Troy Leon Gregg was serving a death sentence for an armed robbery when he managed to escape with three other inmates in 1980. Dressed in homemade prison officer uniforms, complete with fake badges, the four sawed through the bars of their cells and then left in a car parked in the visitors’ parking lot by a friend outside prison.

In an ironic twist of fate, Gregg was killed later that night in a bar fight. It was the day before he was set to be executed.
