Nominate West Virginia Lock Up in the Best New and Best Law Blogs

The 2009 Weblog Awards
Whoever happens to stop by this blog may wonder why I started it. Whenever I read news stories online I always like to put a face to the story. So I got to thinking maybe other people would as well. I always keep up on WV news and most stories don't have the mugshots with them so I hunt them up online and post them with the story. It's not that hard and I don't know why the state news sites don't do it

Escaped inmate back in custody

One of two inmates who escaped from a work camp last month is back in custody.

State corrections officials said Kenneth Ray Hager, 30, turned himself in to Boone County authorities Friday.

Hager and William Okey Cline, 25, were discovered missing during a head count Oct. 26 at the minimum-security Slayton Work Camp at Mount Olive Correctional Complex.

Hager was serving time for burglary, grand larceny and breaking and entering in Boone County. Cline was sentenced for daytime burglary in Wyoming County. Cline remained at-large Friday.

Authorities said Hager was being held at Southwestern Regional Jail and would be returned to Mount Olive today.
