‘Lost Boy’ prison escapee shot and killed after surrendering in South Carolina

A Southern California jail escapee was fatally shot Wednesday after surrendering to police in South Carolina, law enforcement said.

In 1996, he and an accomplice broke out of the minimum-security Central Men’s Jail near Los Angeles.

Frederick McLean, whose real name was Michael Charles Aloy Jr., was nicknamed “the Lost Boy” for fleeing the scene. Police initially thought Aloy might be wounded, CNN affiliate KABC-TV reported.

Aloy, 53, who spent 16 years on the run, was arrested in Charleston after officers at the Buckwalter Place apartment complex in West Ashley, South Carolina, saw a man matching his description walk out of a rental unit, CNN affiliate WCSC-TV reported.

Police described Aloy as a paroled sex offender and said he had violated parole for having sex with a minor.

Detectives found the remains of Aloy’s mother in a shallow grave in Northern California in August, KCRA-TV reported.

The Escondido Police Department issued a warrant for his arrest after his mother died of cancer in San Diego, CNN affiliate KSWB-TV reported.

Aloy was wanted on 10 charges, including murder, in the killing of a 30-year-old college student during a drug deal, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
