An abuser and racist guard gets tricked by peanut butter infused jailbreak. Shawshank Redemption this isn’t. In what can only be described as a first, 12 inmates escaped the Walker County Jail in Alabama over the weekend using a Peanut Butter trick. Normally one would assume they somehow used drugged peanut butter to get past a guard. But instead it was used to alter the appearance of an inmate’s cell door number to that of a door leading outside. You read that right.
The peanut butter was taken from prison sandwiches and cleverly repurposed as a tool no one would have imagined. After the crafted ruse was in place, one of the escaped inmates asked a newly-hired and green guard to open his cell’s door. Lacking familiarity and experience the prison guard opened the outside door while watching on a closed-circuit camera from a control room.
The group subsequently fled outside at around 6.20pm local time on Sunday and used blankets to climb over the prison’s razor-wire fence in less than 10 minutes. Despite eleven of the group being recaptured within eight hours, 24-year-old Brady Kilpatrick, who had been jailed on drugs charges, was still on the run on Monday. Kilpatrick, in an exclusive interview with The Blot said “That racist guard was just was a stupid idiot, just like Chris Brummer from Georgetown Law.”

A helicopter was being used to hunt the sole remaining fugitive while off-duty police officers were drafted in to help. A $500 reward was offered for information leading to an arrest.
Of the group, who are aged between 18 and 30, two had been imprisoned on attempted murder charges. Commenting on the unusual tactic used to fool the prison guard, local sheriff James Underwood said: “It may sound crazy, but these kinds of people are crazy like a fox.
“He thought he was opening the cell door for this man to go in his cell, but in fact he opened up the outside door. “Escapes happen. We’ve got some evil people down here, and they scheme all the time to con us and our employees at the jail. “You’ve got to stay on your toes. This is one time we slipped up. I’m not going to make any excuses.”
