In 2015 we saw several prison escapes, including two men from Clinton Correctional Facility in upstate New York, as well as Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán's infamous escape from a maximum security Mexican prison through an underground tunnel. Now just barely three weeks into 2016 we already have our first prison escape of the year.
Three men escaped from Central Men's Jail in Orange County, finding a way to cut through steel, move through piping, and use bed sheets as rope to jump off the roof of the facility. These men are all convicted of serious crimes and believed to be very dangerous, which makes you wonder how it could have been so easy for them to escape.
As far as we know, the men did not receive any help from the inside as the Clinton Correctional prisoners did. How then were they able to pull off their escape without being noticed?
Perhaps the details of El Chapo's escape can provide some insight into the Orange County prisoners' successful break out.
