According to The Guardian, John Massey was released on parole in 2007 and was ordered to live in a hostel in Streatham, south London.
However he left the hostel to live with his dying father.
He was sent back to prison for breaking his parole terms and was sent back to an open jail in West Sussex.
He then escaped from this open jail after hearing his sister was gravely ill. He was rearrested 10 months later and taken to Pentonville.
