A Red Eagle Work Center inmate serving a sentence for a murder in 1998 escaped Saturday and is yet to be found.
According to an article by the Associated Press in 1998, David Kyle was convicted of shooting a man, stuffing his body into a car and setting it on fire. Kyle was dealing drugs at the time and was already set to serve an eight-year sentence for arson.
The Alabama Department of Corrections (ADOC) said Kyle left his work area around 5:15 p.m. Kyle, 49, is approximately 190 pounds and 5 feet and 11 inches tall.
The ADOC labeled Kyle a “minimum-out” inmate, meaning one that does “not pose a significant risk to self or others and suitable to be assigned off-property work details without the direct supervision of correctional officers.”
Red Eagle Work Center is a 364-acre property located around three miles north of Montgomery. Red Eagle workers are typically assigned jobs for government agencies in the area.
If you have any information relating to Kyle’s whereabouts, please contact the ADOC at 800-831-8825.
