The story of Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman, head of the Sinaloa Cartel, escaping jail is just insane. A mile long, ventilated and lit tunnel was built right under his shower in his prison cell to allow him to escape. Not only that, there was a little motorbike cart inside the tunnel as well to presumably give him a joy ride to freedom. Here is Gawker's video showing just what the tunnel looked like.
The security camera footage is also fascinating, we can see the moments that led to El Chapo disappearing. Read more of the crazy story at Gawker.
