Roberts free after 32 years


Share post:

A CONVICTED MURDERER who escaped the hangman’s noose in the 1990s, walked out of her Majesty’s Prisons Dodds a free man yesterday morning after 32 years behind bars.

Denzil Orlando Roberts, who gained notoriety in 1991 when he escaped from death row at Glendairy Prison along with convicted murderers Winston Hall (deceased), David Oliver and Peter Bradshaw, has tasted freedom once again, this time after his life sentence was remitted by the local Privy Council.

Dodds Superintendent John Nurse confirmed to the MIDWEEK NATION that Roberts was no longer an inmate at the St Philip penal institution.

When a NATION team visited his home at Tichbourne, Howell’s Cross Road, St Michael, Roberts was not there, but neighbours reported that they had seen him walking the road accompanied by a family member. (MB)
