Internet Sensation? Escaped Prisoner Teases Police With Facebook Photos

article-1238920-07B6C723000005DC-298_468x587_popupCraig Lynch, who escaped England’s Suffolk’s Hollesley Bay Prison in September, is using Facebook updates to brag about his freedom, posting a steady stream of status messages and rude photos to mock the authorities who have been after him for months. On Christmas, a tinsel-clad and shirtless Lynch (left) flicked off the camera with one hand, and in the other, held a freshly cooked turkey. “‘If any of you was doubtin my freedom. Here’s proof. How the f*** could i get my hands on a bird like this in jail. ha ha,” he wrote.

The British press are obviously eating up the stunt like Lynch probably scarfed that Christmas white meat, with both the Daily Mail and Times Online tracking his misadventures.

In one status update, Lynch asked, “In my situation where would YOU hide?” One responder noted, “You got the whole nation cheering you on.” Except, of course, the police, who are working with Facebook to find Lynch.

But for now, if you’re looking for new friends you can find Lynch here.
