Tonight at 11: WIS Investigates mental health department escape

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

A January escape from the S.C. Department of Mental Health sparked a WIS investigation. The WIS investigative team obtained the State Law Enforcement Division's investigation into Jason Carter's escape.

The details in the SLED report show Carter's mental illness defense was his hope of escaping a 2009 murder conviction in Oconee County.

In addition, many changes to a work program and policies at the Department of Mental Health are a direct result of Carter's escape, especially after he was able to obtain a bank card and withdraw thousands of dollars to extradite his escape while under the department's supervision.
