Convict recaptured after walking out of Md. prison

Here's an interesting report from the Associated Press:

Authorities say an inmate serving three life terms has been recaptured in West Virginia after he conned his way out of a Baltimore prison.

Baltimore police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says 26-year-old Raymond Taylor was taken into custody without incident at the home of a friend in Martinsburg. Corrections officials also confirm that Taylor has been captured and is in the custody of West Virginia state police.

Taylor was mistakenly released Thursday afternoon from the Maryland Correctional Adjustment Center. Authorities say he posed as a cellmate who was scheduled to be released. They say he provided the other inmate's ID number to three different prison workers.

Taylor is from New York and was convicted in 2005 of three counts of attempted murder.

Raymond Taylor is a genius. How could the Baltimore Prison possibly have kept him in jail when he is such a shrewd brainiac? He must have been separated at birth from Professor Moriarty.
