New Hampshire inmate search: Peter DiBiaso escaped jail

Belknap County Jail officials have released new information about an inmate who escaped Monday night. Peter DiBiaso, 57, is considered dangerous, and it’s not known whether he was armed after he escaped. Jail officials said DiBiaso was working in the laundry room around 8:30 pm Monday. A routine check on the room was made at 9:30 pm, jail officials said.”When our staff went back to check on him during the routine checks, the door leading from our main hallway into the room was barricaded,” said jail superintendent Adam Cunningham. “They forced their way in and then found the exterior door was forced open.” Officials said he escaped through an exterior door that was not wired to an alarm, scaled a 10-foot-high fence that did not have barbed wire and fled. “It’s time for that portion of the facility to be removed and a new portion built,” Cunningham said. A K-9 search was conducted Monday night, but he was not found. “They were unable to pick up the scent,” said Sheriff Bill Wright. “We believe that there was just a little bit of time that had passed, and they were unable to get that scent.” Officials said DiBiaso was seen on a home Ring camera north of the jail around 11:30 pmAccording to the Belknap County Department of Corrections online inmate search, DiBiaso was awaiting trial on a series of charges, including domestic violence criminal threatening with a deadly weapon, stalking and being an armed career criminal. Authorities said DiBiaso was caught on surveillance video north of the jail, but believe he would eventually make his way south, as he was last apprehended in Florida. They said he was then brought to New Hampshire to face current charges. Wright said they believe DiBiaso is acting alone, but said he has friends and family in the area. Anyone who sees DiBiaso should not approach him or attempt to apprehend him. Instead, call Belknap County Dispatch at 603-527-5454, extension 0.”It’s not necessarily what they’re going to do to get themselves out of this, it’s what they’re going to do to keep themselves from getting caught,” Wright said. “That’s the most concern for us.” A reward of up to $2,500 is being offered by the US Marshals-New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force for information leading directly to DiBiaso’s location and arrest of him. DiBiaso is described as white, 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 180 pounds, with blue eyes and blond hair. He has several tattoos, including on his right hand, left forearm, chest, back, left ankle and left shoulder. According to the jail’s superintendent, this is the first inmate escape since 2008.
