Complex


LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Two inmates who escaped from the Blackburn Correctional Complex are being sought by police.

Lexington Police Lt. Dean Marcum says 48-year-old Willard Wilson and 38-year-old Donnie Johnson were reported missing shortly before 9 p.m. EST Sunday.

Wilson, who is 6'2" and weighs 175 pounds, is serving 22 years on a burglary charge.

Johnson, who is 5'11" and weighs 160 pounds, is serving 13 years for robbery.

Marcum told the Lexington Herald-Leader each man was last seen wearing prison-issued khaki shirt and pants.

Marcum says it's possible that the khakis were covered by gray sweat pants.
