Aída Victoria Merlano, 21, was able to execute her daring plan to help former politician Aída Merlano Rebolledo escape from a Bogotá prison by lifting a hidden rope and a bicycle to escape her. Prosecutors heard during a trial this week how the Colombian influencer helped her mother climb through a dentist’s third-floor window using a rope to reach the ground. In July, MEAWW reported how inmate David Mordukhaev was captured 12 hours after escaping from the Bronx barge jail. And in January, we reported how Arizona inmates John Charpiot and David Harmon were captured after escaping from prison.
Senator Rebodello was sentenced in 2019 after being convicted of electoral fraud, corruption and illegal possession of weapons. The then 38-year-old was given 15 years within six months of his election victory, but escaped from prison only two weeks later. While his daughter was also charged at the time, he has remained free on bail and continues to post racy snaps and short parodies with her 2.5 million followers on Instagram.
The mother-daughter duo is said to have hatched the plan when Rebodello was granted jail leave to attend a dental appointment. She was accompanied by a prison guard and a driver to the dentist’s clinic outside the prison, but she was allowed to enter the office alone. It was later learned in court that the offender was left alone in the exam room, during which she executed the escape plan while her daughter chatted with the security guard in an attempt to distract him.
In video footage obtained by El Tiempo, Rebodello was seen climbing down from the window with a red string before falling to the ground in front of shocked passersby. She then got on the back of a bicycle driven by a man posing as a delivery driver and fled the scene. Meanwhile, Merlano took advantage of the situation as the apparent prison break made the news. She appeared on the cover of a magazine posing naked and handcuffed with the slogan “The daughter of the fugitive congressman confesses.”
Rebolledo was finally arrested in Venezuela a couple of months later, in January 2020. Her daughter and the dentist, Javier Cely Barajas, were officially charged as accomplices in the escape after authorities suspected their involvement. While both pleaded not guilty during a trial this week, they face years behind bars if convicted.
Despite her ordeal, Merlano continues to interact with her fans on social media. “Despite getting up every day knowing that I can go to jail for 21 years, I am happy because I have the conviction that happiness is a decision that one makes every day,” said the Instagram model in a video publication, adding: “Be happy today because you don’t know what will happen tomorrow.
