PD report: Little warning before accused killer's escape

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — Newly obtained documents about a murder suspect’s escape from the Kalamazoo County jail show just how big of a surprise it was.

Other than a quick comment by Donnovan Lewis moments before his Sept. 19 escape, it doesn’t appear anyone else knew of his plans.

Lewis is charged with open murder in the June 28 death of his girlfriend, 24-year-old Aniya Mack. She was found dead in a suitcase in Comstock Creek in June.

Police reports obtained by 24 Hour News 8 Wednesday through the Freedom of Information Act show that on the morning of Sept. 19, other inmates say Lewis told them, “Man, I’m gonna jump the fence.”
