Inmate to Roommate: Bill Hawley has a very checkered past
Bill Hawley once lived as a car and jewel thief. To make matters worse, he also escaped prison at one point. Starcasm reports that Bill had five years left to serve when he pretended to be sick while out on work detail. The supervisor let him take a short break under a bridge and that’s where Bill made his grand escape.
He got rid of his prison uniform and found a woman willing to give him a ride. Bill lied and said that his car was broken down and his partner was about to deliver a baby. The woman also gave him a meal. According to CBS News, the woman was a little uneasy once she realized who Bill Hawley actually was.
“She got a little weak in the knees when she realized what could have happened,” Sgt. John Silvas said. However, the woman also reported that Bill Hawley never made her feel afraid.
“He was very nice,” Silvas continued. “They talked about religion, family.”
From then on, Hawley managed to hide from the police for two weeks. They eventually recaptured him when he tried to rob a Sears with a crowbar. When authorities showed up, they also found a glass pipe with cocaine residue. Once they had his fingerprints, they realized who he really was. At this point, it wasn’t looking great for Hawley.
