The images released by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) mostra Gonzalo Lopez, 46, mentre veniva scortato su un autobus la mattina di maggio 12.
He was being transported from the Alfred Hughes Unit outside of Gatesville in central Texas to a prison medical facility in Huntsville. He was being held in a separate, caged area of the bus designed for high-risk inmates, hanno detto le autorità.
During the trip, Lopez managed to break free from his restraints, cut through a metal door and crawled through the bottom of the cage, hanno detto i funzionari. He allegedly stabbed the bus driver in the chest and a hand.
