Blackburn Escapee Hospitalized After Suffering Frostbite

Police say an inmate who walked away from the Blackburn Correctional Complex in Lexington Sunday night has been found and hospitalized after suffering frostbite overnight.

Officials say Robert Vick, 42, turned himself in to Lexington Police Monday afternoon after he suffered some minor frostbite.

Vick had escaped around 9 p.m. Sunday and told police he was hiding in an abandoned farmhouse and had stolen some clothes, but suffered some frostbite and had to call for help from the Sunset Motel on Georgetown Road around 4:30 p.m. on Monday.

Police say Vick is from Hartford, Ky. He was serving a 6-year sentence for burglary and a 5-year sentence for criminal possession of a forged instrument, both out of Boyd County.
