Inmate 1708: Matthew Lane

Quiet, polite and agreeable, Matty never poses any trouble for the guards of Coldford Correctional. He is always where he needs to be and when. Not that he has much choice in that matter. He is a nice guy. Murder of his wife aside of course.

Inmate 1204: Wayne Grundy

They call him the Bamber Bear killer and he is caged in Coldford Correctional for the massacre that happened at the restaurant for little tykes. He maintains that he is innocent. Is anyone really innocent behind the walls of The Boss?
