After two of Missouri's most dangerous prisoners escaped from the state penitentiary, K-O-M-U TV investigated how these criminals could be missing. To find these answers, they did an overnight investigation. Their reports showed lapses in laws being enforced, security being allowed to lapse over time, and prison officials' unwillingness to fix this "old" prison because o fan upcoming move to a new facility. i.e. parts of the wall surrounding the prison fell down and were never repaired due to the move and money.
