On 12/21/2016, at approximately 5:00PM, 27 year old Shaquana Rebecca Williams of Hammond, girlfriend of escaped inmate Michael Dwayne Day, was taken into custody for her involvement in Day's escape where he walked away from the Tangi Food Bank. The investigation conducted by Sheriff's Office Detectives revealed that Williams and Day had planned the escape days prior to the incident. Williams admitted that she picked Day up from a convenience store just a short distance away and transported him to an undisclosed location where she gave him money and left with plans to return later.
Williams was charged with Assisting Escape, a crime punishable up to 5 years, and booked into the Tangipahoa Parish Jail where she awaits a Court Appearance Thursday (December 22) morning.
This investigation is still ongoing and the Sheriff's Office asks the public again for any information that may lead to the location and arrest of Day.
