Woman Arrested in California Believed to Have Escaped Michigan Prison Nearly 40-Years Ago

Michigan Department of Corrections

Maybe she is, maybe she isn’t an inmate that managed to escape from a Michigan prison nearly forty-years ago. On thing is for certain… she isn’t admitting it.

According to reports, authorities arrested a woman in California earlier this week, who they suspect is the same woman that escaped from the Women’s Huron Valley Correctional Facility in Michigan 37-years ago.

Authorities say they captured Judy Lynn Hayman, who is now 60-years-old, on Monday afternoon. Police were called out to investigate Hayman after a Michigan Corrections Department officer discovered the fingerprints of a women living in San Diego matched the fugitive.

Although Hayman refused to admit that she was in fact the escapee police have been tracking for nearly four decades, she eventually revealed her true identity to investigators. However, she is scheduled to appear at an extradition hearing on Thursday to see if she will admit to being the same Hayman wanted in Michigan.

Prison records show that Hayman was convicted in 1976 of larceny and sentenced between 16 months and two years in a state penitentiary. After spending ten months inside, she escaped and was not seen or heard from again until the time of her arrest this week.
