Jailbirds Stage ‘Shawshank’ Prison Break

19 12 2007

Two inmates in a prison in New Jersey have staged a daring escape apparently inspired by the film The Shawshank Redemption!!!

The cunning duo, said to be armed and dangerous, are still on the run after digging holes in the walls of their cells and squeezing through.

As in The Shawshank Redemption, they used posters of cover girls to hide the holes they had dug in their walls.

The pair, Jose Espinosa and Otis Blunt, left a note wishing the authorities “Happy Holidays” and thanking a guard they claimed had helped them…. how nice!

Espinosa, 20, had pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter following a drive-by shooting and was facing a minimum of 17 years when he was due to be sentenced on January 25.
