On Aug. 21, Canadian Corrections confirmed that a 28-year-old man convicted of manslaughter had managed to escape from a minimum-security unit at Stony Mountain Institution, Manitoba. According to a news release, the offender failed to show-up during Wednesday’s 7:30 a.m. head count, leading staff to discover that he was no longer present at the facility.

Dylan "Ringo" Carpenter was arrested a few years ago in connection with arson and the murder of 21-year-old Langford Ogemah, who died in December 2012 in Lakeside, Ontario. Shortly after that, Carpenter was convicted of manslaughter and is currently serving an eight year sentence at the Stony Mountain Institution in Manitoba, a federal facility.

Upon realizing that Carpenter was unaccounted for, the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) immediately contacted the Stonewall detachment of the RCMP as well as the Winnipeg Police Service. A warrant for his arrest has now been issued by police.


According to a news release provided by CSC, Dylan "Ringo" Carpenter is 28 years old, measures 165 centimetres (5'5") in height and weighs 64 kg (141 lbs). He has a medium complexion, brown eyes and black hair. He has a tattoo showing the outline of a naked woman on his right upper arm.

In a tweet on Wednesday afternoon, Winnipeg Police posted “Anyone who sees or has information regarding Ringo Carpenter is asked to contact us or RCMP immediately.”


The CSC has confirmed that they are in the process of investigating the circumstances of this incident, and how Carpenter managed to escape.

In a statement, the CSC added that they are working with local police in Manitoba and Winnipeg to locate the offender as quickly as possible.
