New Jersey the Sequel

With no Death Penalty in New Jersey what have they got to lose?



ELIZABETH, N.J. — Two jail inmates used photos of bikini-clad women to hide holes they used to escape and left behind a thank-you note,signed with a smiley face, for a guard they claimed helped them, officials said Monday. Jose Espinosa, 20, and Otis Blunt, 32, squeezed through the openings sometime before dawn Saturday in a high-security unit of the Union County jail, jumped onto a rooftop below, and made it over a 25-foot-high fence topped with razor wire, authorities said. Authorities withheld the name of the officer the inmates said was involved.



The note, found in Espinosa's cell, read, "Thank you Officer ... for the tools needed. You're a real pal. Happy holidays." Authorities are investigating the claims. The guard named in the note has not yet turned in a report, and disciplinary action has not been taken against any guard, said county prosecutor Theodore J. Romankow

said, whose office is overseeing the escape investigation. (Source.)

Romankow.
