The Shawshank Redemption: Fugitive Once Held in Prison Featured in Film Is Captured After 56 Years #HNNCrime


GAMEOVER AGENTS ARREST OHIO ESCAPEE AFTER 56 YEARS

The GAMEOVER Task Force has arrested a fugitive who escaped from an Ohio prison in 1959. 79-year-old Frank Freshwater was arrested yesterday at 1200 Jones Road, Melbourne, after information was received from the Cold Case Unit of the U.S. Marshal’s Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force in Ohio that Freshwater might be in the Brevard County area.

Freshwater was arrested on a Fugitive from Justice Warrant charging him with Escape. He was transported to the Brevard County Jail on a No Bond status, where he will await extradition back to the State of Ohio.


Freshwater was initially incarcerated at the Ohio State Reformatory (also known as the Shawshank State Prison) and later escaped from the Sandusky Ohio Honor Farm in 1959 after serving 7 months of a 20-year sentence for violating the terms of his probation in regards to a Manslaughter conviction. Living under the alias of William H. Cox, Freshwater had lived in several states, working as a truck driver, before settling in Brevard County.

A newly created U.S Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force in Ohio recently reopened the investigation into the whereabouts of Freshwater and uncovered evidence that he might be living in Brevard County. Members of the GAMEOVER Task Force continued the investigation, eventually locating and arresting Freshwater.

Another great job by the members of our GAMEOVER Task Force and our partnership with the U.S. Marshals.
