Franklin Co. Escapee Recaptured

Posted: Updated:

FRANKLIN COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)-- The man who deputies say escaped the Franklin County Regional Jail last week by posing as another inmate has been recaptured.

Gregory Bowling, 44, of Manchester, was “inadvertently released” on Thursday at about 3 p.m. He was discovered missing when he failed to show for the jail’s daily 5 p.m. head count that same day, a deputy at the jail tells LEX 18.

The jail, which went on lockdown after the escape, is now reviewing release procedures to find out how the mistake could have occurred.

Bowling was spotted by a Frankfort Police officer and was captured after a short foot pursuit.

Bowling was wanted on a charge of second-degree escape, a Class D felony. He was being held on Clay County charges of failure to appear on first-degree possession of a controlled substance, also a Class D felony.
