article imagePrisoner's Origami Flower: When you Don’t Care Enough to Send the Very Best

There are all kinds of ways to apologize. This prisoner in a U.S. jail became a little creative in showing his own particular brand of remorse.
According to news sources, Luis Camacho-Mendoza escaped from a detention center in Crawford County, Arkansas, and left a toilet paper origami flower behind as his way of apologizing for the trouble he caused.
The prisoner later said this flower was meant as a gift to jail administrator, Captain Jeff Marvin, because he felt bad for escaping.
Camacho-Mendoza escaped by manipulating locks on a door that led outside the prison while he was supposed to be performing kitchen duties. According to the local paper, The Times Record, when he was later recaptured, he told police that the flower was “an act of remorse.”
Although it would seem that the prisoner had to be somewhat of a clever fellow to find an escape route, he had trouble hiding from the SWAT team who returned him to custody the next day.
Ken Howard of the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office said:
His head and most of his upper body were tucked in a pillowcase and the rest of him was hidden in a pile of clothing. He wasn’t hiding very well because you could see the outline of his head in the pillow- case.
Camacho-Mendoza is currently being held at the detention centre after he was arrested on suspicion of drug offenses. He faces deportation to Mexico.
Go figure.
