Deputy John Krebs took one last iPhone photo before boarding an early flight hoping to text it home to his wife.
“You pro or just taking pictures for fun?” laughed a well-built, tattooed man looking out the same window.
“Just tracking the journey, Tony, nothing more.”
In mid-flight, John reflected on Tony’s transfer to a minimum state prison and with good behavior, his opportunity for an early parole.
“Hey, I need to pee,” grinned Tony.
Undoing Tony’s handcuffs, John didn’t expect the fatal bullet from his own gun.
“You almost…freedom, Tony…why?”
“Just tracking my journey, John, nothing more,” snickered Tony.
