Edwin Wylie Biggs
To help their re-entry into society, prisoners at the Renewal Center downtown are encouraged to leave during the day to work jobs. But although they’re subjected to pat downs and breathalyzer tests when they return, they’re pretty much free to not come back or leave at any time.
Police say Edwin Wylie Biggs walked away from Renewal Inc., a half-way house, and had been on the run. He was spotted going into a girlfriend’s home on Third Avenue.
