Within a single day, I have heard three different stories about Kevin
Mitnick, does anyone know the real scoop?

The first one, he escaped using his social engineering skills.

The second one, he was found dead in his cell, where he probably hanged

The third one, he was indeed found dead in his cell, but there are
several clues that he was actually murdered by FBI officials.

I really hope, the first one is true.
