Convicted killer escapes from medium-security prison in northwestern Pennsylvania

ALBION, Pa. A convicted murderer sentenced to life behind bars was on the loose Monday after escaping from a medium-security prison in northwestern Pennsylvania.

Guards conducting a routine inmate count discovered that Malcolm Kysor, 53, of Erie, was missing Sunday afternoon from the State Correctional Institution-Albion.

The prison was locked down Monday while state police and correction officials investigated how Kysor was able to get free, authorities said.

Kysor was convicted in January 1987 of first-degree murder in the beating death of Barney Fenton, 40. He was arrested in June 1981 for drunken driving in Fenton s car, and nearly a year later Fenton s remains were found buried along Interstate 79 outside Erie.

The medium-security prison southwest of Erie houses about 2,300 inmates, said Sue McNaughton, a state Department of Corrections spokeswoman.
