"Richard Rodriguez was convicted of the execution-style murder of a man on April 16, 1972. The victim was scheduled to be a witness in a trial when he was killed. When Rodriguez was arrested, he was in possession of numerous weapons. He was sentenced to life in prison and was incarcerated in the California Department of Corrections, Deuel Vocational Institute, in Tracy, California. Rodriguez escaped on December 30, 1978, by cutting through the prison bars with hacksaw blades obtained from the machine shop at the institution. He then lowered himself to the ground with a rope made from bed sheets and climbed through a double fence between guard towers during dense nighttime fog. A federal arrest warrant for Rodriguez was issued on January 10, 1979, in Sacramento, California, after he was charged with unlawful flight to avoid confinement."
Thoughts? The above is the FBI archived description for Rodriguez, who was aired on AMW in the 1990's. As far as any of us know, Rodriguez is still at large as of this posting date (10/27/2015), although he's since been taken off the FBI's current website. (His profile is still in the archives obviously). If anyone ever has any updates/proof-of-updates one way or the other, they are always more than welcome to let us know. Rodriguez would be 66 years old as of the aforementioned posting date, obviously relatively young and may still be alive.
