From the "Great Escape" to the not-so-great "Toilet Escape", these are the most amazing jailbreaks both recent and historic, as well as massive police searches and manhunts.
Marie Hilley, who killed her husband with poison and attempted to do away with her daughter in the same way, was so well-behaved in prison that officials gave her a three-day furlough. After walking out of prison, she spent four days crawling around in cold, muddy woods until she was found on February 26, 1987, and brought to a hospital where she died.
On February 15, 1978, Ted Bundy was arrested, this time for good. While at a Colorado jail, he’d sawed a hole in his cell and lost 35 pounds to be able to wriggle through it. He made his way to Chicago, then Michigan–where he caught a college football game–and finally down to Florida, where he killed six women before being captured.
After a litany of lame excuses intended to get her out of an arrest, Ohio woman Tamara Grissett told police she was in pain and was having complications with her pregnancy. No word on whether she is actually pregnant.
In a potentially great escape gone wrong, a Texas man trying to free a prisoner joins him in the lockup.
