Union officials said this week that David Elliot's escape was easier because guard towers are now empty to save money
The Michigan Attorney Generals Office will conduct an investigation into how a man imprisoned for multiple murders was able to escape from the Ionia County Correctional Facility on Sunday and remain on the loose for nearly a full day. Michael David Elliot, 40, walked past a string of security cameras and guards to open a prison fence with his bare hands.
