Matthew Dean Lail, 28, of Abees Grove Church Road, Valdese was discovered by officers with the Burke County Sheriff’s Office on Western Avenue just outside the grounds of the North Carolina Department of Corrections, Western Youth Institute.

Approaching the suspect, officers reported Lail had wandered on foot to the driveway just outside the local prison, covered in blood and carrying a razor box cutter.
