Kentucky State Police say they are searching for an inmate who escaped from the Green River Correctional Complex.
Police said in a statement that the state prison in western Kentucky reported that 44-year-old Charles Pedigo escaped from the facility Wednesday evening. Authorities say he was serving a 29-year sentence on assault charges.
Pedigo has ties to Hardin County, in addition to Allen and Simpson Counties. He is originally from Scottsville, and is described as 5-foot-9 and 230 pounds. Police say he has a tattoo of the Grim Reaper on his left arm and a tattoo of a dream catcher with an eagle on his upper right arm.
Anyone with information on Pedigo’s location is urged to contact police.
