Da Siva attempted to leave the facility through the front door, dressed up as his teenage daughter. He wore a wig, a mask, glasses, and women’s clothes, including a bra. Da Silva put on the clothes of his daughter, who was visiting him at the time and planned to leave her behind in his cell. Prison agents became suspicious over the disguised figure and prevented the escape. His daughter and seven other visitors were taking to a police station on suspicion of helping a prisoner escape.
