Rise of the Dead
Roger Green was convicted of the execution-style murder of a man on April 16, 2002. The victim was scheduled to be a witness in a trial when he was killed. When Green was arrested, he was in possession of numerous weapons. He was sentenced to life in prison and was incarcerated in the California Department of Corrections, Deuel Vocational Institute, in Tracy, California. Green escaped on December 30, 2004, by cutting through the prison bars with hacksaw blades obtained from the machine shop at the institution. He then lowered himself to the ground with a rope made from bed sheets and climbed through a double fence between guard towers during dense nighttime fog. Green was recaptured in 2005 and held in a prison in North Carolina.
