Last Escaped Inmate Captured In Gulfport

Mark Kee Brown was escorted back into the Harrison County Jail Tuesday at high noon, just 55 hours after he escaped the facility. He was picked up in Gulfport around Hewes and 26 1/2 Street.

As Brown walked into the jail he was barefoot, shackled, and wearing a camouflage shirt.

His only comment to WLOX reporter Brad Kessie was, "I'm here for no reason."

Deputies have been following tips on Brown's possible location since he and three other inmates broke out of the jail Sunday morning.

Records show Mark Kee Brown has a criminal history that goes back more than a decade. In 1996, a then 21-year-old Brown pleaded guilty to burglary, possession of a controlled substance, receiving stolen property and grand larceny. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison with five years suspended.

Officials say Brown was released in 2000, soon to be arrested again for possession of a controlled substance among other charges. He wouldn't stay in jail long.

In April 2000, Mark Kee Brown escaped from the Harrison County jail along with four other inmates. Police said they cut through a second floor window. Brown was at large for 18 days before being captured at a hotel on Highway 90 in Gulfport.

Officials say Brown did five more years for the possession charge and for the escape before he was released in 2005. That same year Larry Turner of D'Iberville was shot to death in what police called a botched robbery.
