3 Inmates Escape From Covington Co. Jail; Search Underway

COVINGTON COUNTY, MS –

The search is on for three inmates who escaped from the Covington County Jail late Wednesday night.

Sheriff Darrell Perkins said 21-year-old Dillon Parr, 32-year-old Alexander Knight and 30-year-old Christopher Love escaped together through a skylight inside the jail around 10:45 p.m.

Perkins said a jailer noticed one of the inmates as they were running away, and deputies started searching for the trio immediately.

All three inmates were still at large as of 3 a.m. Thursday.

Parr, of Mt. Olive, is charged with manslaughter in the November 2018 shooting death of his neighbor, Christopher Hand.
