Squeezing Through Ventilation System
On April 6, 2010 convicted kidnapper Octavio Ramos Lopez (right) and murderer Jose Bustos-Diaz (left) jammed a ventilation fan, crawled through the ventilation ducts of the Dolph Briscoe Unit in Dilley, Texas, and cut their way through the perimeter fence to freedom. The two, both Mexican nationals, remain at large and the search continues, although the location of the prison, only 80 miles from the U.S.-Mexican border makes it possible that the two have already crossed back into Mexico.
