Convicted Killer Sarah Pender Escapes From Ind. Prison
Cops say Sarah Jo Pender is a violent fugitive, accused of breaking out of an Indiana prison in early August 2008.
View Larger In 2000, cops say Sarah Jo Pender and her boyfriend killed their two roommates, shooting each of them with a shotgun and dumping their bodies in an Indianapolis dumpster. The two were eventually captured by police in Noblesville, Ind. and were sentenced in Marion County in 2002.
Pender's accomplice in the murder, Richard Hull, is currently serving a 75-year sentence, while Pender had been serving a maximum 110-year sentence for her role in the murders.
It seems that nearly six years behind bars was all Pender could take, as in August 2008, she busted out of Rockville Correctional Facility shortly before a routine inmate head count. IDOC officials say Rockville Correctional Facility is a mutli-level, medium-security penitentiary, which has the ability to hold all levels of female offenders. It would have and should have held Pender, too, if it were not for her manipulative ways.
Since the story first broke, Rockville Correctional Facility Officer Scott A. Spitler, a five-year veteran of the institution, has been arrested in connection with Pender's escape. He faces charges of Assisting a Criminal, Official Misconduct, Sexual Misconduct and Trafficking with an Inmate.
The Indiana Department of Corrections tells AMW that Spitler allegedly drove Pender out of the prison after hiding her in the back of his IDOC van.
Once beyond the prison gates, cops say ex-inmate Jamie Long, one of Pender's closest friends, was waiting patiently for Spitler to approach. When Spitler came to a stop, Pender then emerged from the backseat of his van and hopped into Long's vehicle, and she has remained on the lam ever since.
But how did Pender coordinate this masterful escape?
