Killer Escapes from Prison in Trash

The Los Angeles Times reported that a man convicted of murder escaped from a medium-security prison in Pennsylvania Sunday after hiding in a trash can.

Malcolm Kysor, 53, was reported missing after gaurds doing a routine inmate count noticed that he was not in his cell at the State Correctional Institution-Albion.

Apparently Kysor hid himself in a garbage can that was taken out to a loading dock and hauled away by a truck. He was helped by another inmate, according to a criminal report.

In 1987 Kysor was found guilty of first-degree murder. He beat Barney Fenton, 40, to death.

The prison is located just southwest of Erie, and houses close to 2,300 inmates, Sue McNaughton, a state Department of Corrections spokeswoman, told ABC News.

The FBI are currently searching for Kysor. They are offering a reward to anyone that can disclose his location.
