    FL - Manhunt for Ronald McCoy, Escaped Prisoner

    A prisoner with a long history of violent crime turned up missing Friday during an 11:30 a.m. headcount at Dade Correctional Institution, a state prison that has been plagued by mismanagement and allegations of corruption and the abuse of mentally ill inmates by corrections officers.

    Itís not clear precisely when or how Ronald McCoy, who was serving life, slipped away, two sources at the prison told the Miami Herald. The prison is located south of Homestead.

    He was found three days later:


    The Florida Department of Law Enforcement said 39-year-old Ronald McCoy was caught in West Palm Beach.

    He was located at a Sunoco at 45 Street and Australian Avenue after an anonymous tip...

    Agents believe he hid in a trash dumpster leaving the prison.
