🏊‍♂️💀 Double-Trouble Dumpster Duo: One Captured, One Found Drowned in Ohio River!

TL;DR: A double homicide convict’s great escape ends in the Ohio River, while his dumpster-diving partner in crime gets nabbed after a car chase. Talk about a wet blanket on their runaway plans! 😅🚔💥🚗💨


Brace yourselves, folks! You’re about to plunge into a chillingly entertaining chapter from the book of real-life prison escape stories! Bradley Gillespie, a 50-year-old double murderer, sentenced to two hefty life sentences, has been found doing the dead man’s float in the Ohio River. After a game of hide-and-seek with authorities (hiding in a dumpster, no less 🗑️🙈), Gillespie decided to take a permanent swim, while his accomplice got caught playing Grand Theft Auto.

Let’s rewind a bit, shall we? Just last week, Gillespie and his partner in crime, the 47-year-old safe-cracker James Lee, made like Harry and Marv from Home Alone, ditching their cells for the freedom of a dumpster. But as it turns out, freedom ain’t all it’s cracked up to be when you’re on the lam! 🏃‍♂️💨

Lee got a taste of this when the law caught up with him after he decided to spice things up with a stolen car. Speeding through Henderson, he was finally apprehended 350 miles away from their starting point in Lima, Ohio. The only thing missing was a bunch of banana peels and some comedic music! 🎵🚗💨🍌

After the high-speed chase ended in a fender-bender, Gillespie booked it on foot. But did he take a wrong turn at the riverbank? Did the thrill of escape turn into a scene from Titanic? 🌊🏊‍♂️

As of now, our two-time murderer’s underwater exit remains a mystery. Could it be he misjudged his swimming abilities, or was he just trying to cool off from all that running? ❄️🏃‍♂️💨 We can’t help but wonder.


Now, we must state clearly and firmly: This ain’t no advice column, folks. Don’t go getting any wild ideas about following in these guys’ footsteps. Turnt Up News doesn’t endorse or recommend prison breaks, car theft, or unsupervised river swimming. It’s all fun and games till someone ends up in cuffs… or in a river.

So, here we are at the end of this wild ride. If there’s a moral to this story, what could it be? Prison ain’t great, but the alternatives can really make you wish you’d just stayed put. As we wrap up, it’s time to pass the torch over to you, our curious readers.

Do you think the freedom these convicts sought was worth the cost? And what’s up with this dumpster trend? Is it the new Shawshank Redemption tunnel? Or should we just stick to making compost? 🗑️💭🌱
