KIRKSEY AND MILENTZ

Dennis Kirksey and Ray Milentz were two convicted murderers from St.Louis.
They were constantly making the news in the 1970s and 1980s because of their escapes.
That always puzzled me because both were labeled " High Risk " escape threats but were always sawing thru bars, coming up with handcuff keys or guns in prison. I can't find out whatever happened to them, I seem to recall one of them was involved in a car crash while escaping that killed another driver. There are newspaper archives on the internet about them but you have to subscribe in order to see them. If anyone can find any more info about them I would appreciate reading it.
