(St. Lucia News Online) — One of two inmates who escaped from the Bordelais Correctional Facility (BCF) on Saturday, has been recaptured.

Dave Joseph was nabbed on Sunday but details surrounding is capture were not immediately clear.

The other inmate, Markin Marquis,  who was on remand for murder, is still at large and is considered “armed and dangerous” — according to law enforcement sources.

Four other prisoners who escaped that same day were caught shortly after, near the BCF. This incident resulted in a total lockdown of the facility.

Inmates retaliated with a short-lived riot on Sunday morning — setting two mattresses on fire in the hallway of the facility.

The inmates posted videos on social media in which they say it’s unfair for everyone to be punished for the escapees. They also expressed concern over the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) inside the facility.

Meanwhile, Joseph, also known as ‘Pirate’ and ‘Bird Eye’, of Bagatelle, Castries, is on remand for the charge of murder in the shooting death of 18-year-old Brandon Breedy at Hospital Road, Castries on September 7, 2015.

Reports reaching St. Lucia News Online at the time are that the teenager, who was recovering from an illness, was on his cell phone when his attacker entered his home and opened fire.

Breedy sustained three gunshot wounds to his chest and head.

His lifeless body was found lying in a pool of blood on his bed. At the time, relatives had told St. Lucia News Online that Breedy was killed by his friend, allegedly as a result of a dispute over a female.

According to relatives, several eyewitnesses have reported seeing one or more suspects entering and fleeing the house around the time of the shooting.

Joseph was arrested on September 12 for questioning and charged several days later.
