After detention centre staff inadvertently released a murder suspect and hid the incident for six days to gain a “tactical advantage” in locating him, a huge manhunt was launched in Indiana.

Kevin Mason, 28, was unintentionally released from the Adult Detention Centre (ADC) on September 13, two days after his arrest, according to a press release from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office. This was “due to a faulty record review” by staff, the announcement stated.

Two employees have subsequently been fired, and an internal inquiry into the event is ongoing.

Six days after Mason’s unintentional release, authorities appealed to the public for help.

In order to maintain a “tactical advantage” in their search, according to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, deputies did not immediately alert the public about his unintentional release.

According to the authorities, the murder suspect is wanted in Minnesota on three separate warrants.

Mason is allegedly related to the fatal shooting outside the Shiloh Temple, a Pentecostal church, in Minneapolis in 2021, according to FOX 9 Minneapolis.

Mason and Dontevius Ahmad Catchings got into a brawl outside Shiloh Temple, according to court documents FOX 9 reviewed.

According to witnesses, Mason’s alleged failure to return a gun to Catchings was the cause of the argument.

Catchings turned to leave when the altercation appeared to be ended when Mason pulled out a gun and started shooting at Catchings. His wounds caused his death. Following a prior conviction, Mason was charged with second-degree murder and handgun possession.

He is described as being 5 feet 9 inches tall, 205 pounds, and tattooed with the initials SUB on his chest, a cross underneath his left eye, and other designs on his neck.
