Lem Tuggle – Breakout – Cassette UK Import on Ash International Records
In March 1984, sex men escaped from Virginia’s most secure prison. It remains the only mass escape from death row in US history.
This recording was made on death row by Lem D Tuggle with a pocket cassette recorder hidden in his cell. As a guard approached his cell, Lem had to stop recording, thus accounting for the few breaks in the sound.
The tape was removed from the cassette shell and smuggled out by letter. This is a copy of the original recording in its entirety.
Of the siex men who escaped, five have been executed. Only Lem survives…
