Convicted Killer, Michael Floyd Wilson, on the Loose After Escaping Prison Twice


Convicted Killer Michael Floyd Wilson, has managed to escape prison and elude police for the second time. According to authorities, he was convicted of killing two people. This is his second attempt in nearly four years.

Floyd, 51, escaped from prison Sunday night from the Central Mississippi Correctional Facility in Pearl, Mississippi, roughly 11 miles southeast of Jackson, wrote the Mississippi Department of Corrections (MDOC) on Facebook.

Mississippi Department of Corrections spokesman Leo Honeycutt said Monday that after scaling a 12-foot fence, and two feet of razor, Wilson is believed to have obtained injuries to his hands and torso during his escape from prison.

Officials said, according to the Mississippi Clarion-Ledger, the gloves that Wilson was wearing were found stuck in the wire.

The paper reported that Wilson had received treatment for his injuries twice, at a hospital emergency room, despite the public being aware of the search for Wilson.

After beating two men to death in Biloxi and Gulfport in 2014, Wilson was sentenced to life in prison. According to the Clarion-Ledger, the convicted killer was also serving sentences for burglary and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Before his current run, Wilson had escaped from the South Mississippi Correctional Institution in Leakesville in July 2018. After more than two days on the loose, the convict was recaptured in Ocean Springs, about 70 miles away.

The MDOC has the help of the Rankin County Sherrif’s Office in the search for Wilson. A number of roadblocks have been set up, near the prison, by law enforcement agencies.

This was not the first time an inmate had escaped the prison. A few months ago, a prisoner fled the prison and was brought back to Mississippi after being captured in Ohio. Honeycutt expressed optimism about the return of Wilson, reported the paper.

“We were able to trace him up there and bring him back, so I feel pretty confident we’ll do this again,” Honeycutt said.

Anyone who has seen Wilson or knows of his whereabouts is advised to contact the police or the MDOC at 662-745-6611.
