U.S. Marshals plan jail investigation after Blount Co. escape

Monday marked day five in the search for an escaped federal prisoner. Somehow, Dewyatt Hill was released from the Blount County Jail Wednesday.

U.S. Marshals tell 10News Hill faces a 71-year sentence after being convicted for multiple take-over style pharmacy robberies.

A special team of regional marshals, The Smoky Mountain Fugitive Task Force, is leading the Hill investigation.

10News has asked the Blount County Sheriff’s Office how and why Dewyatt Hill was released from the jail.  Officials with the Sheriff’s Office continue to deny the request for an interview about those details.
