UPDATE: According to the Alabama Sheriff, the inmates escaped by tricking the guard into opening the door by covering the identifying numbers on the outside door with peanut butter. A new worker at the jail then was fooled into opening the outside door instead of the door to the man’s cell, giving the inmate freedom.
UPDATE: The last inmate, Brady Kilpatrick, has been caught in Florida. Kilpatrick was captured about 20 miles north of West Palm Beach.
