But Andy feels that that the detail of his wife's lover being a "golfing pro" is too specific to be coincidence.

He also believes he remembers a man matching Tommy's description of Blatch, working at the marina of the country club - where the golf pro worked, and which he and his wife had otherwise frequented - who quit or was fired around the time of the murders. Upon hearing Tommy's story, Andy realizes that this evidence could possibly result in a new trial and a chance at freedom.

Norton scoffs at the story, however, dismissing it as an attempt by Tommy to cheer Andy up. When Andy accuses him of being deliberately obtuse, the warden has him placed in solitary confinement for 20 days, with only bread and water. By the time Andy is released from solitary and the warden agrees to meet with him again, Norton has had Tommy moved to a minimum-security prison with enough privileges to keep him from speaking about what he knows, and Norton implies to Andy that he used his connections get Blatch released onto a parole program, from which Blatch has since disappeared, making it nearly impossible for Andy to hire a lawyer and pursue a new trial.

Andy assumes his actions are based on Norton being afraid Andy would speak about their illegal activities if he got out, but the warden claims that his real motivation is to teach Andy humility. When Andy threatens to cease all his money laundering and other bookkeeping activities, Norton threatens to put him back into solitary for another 30 days, take away all his protections and privileges, and do away with the library. Andy concedes and things resume as they were before Tommy's revelation, though Red notes that Andy's demeanor becomes dark for the next four years.

This alias, Peter Stevens, has a driver's license, Social Security card, and other credentials. The documents required to claim Stevens' assets and assume his identity are in a safety deposit box in a Portland bank; the key to the box is hidden under a rock along a wall lining a hay field in the small town of Buxton , not far from Shawshank.

In October of , after 20 years in prison together, Andy shares the information with Red; describing exactly how to find the place and how one day "Peter Stevens" will own a small seaside resort hotel in Zihuatanejo , Mexico.

On the morning of March 12th, , after he has been incarcerated for 28 years, Andy disappears from his locked cell.

After searching the prison grounds and surrounding area without finding any sign of him, Norton looks in Andy's cell and discovers that the current poster pasted to his wall Linda Ronstadt covers a man-sized hole - Andy had used his rock hammer not just to shape rocks, but also to slowly chip away at the wall. Once through the wall, he broke into a sewage pipe, crawled through it, emerged into a stream yards beyond the prison's outer perimeter, and vanished.

His footprints were found near the creek he emerged into, and a day later his prison uniform was found two miles away. Norton resigns in disgrace shorty afterwards.
