Flight attendant murderer escapes in S. Korea
font size    

A 37-year-old S. Korean criminal Wednesday escaped from a district prosecutors' office right before being transported to prison, upon being sentenced to life imprisonment on charges of killing a female flight attendant.

The escapee, identified as Min Byong-il, was arrested for murdering the attendant and abandoning her body after taking money from her in Songnam, Kyonggi Province, in March.

Min got the sentence yesterday evening at the district court and was transferred to a detention room at the prosecutors' office.

When three prison guards were to tie him with a rope to take him to prison in Seoul at around 3 p.m., Min pushed the guards and ran away by scaling down a wall.

Min, who escaped in prison uniform, stole a training jacket, pants and a pair of white sneakers from a nearby house. It was also confirmed that he made a phone call to his friend in Chung-dong, Songnam, at 4:10 p.m.

Police placed 1,400 officers at nearby roads and offered a cash reward for those who report Min��s whereabouts.

Arrest Warrant Issued for Kyonggi Research Institute Head
