Police are on the lookout for an offender who escaped from the Stan Daniels Healing Centre in the central Edmonton area.
In a series of tweets Thursday morning, Correctional Service said Jesse Leppanen, 27, escaped from the healing centre, located at 9516 101 Ave N.W.
Leppanen is 5’6 and weighs approx. 146 pounds. He’s described as having a fair complexion, with blue eyes and blonde hair. He has tattoos on both arms, both legs, chest, neck, shoulders and ears.
He is currently serving a sentence for manslaughter and failure to comply with condition of undertaking or recognizance.
This is unfortunately not the first time in recent history that an inmate has escaped from an Edmonton area facility. Police had to ask for assistance in locating a woman who escaped from the Edmonton Institute for Women just last August.
Anyone with information of the location of Leppanen is asked to contact police.
