"In-again-out-again" Boyd, 25-year-old Ranson man charged with negligent homicide and two counts of robbery, was ap- prehended by Martinsburg city police Saturday at about 2 p.m. and immediately returned to the Jefferson County jail. Boyd, whose escape antics are becoming legendary, fled from the jail on Saturday, May 20. It was the second time in 30 days he had escaped county custody. The escape marked the third time this year that the thin elusive black man has been unjustly freed. In February he was released on bond from county jail despite two out- standing charges against him. He later fled the scene of an automobile accident in which two young adults and their child were killed, only to turn himself in soon afterwards. The on April 21, while being escorted to the jail from the county courthouse, Boyd, who was not handcuffed, fled the custody of Deputy Robert Carr. The two were returning from a circuit court .hearing, where bond setting had been post- poned. An intensive County-wide manhunt found Boyd within 24 hours, cowering in the corner of a vacant trailer near Shenan- doah Downs. That escape led Sheriff Wilt to dismiss Deputy Carr, who recently was rein- stated to his position by the county Civil Service Com- missmn. The reinstatement apparently was granted largely because Wilt was unable to provide existence of department regulations concerning hand- cuffing of prisoners and general jail security measures. Though Wilt had since issued a written statement of jail regulations, turnkey Charles Williams was unable to prevent Boyd's escape. Preparing to enter the in- mates' visitation booth, armed only with a bag of groceries and a carton of cigarettes for a prisoner, Williams signaled for a trustee to activate the locked door that separates inmates from visitors and jail staff. According to Williams "Pappy" to jail inmates because of his white hair and overceeding generosity -- Boyd, who was l lurking behind the" thick metal door, rushed out the door, pin- ning the turnkey against the wall. 'Quick as a cat", Boyd started towards his female visitor, registered in the jail 10g book as Kathie Boyd, his common law wife, Williams said. But then, because Williams immediately ordered the trusty not to unlock the jail's front door, Boyd changed directions and fled through an adjoining kitchen, out an unlocked window to a narrow corridor below, and scaled an g-foot gate to safety. Williams immediately notified" Emergency Communications in Charles Town. Authorities were unable to apprehend Boyd, although Williams said that Charles Town police "arrived within 30 seconds". Wilt recently said he decided against disciplinary action against Williams, who has worked weekends for 10 weeks. "I have discussed the matter with Williams in a friendly manner", Wilt stated. "He is inexperienced in security type work and could not have prevented Boyd's escape". However, Wilt has posted new "Incarceration and Release Procedures" at the jail, which require a deputy to be on guard in the jail during visiting hours, which were reduced from eight to four hours a week. Boyd apparently left behind a note at the jail, which was given to turnkey Williams by a trustee following the escape. (See transcripe of the note in separate Spirit article.) In the note Boydstated his intention of going to Maryland, to find an individual who he said is responsible for the crimes with which he is charged. However, Martinsburg police Saturday received a tip that Bayd, riding m a 1969 white Chevrolet, in the company of two black men, would soon approach the corner of Martin and Queen, in Martinsburg. Shortly after the tip, Boyd was apprehended by police officers, with support from the Berkeley County Sheriff's Department. Jefferson County was notified and Deputy Robert Burt tran- sferred Boyd, handcuffed behind "his back, back to the jail, where Boyd is being held in a single- occupancy, maximum security cell. t- - "- - :==-=-== BLUE RIDGE ACRES Libby Cooper Dial 725-5925 _ _ _ _ - - _ -- (Deferred From Last Week) Faith and Russ Cone have returned from san Francisco where they went to visit relatives.
