2 Convicted Murderers Mistakenly Freed

murderers_freed_accident_2013(CNN) — The state of Florida is asking for help in locating two former prison inmates that they realized should still be current inmates.

Charles Walker and Joseph Jenkins, both 34, are considered “escapees” by authorities, but their prison break wasn’t exactly a scene out of “The Shawshank Redemption.”

Walker and Jenkins — both convicted murderers — separately walked out of the Franklin Correctional Institution located on Florida’s panhandle “in accordance with Department of Corrections policy and procedure,” according to Department of Corrections Secretary Michael Crews.

“However, both of their releases were based on fraudulent modifications that had been made to court orders,” he said.
