Gonzolo Martinez story on I (Almost) Got Away With It: Close but no cigar
Not actually Gonzolo Martinez, but an incredible simulation.
Tonight's episode of the Discovery Channel program I (Almost) Got Away With It, airing locally at 8 p.m., has a distinctly Denver flavor.
The show tells the tale of local-boy-made-bad Gonzolo Martinez, who was sentenced to almost half a century in prison for a shooting at a party only to escape from an Arkansas Valley lock-up and escape to Mexico, where, according to Discovery PR, "he became a successful drug dealer and border kingpin." After three years on the lam, however, he was recaptured. So where will he be enjoying his few minutes of fame? Supermax in Canon City. Congrats!
