Jordan Bailey-Mascoll Biography
Who is Jordan Bailey-Mascoll ?
A killer who stabbed a man to death over his £7K Rolex watch has jumped the jail net to escape getting tested for Covid.
Jordan Bailey-Mascoll, 27, was too scared to undergo the simple lateral flow test at the virus-ravaged Whitemoor Category A prison in Cambridgeshire.
Prison bosses ordered the checks after it was deemed a “mass infection” site due to the number of cases.
The coward, who stabbed electrician Danny Pearce in 2017, ran off when guards approached him to test him.
He jumped onto the netting that surrounded the second floor of the A wing in protest.
A source said; He was asked to have a simple lateral flow test, but he refused.
“He didn’t like the idea of putting a swab up his nose and he told the officers where to go when asked.
‘As a result, his status as a prisoner was reduced from enhanced to basic regimen.
“This means that luxuries like a television would not be allowed.
“He was also angry that he couldn’t call his children when he wanted to.”
Bailey-Mascoll spent 90 minutes sulking before turning himself in to officers.
They put it in the report.
The lateral flow test involves taking a sample from the tonsils or inside the nose and placing drops on a test strip.
The results, whether positive or negative, are known within 30 minutes.
Bailey-Mascoll and his accomplice David Egan, now 35, were riding a motorcycle when they saw Pearce leaving a jazz club in Greenwich, southeast London.
He had been with his girlfriend Stephanie Holland, 31, at a night out at Oliver’s Jazz Club on July 15, 2017.
The couple, wearing crash helmets, were talking to people wearing luxury watches and saw that he had a Rolex.
Mr. Pearce refused to hand over his watch even though his attackers had a large knife and a “hunting” style pistol.
He ran away and was shot four times. The bullets missed. Cornered, he was stabbed multiple times by the two men.
His girlfriend ripped the Rolex off his wrist and threw it at his attackers in a vain attempt to save him.
Bailey-Mascoll was jailed for life with a minimum of 35 years in 2018 after a jury at Woolwich Crown Court found him guilty of murdering Pearce.
Egan, known as the Ghost, fled and was not captured until May 9, 2020.
He was jailed for life and must serve a minimum term of 35 years before the parole board can consider releasing him.
A Prison Service spokesman said: “This incident was quickly resolved by our hard-working staff.”
