Despite what movies and television depict , most prison escapes do not involve sirens, barking dogs, or huge searchlights. The majority of escapees are considered "escapees" because they do not return from furloughs, they leave a community service center and never return, or simply walk away from a prison work detail.
Here are some of the men and women charged with crimes who are considered escapees in the state of Tennessee. NEVER attempt to apprehend or take the law into your own hands.
