Yesterday, we shared a story about the 12 Alabama inmates that escaped from Walker County jail in Jasper.
As of this morning, only one is still on the run.
However, the story has taken a strange turn.
Residents near the jail were furious that drug dealers and murderers were on the loose near their homes and threatened to "shoot on site".
They also demanded answers for how this could have happened.
And now we know....
It's a little unbelievable so I will have to use an exact quote from the press release.
According to Sheriff James Underwood, "They changed the number over the door with peanut butter,"
"(Then) they hollered, 'Hey, open door' so-and-so, but (the number the inmates gave the worker) was the outside door."
"And unknowingly to him, he hit that lock and out the door they went."
The jailer was a newbie who became confused about the numbers on the doors.
The inmates then threw blankets over the barbed wire and were free.
