Escape From Death Row

Escape From Death Row

They said it was escape proof! They were wrong! Linwood and J.B. Briley were the ringleaders in the six inmate escape from Virginia’s death row at Mecklenburg Correctional Center on May 31, 1984. During the early moments of the escape, in which a co-ordinated effort resulted in inmates taking over the death row unit, both Brileys expressed strong interest in killing the captured guards by dousing them with rubbing alcohol and tossing a lit match. Willie Lloyd Turner, another death row inmate, stepped in the way of James Briley and forbade him to do so.[citation needed] Meanwhile, cop killer Wilbert Lee Evans prevented Linwood Briley from raping a female nurse who had been taken hostage while en route to delivering medication to inmates in the unit
