Escaped Inmate in Evangeline Parish

Update: The warden of the jail won't comment on how Soileau escaped from jail or what time he escaped.  They simply say it's an active investigation.  Soileau isn't expected to be armed and dangerous; they do say he's cut up and bloody.   We asked why residents or the media wasn't notified  immediately.  The warden directed that question to the Sheriff.  Our calls to the Sheriff's Office are not being returned.  We will be stopping by to see if they'll talk in person.


Nearly 12 hours after we reported residents of Pine Prairie should be looking out for an escaped inmate, public officials are now confirming the escape. All we've gotten up until now has been "no comment". KATC's Jenise Fernandez is meeting with a detective right now to learn more details. What we do know is that he is still on the run and that schools in the area are on lockdown. Brian Keith Soileau was arrested back in August for allegedly robbing a bank with his wife in Evangeline Parish.
