A wanted felon is being sought by Police in Holly Springs, Mississippi after escaping jail. Police say, Antoine Adams, 27 was charged with three murders and was in custody at the Marshal County Jail since August. The dangerous killer committed one murder in Marshall County and the others in Memphis.
Sheriff Kenny Dickerson of Marshall County said, "He is a very, very dangerous individual." Dickerson warned the public about Adams before going on to criticize the builders of the jail itself. "I know this sounds terrible having a jail with a window, but that’s how ill constructed the jail was built back 25 years ago. It’s in the process of already being done, we just hadn’t gotten to that particular area where he got out."
A local news reporter Tweeted a video showing where Adams escaped from and there are literally dozens and dozens of homes across the street.

A local citizen, John Sumler lives right across the street and he says, "Somebody wasn’t watching or something. Had that jailer or jailers been watching and doing what they’re paid for, they would have caught it."
Another woman that lives across the street says an inmate broke out a couple years ago, "They came straight over there, all along and around my house." She found out about the most recent escape from a loved one, "Called me this morning and said, 'Make sure you lock your doors.' I said, 'What’s going on?' They said, 'Somebody broke out of jail. They said, 'He’s got three murder charges."
