El Chapo was regarded as fierce and powerful with his influence and record of multiple capture and escapes. His first successful prison escape was in 2001, which led to his 13 years of a manhunt by the government, only to be captured and escape again in 2015. Upon his capture in 2016, El Chapo was extradited to the United States to seek out the rest of his prison sentence in a super-maximum prison in Colorado. El Chapo oversaw series of nefarious activities such as human trafficking, money laundering, assassination and collusion with corrupt government officials.

In 2004, Dennis Radder reappeared when he sent some packages to the media. Following this, the police intensified their investigation until he was arrested and sentenced to ten consecutive life sentences in 2005.

Two years later, in 1977, it was found that Berkowitz had killed more than six people and wounded dozens of others. He sent a series of letters to the New York Police Department, where he regarded himself as the Son of David and was hellbent on wreaking havoc on the city. Despite his elusive tendency, he was later arrested in 1977 after he was sentenced to six consecutive life sentences.

Upon her arrest and detention, Joanna was said to have written an exit  plan from the prison, which included a series of crazy activities such as cutting the fingers of one correctional officer to open the biometric doors and also causing mass riots in jail.
