13-year-old double murder suspect escapes custody in North Carolina

The suspect was identified only as Jericho W.North Carolina Department of Public Safety

A 13-year-old boy, who allegedly murdered two men in North Carolina, escaped custody on Tuesday while wearing leg restraints and no shoes, authorities said.

The teenager, identified only as Jericho W., was hit with two counts of first-degree murder Oct. 17 in the deaths of brothers Frank Thomas, 34, and Adam Thomas, 33, local NBC affiliate WRAL reported at the time.

He’d been held at the Cumberland Juvenile Detention Center since his arrest — but was taken to court for an appearance Tuesday morning.

The teen made a run for it around 12:10 p.m. after appearing in Robeson County Court, the North Carolina Department of Public Safety said.

He was last seen barefoot and in leg cuffs, wearing a white T-shirt and beige pants. He’s described as being about 5 feet tall and approximately 110 pounds.

Authorities said he has a history of “unpredictable behavior.”

Another teen, 19-year-old Derrick Deshawn Hunt, was also charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the brothers’ deaths.

Both face charges of robbery with a dangerous weapon as well.



Just another misunderstood youth who dindu nuffin.

Inmate Claims He Served His Life Sentence Because He Briefly Died

By Spooky on November 11th, 2019 Category: News

66-year-old Benjamin Schreiber is very much alive, but hasn’t stopped him from using his death as a way of explaining that he actually served his life sentence for murder.

When Shreiber collapsed in his prison cell in 2015, doctors had to resuscitate him five times, which technically means that he died for a brief period of time before being brought to life. Three years later, the convicted murderer filed for post-conviction relief, claiming that he was being held in prison illegally. He figured that because he had briefly died in 2015, he had technically served his life sentence and should be a free man. His sentence was supposed to end when he died, right? the fact that he had been resurrected didn’t matter.

Schreiber originally took his case to a district court where a judge denied his appeal, claiming that his creative attempt to find a loophole in the law was “unpersuasive and without merit”. He added that the mere fact that the inmate was able to file a motion for his release “in itself confirms the petitioner’s current status as living”.

However, the inmate didn’t lose hope and took his case to the Iowa Court of Appeals hoping that the judges here would be more understanding. Sadly for him, they weren’t. In a decision published last Wednesday, a panel of judges argued that “life in prison” meant just that, life.

“We do not believe the legislature intended this provision [ …] to set criminal defendants free whenever medical procedures during their incarceration lead to their resuscitation by medical professionals,” Judge Amanda Potterfield wrote. “Schreiber is either alive, in which case he must remain in prison, or he is dead, in which case this appeal is moot.”

The judges ultimately ruled that Benjamin Schreiber could not have it both ways – being dead as far as the criminal justice system was concerned, while simultaneously being alive otherwise. It’s unclear if the inmate plans to take his legal fight to a higher court.


I will give this prisoner points for the creativity of his argument but I agree with the judge in ruling against him.
