  3. Lyle Mitchell:

    On June 5, 2015, Inmate Matt told me it was the day he and Inmate Sweat were breaking out of the facility. I know I had agreed to help them escape and run away with them, but I panicked and couldn't follow through with the rest of the plan. I really do love my husband and he's the reason I didn't meet Inmate Matt and Inmate Sweat, i didn't want anything to happen to Lyle and I couldn't imagine being without him. I believe I helped Inmate Matt and Inmate Sweat escape because I was caught up in the fantasy. I enjoyed the attention, the feeling both of them gave me, and the thought of a different life.

  5. Oklahoma Attorney General John O'Connor:

    Midazolam, as The State has repeatedly shown,' can be relied upon... to render the inmate insensate to pain,'.
