Then, at 10:26 a.m. when the jail had a room check Officer Edmon realized he was missing and thought “he’s gone!!” Jo McWordro had escaped from the tight dark square cell window. Then, he had grabbed a child’s bike out of a close by yard and started his journey down 227 Ave NE to Elk Island National Park it took him 2 hours 14 min until he was found, he had jumped out into an open field over the high way fence in the park in attempt to run away.
