The entire escape from the Ionia Correctional Facility took less than an hour Sunday night.

WOOD TV finds court documents that say four time convicted killer Michael Elliot needed 53 minutes to cross the prison grounds and crawl under a fence in the garage "sally port".

All of it was recorded on surveillance video that the TV station says should have been watched by guards on their monitors, but apparently nobody saw any of it happen.

Escapee Michael Elliot is still in Indiana; after being recaptured Monday night he is fighting extradition.
