On 12/13/2000 seven convicts break out of prison
when they escaped they left a note saying that "you havent heard the last of us".this man hunt lasted for 6 months
while the police were sreaching for the men. There was a long list of crimes convicted on the convects like robberes,murders,rape, and violent-crimes.
The Texas Seven then fled to Colorado, where they purchased a motor home, told people they were Christian missionaries and spent the month at a trailer park near Woodland Park, Colorado.
On January 22, 2001, a tip from someone who had seen the Texas Seven profiled on the TV program America's Most Wanted led police to the fugitives. Ringleader George Rivas was captured along with three of the other men. A fifth fugitive committed suicide after being surrounded by police.
Two days later, law enforcement officials closed in on the two remaining escapeesat a hotel in Colorado Springs. A standoff ensued, during which the fugitives conducted phone interviews with a TV news station and claimed their escape was a protest against Texas' criminal justice system. The men then surrendered to authorities.
In February 2001, the six surviving memebers of the Texas Seven were indicted on capital murder charges in the death of Officer Hawkins. Each man was later convicted and sentenced to death.
