Fourth prison employee dies following escape attempt”

Geoffrey Howe, a maintenance mechanic for the former Correction Enterprises sewing plant at Pasquotank Correctional Institution, died Thursday at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital from injuries suffered during a failed inmate escape attempt on October 12.

Geoffrey Howe, a maintenance mechanic for the former Correction Enterprises sewing plant at Pasquotank Correctional Institution in ElizabethCity, passed away Thursday at Sentara Norfolk (Va.) General Hospital from injuries suffered during a failed inmate escape attempt on October 12.

He celebrated his one year anniversary with the Department of Public Safety in August. Correctional officers Justin Smith and Wendy Shannan, and Correction Enterprises Sewing Plant Manager Veronica Darden all passed away from injuries sustained in the incident as well. Several inmates attempted to escape following the fire, but officials said no inmates left the prison yard. Howe, 31, worked in Correction Enterprises' sewing plant at Pasquotank CI.

Officials have charged Wisezah Buckman, Seth J. Frasier, Mikel Brady and Jonathan M. Monk with first-degree murder.

North Carolina prison officials still can't put their finger on how many guards and inmates had been assaulted at an understaffed prison prior to the deadliest attempted prison breakout in state history last month.

There are now 676 male inmates at the prison. Three employees died and one remains gravely injured after the failed breakout three weeks ago.
