Man guilty of murder didn’t hear the verdict — because he escaped during lunch break, Ga. cops say
A Georgia man on trial for murder in April didn’t stick around to hear the verdict. Instead, 26-year-old Verlaine Laguerre slipped out of an Atlanta, Georgia, courthouse during a lunch break April 20, according to the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office. More than week later, the escaped convict is still on the run, FOX 5 reports. Georgia authorities described Laguerre as dangerous.
