In 2003, Lonnie Payne escaped from a correctional facility in Louisiana while serving a 12-year sentence for burglary. He simply walked away while going through an unlocked fence because he was on grass cutting duty.

Hey I remember Lonnie Payne when I was browsing through the marshals page, I’m finally glad he’s been captured after being on the run for 15 years.
