Default Inmate planned to escape prison in box, buried in sawdust

AUBURN, N.Y. (AP) - An inmate at a maximum-security prison claimed he repeatedly practiced a daring escape plan involving a coffin-like box hidden under tons of sawdust and that guards never noticed what he was up to.
Gordon "Woody" Mower, who is serving a life sentence without parole for killing his parents two decades ago, told The Post-Standard of Syracuse (Inmate practiced escaping Auburn prison in coffin buried under sawdust | syracuse.com) that he practiced escaping Auburn Correctional Facility 50 times before guards discovered his plan in April 2015 - two months before two convicted killers cut their way out of a different maximum-security prison in upstate New York.

Mower said his plan involved being buried alive in a bottomless 3-foot by 4-foot wooden box under a big mound of sawdust produced by the prison's woodworking shop, where furniture is made. The sawdust is hauled away regularly in a tractor-trailer by a local farmer who uses it as horse bedding. Mower said the plot failed when another inmate tipped off guards.
