A girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do, and in the case of Dwight Worker, he simply had to be a girl. His escape method required lipstick, a wig, and temporary breast and butt implants.
Shake that rump, if that’s what it takes to escape the Black Palace Of Mexico. If you thought Clint Eastwood’s escape from Alcatraz was impressive, check out this guy’s scheme.
After attempting to smuggle cocaine into the U.S. from Mexico City in 1973, Worker was arrested and sent to Lecumberri Prison for 2 years. He was held in the prison on charges of drug possession. The only known escapee of this prison was Pancho Villa. Ay yi yi !
National Geographic premiered “Locked Up Abroad” on May 23, which featured Worker’s tumultuous escape story.

Upon cross dressing to escape one of the most infamously notorious prisons in Mexico, Worker even fell in love with a woman who was visiting another prisoner. Moral of the story, dress in drag and risk your life, if you want a honey by your side.
What a happy ending.
