Video shows a fence that 4 inmates including a murder suspect cut through to escape


A video shows the fence that four Georgia inmates, including a murder suspect, cut through to escape last week. It appears that there was no security officer guarding that side of the yard.

Officials in Bibb County reported that the inmates escaped from the Bibb County Detention Center in Macon, Georgia, at approximately 3:30 a.m. on Monday.

All suspects have been identified as 52-year-old Joey Fournier, 24-year-old Marc Kerry Anderson, 37-year-old Johnifer Dernard Barnwell, and 29-year-old Chavis Demaryo Stokes.

4 inmates

Police said the suspects escaped from a damaged window in a second-floor dayroom and cut through a fence.

Bibb County Sheriff David Davis said his office is following up on leads.

We are following up on some leads as to where these individuals may be, Davis said at a news conference on Monday. This is an all-hands-on-deck situation.

Jail staff found the break in the perimeter fence around 6 a.m., according to Davis. Upon reviewing video footage, it was discovered that the suspects escaped from a window in a second-floor dayroom.

Police said waiting for the suspects was a blue Dodge Challenger that was outside of the detention center earlier that night. Davis said video footage showed an individual tampering with the fence. The person then brought “some items into the enclosed area of the fence,” the Davis said, adding that authorities believe the items were used to help the inmates escape.

Davis said he is unsure if the four escapees, who were seen in the vehicle on video footage, had either gotten into another car or left on foot. However, he did say that the blue Dodge Challenger is involved in the escape, and the police are currently searching for that vehicle.
