Weird planet: Inmates break jail, promise to return soon via note

Two inmates were reported to have managed to escape from Rebibbia prison in Italy and left behind a letter explaining their reason for escaping and promising to be back soon.

On the night of June 2, Davad Zukanovic, 40 and Lil Ahmetovic, 46, two cousins serving time at Rome’s Rebibbia prison, managed to escape by cutting through the bars on their prison cell window, rappelling down into the courtyard on a fire hydrant water hose and climbing over the outer walls by climbing the barbed wire with a wire cutter.

This alone was a feat worthy of a Hollywood movie, but what really made their escape stand out was the note they left in their prison cell, explaining that they had an urgent family problem to take care of and promised to return in 15 days.

In their letter to the prison staff, Zukanovic and Ahmetovic, as reported by OddityCentral, claimed that they had to escape to “protect their children from a nasty business they had got themselves into,” adding that they were the only ones able to do this since both their wives were also behind bars.

In the end, a couple of lines read that the two plan to return and stand before the judicial authority as soon as their personal matter was resolved.

Italian police have no doubts about the authenticity of the letter, since it was found in the cell they had escaped from and had their fingerprints on it. But they were having trouble believing the promise of the two fugitives, which is why they had been trying to track them down and cut short their little adventure.

Zukanovic and Ahmetovic were serving sentences due to end in 2029 for non-violent crimes, including fraud and receiving stolen goods. Even if they respected the promise made in their letter, they would face a five-year sentence extension for escaping the prison. That only makes their voluntary return even more unlikely.
