He didn't escape he was released after getting back on his meds. This was after chopping off the head of a young local man on a Greyhound bus. Not guilty by reason of insanity. Changed his name to Will Baker.

Wow, seems it really could be the same guy?  If so that is pretty scary.

Hmm, not convinced. Surely, even if released into the community, he'd still be under some sort of supervision which would prevent him from leaving the jurisdiction?

Apparently not, according to this article in The Independent:  https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/mentally-ill-canada-manitoba-will-baker-vince-lee-beheaded-tim-mclean-freed-supervision-a7575866.html

"
A mentally ill man who stabbed and beheaded another passenger on a bus has been freed from all supervision. Will Baker, formerly known as Vince Li, was granted absolute discharge without monitoring by the Criminal Code Review Board in Manitoba, Canada."

That really is quite unbelievable.  If it really is the same guy (it seems too much of a coincidence for it not to be) then people should be informed.
