The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) has issued an arrest warrant against an inmate who escaped Wednesday from the Waseskun Healing Center in Lanaudière.
David Everett Alexson, 51, was seen at around 6 p.m. leaving the premises of the community residential facility.
The 50-year-old is 1.70m tall, weighs 83kg, and has brown eyes and black hair with scars on his right hand and left arm as well as tattoos on both arms, chest and back.
“He is currently serving an indeterminate sentence for second degree murder (2 counts), arson, escape from legal custody, assault against a peace officer, prison breach with intent, break and enter with intent,” said in a press release from CSC.
The federal agency announces an investigation into the circumstances of this escape and collaborates with the Sûreté du Québec to arrest the fugitive.
Anyone who has information on David Everett Alexson can contact the Sûreté du Québec of the MRC de Matawinie.
