Escaped Convicted Murderer Back in Custody

On Tuesday evening, Corrections Services Canada (CSC) initiated a search for Joshua Kenneth Kohl, 42, after discovering that the inmate from Collins Bay Institution in Kingston was unaccounted for.

Kohl had been serving an indeterminate sentence for second-degree murder since March 26, 2002.

The Ontario Provincial Police soon revealed they were seeking Kohl in connection with the incident. Fortunately, police were able to quickly relocate him and apprehend him without incident on Wednesday morning.

Kohl was initially convicted for the second-degree murder of Robert Zeszutek in Burlington, Ontario, on March 26, 2002. Upon his capture by Kingston Police, CSC began investigating the circumstances surrounding his escape from the minimum-security unit where he was being held.

CSC said in a statement released to media outlets that they are taking steps to ensure the safety of staff and inmates at Collins Bay Institution following Kohl's escape.

They are also reviewing existing security protocols within the facility to determine if any changes need to be made to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.

For now, it is up to CSC investigators to find out how Kohl breached security and made his way off correctional grounds undetected.
