Convicted Killers Escape Fla. Prison Thanks to Forged Documents

October 18, 2013  | 

Two convicted killers walked out of prison after forged documents effectively reduced their sentences. They then went to an Orange County, Fla., jail and followed procedure to register as felons as freed prisoners would be expected to, according to the Boston Herald.

Charles Walker and Joseph Jenkins, both 34, are considered "escapees" by authorities after investigators discovered forged motions to reduce their respective sentences and forged court orders granting the request, according to authorities, reports CNN.

A statewide review of prison records are currently underway to find any similar forgeries and Florida officials are currently searching for the two men.

Both we're recaptured in Panama City, Florida. They didn't go very far.
