Glen Stewart Godwin was imprisoned for the brutal murder of a former friend and fled to Mexico after his subsequent escape from prison for that crime. Whilst in prison he murdered another inmate and escaped again. In 1996 the FBI's added Godwin to the ten most wanted list, only removing him in 2016. His escape from Folsom prison in 1987 could be considered the inspiration for Stephen King's Shawshank Redemption.
