Escape report delayed

A report on how accused murderer Denecho King allegedly escaped from the North Slave Correctional Centre last month, expected to be released in mid-September, has been delayed.

The Department of Justice has yet to say when the report will be done. MLAs have said they want the report to be publicly released.

In a Sept. 23 e-mail, department spokesperson Sue Glowach said inmates are still being kept from where King managed to climb onto the roof Aug. 10 until a repair is made.

The restriction continues until temporary or final structural repairs have been made, she stated.
