Surveillance from a Versailles's Dairy Queen shows fugitive


Escapee Derek Capozzi's last known sighting was captured by video surveillance from a local Versailles's business.

Capozzi was caught on video on April 16th about 2:00 pm outside of Dairy Queen in Versailles, KY. CAPOZZI still had the prison issue tan pants and white t-shirt. Capozzi was wearing prison issue slip on dark colored shoes. Please dial 911 if you have sighted CAPPOZI. He is still considered dangerous.

Local and state police and U.S. Marshals
continue to comb the area around Versailles for a
dangerous fugitive who escaped from a prisoner transport van on
Thursday.
Police spokesman Pat Melton said authorities do not know if
37-year-old Derek A. Capozzi is still in the area, but they have to
continue searching until they learn he is somewhere else.
Even with Capozzi still on the loose, life was beginning to get
back to normal. Residents had been warned to lock their doors, and
local schools had been on lockdown.
Capozzi, who was convicted in Massachusetts in 2005 of being an
accessory to a grisly gang-related murder, had been in Kentucky to
testify in a federal trial. He was not scheduled for release until
2046.
