In the latest embarrassing headline for the S.C. Department of Corrections (SCDC), a well-known inmate has escaped from one of the agency's "maximum security" facilities ... prompting a massive manhunt.

The South Carolina Department of Corrections is actively searching for an inmate who escaped Wednesday afternoon.

Officials with the Department of Corrections say they are now on the hunt for an inmate who escaped a SC prison.

Authorities say an inmate has escaped from Lieber Correctional in Ridgeville. In 2005, while serving time at Broad River Correctional Institution, Causey hid in a dumpster that was carried off by a trash truck.

They were both captured days later. Brewer was found dead two years later after hanging himself with a bed sheet in his cell.

A man, sentenced to life in prison for kidnapping, has escaped from a maximum prison in Dorchester County, according to prison officials.

Causey had served prison time in 1992 for grand larceny and other charges, according to the Associated Press. Authorities said 47-year-old Michael Allen Williamson stabbed a police officer during his escape from McCormick Correctional Institution in the western part of the state. She was treated for two stab wounds to her arm and shoulder.
