Manhunt over as third inmate who escaped Wisconsin facility is caught in Minneapolis


The last of three fugitives from a corrections facility in Wisconsin has been caught by police in Minneapolis.

Minneapolis police have confirmed that 26-year-old Jesse Jamal Fairley (pictured left at above) was apprehended by officers and the Department of Corrections at an address on the 1600 block of Plymouth Avenue North at 11 a.m. Saturday.

Police spokesman John Elder said Fairley, who was serving time for burglary, was taken into custody without incident.

Fairley was one of three men who escaped from the St. Croix Correctional Facility in New Richmond, western Wisconsin, on Wednesday, prompting an alert that closed schools in the city on Thursday.

The other two men, Andre Vance and Kyle Peterson, were recaptured in Madison and Whitewater, Wisconsin, respectively on Friday.

Earlier information from authorities said that Fairley had known ties to St. Paul.

All three inmates were scheduled for full release in August, but will now face longer sentences.
