Prisoner Escapes Jail in Cardboard Box

Idle 7

Having given up on digging his way out with a spoon or launching himself with a giant catapult, Jean-Pierre Treiber, one of France's highest-profile prisoners, escaped by packing himself in a cardboard box. The box was loaded with many others on a truck for a 100 mile journey to to the Yonne region, southeast of Paris. Somewhere during the ride Treiber broke out of the box an made his escape. "We're searching the places where he used to hunt," said a policeman. "But he might well have fled further afield."

Guard: What was that noise!?
Guard walks over to investigate box. A large floating question mark appears over his head.
Guard: Just a box...
Guard walks off, resuming former patrol.

Or do what I did in the first Metal Gear Solid:

Snake: [creeps up to guard]
Snake: [throws guard over shoulder]
Snake: [hides]

Guard who got thrown: What was that!?.....
Guard who got thrown: [walks off, resuming patrol]

No noise (0)

The guy is a suspect in a double murder, but of course, suspect doesn't mean too much.

Apparently a pretty solid, simple character for years, none of his friends can believe he committed
the crimes, but more likely an unwitting accomplice of one FranÃois V., a smooth-talker who seems
to have conned JP into serious debt (his wife left him over it). Although quite how he came into
possession of the ATM cards (and codes) of the 2 murdered girls is unknown. Nor why he seemed
so unperturbed when the bodies were discovered in a well on his property.

He was well behaved in a quite old non-electronic-locked facility with a certain "over-population"
problem according to the French minister of justice. He had been placed in charge of the local workshop,
where he constructed his escape carton himself, and had it loaded with him in it onto a truck
leaving with other items. Another prisoner noticed he wasn't at lunch and remarked on it, but
no one did anything until hours later (probably dinner).

He's an ex-forest manager, meaning he can look after himself just fine in the bush, and he probably
won't go anywhere near his "own" well-known forest. He might never be heard of ever again, it's
not terribly difficult to disappear from sight in the French forests if you know what you're doing.
