June 5, 1960: Cheryl Crane and two other inmates escape from El Retiro School for Girls, where she had been committed for killing Johnny Stompanato.

"This was a big change from the meek and mild little girl who came in here on a homicide rap," Beverly Hills Police Chief Clinton H. Anderson says. "She's very defiant, antisocial and a nonconformist. It looks like she led the other girls out."
