DULUTH, MINNESOTA - It ranks #4 on the Top 10 List of Luxury Federal Prisons. While most inmates are happy not to rock the luxury boat, two prisoners escaped on Saturday and have not been seen since.

Michael Krzyzaniak, serving a 12-year sentence for a 25 million fraud scheme involving a Desert Hot Springs project known as Palmwood simply tap danced away from the unfenced facility.

The Duluth Prison Camp boasts an impressive supply of musical instruments, including a piano, drums and acoustic guitars. The camp offers a gym, movie theater, private sleeping quarters resembling a college dorm room and food service that includes a salad bar. Fresh hot cinnamon rolls are served at breakfast.

Unauthorized trips to the local liquor store or a clandestine conjugal visit to a nearby motel are ways to pass the time. Department of Prisons rules prohibit guards from chasing convicts. (from An Inappropriate Life – What I Did on my Summer Vacation by Morris Gotlieb)

The 30-year-old all-male camp houses about 840 inmates on the former Duluth Air Force Base located about 7 miles north of the city according to the Bureau of Prisons.

It appeared that Krzyzaniak spent most of the millions he took from investors, including golf pro Phil Mickelson. Krzyzaniak claimed at his April 2011 appearance that he owned no stocks and bonds, had only a few hundred dollars in the bank and drove a 2004 Silverado truck with a loan against it. An estate sale from his Minnetrista home netted just $4,000.

The Palmwood development in Desert Hot Springs was a favorite project of then council member [now mayor] Yvonne Parks. As a result of the projects endorsement by Yvonne Parks the city incurred expenses of over $100,000, while costs for the Coachella Valley Association of Governments exceeded $1 million for the Palmwood project.

Krzyzaniakis described as white, 6 feet tall and 200 pounds, with graying brown hair and hazel eyes. Greenfield is white, 5 feet 9 inches tall, 150 pounds, with graying blond hair and blue eyes.

Escaping with Krzyzaniak was Gerald Greenfield, of Bloomington who had a projected release date of Nov. 2, 2015, from his more than four-year sentence for conspiracy to commit money laundering with a $2.5 million mortgage fraud scheme.

Anyone with information about either escapee is encouraged to contact the U.S. Marshals Service at 1-218-720-3214 or call 911.
