    Daily Courier-Observer

    DANNEMORA - A search is underway for two prisoners, both serving sentences for murder convictions, that were discovered missing early Saturday morning from Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora.

    New York State Police said they received a call at 5:45 a.m. Saturday from corrections’ officials reporting two prisoners were unaccounted for during a 5:30 a.m. bed check. State police are now currently searching for the two escaped prisoners.

    They are:
    Richard Matt, 48, a white male, 6’ tall, 210 pounds, with black hair and hazel eyes. He has tattoos on back “Mexico Forever”, a heart on his chest and left shoulder, and a marine corps insignia on his right shoulder.

    David Sweat, 34, white male, 5’11” tall, 165 pounds, brown hair and green eyes. He has tattoos on his left bicep and his right fingers
    NY Gov.: 2 Convicted Murderers Used Power Tools to Escape
    DANNEMORA, N.Y. — Jun 6, 2015, 4:50 PM ET
    ABC News/AP

    Two convicted murderers used power tools to cut through steel pipes at a maximum-security prison near the Canadian border and escape through a manhole, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Saturday.

    "It was an elaborate plot," Cuomo said after joining law enforcement authorities to retrace the prisoners' escape route from the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, N.Y.

    [...]
    "A search revealed that here was a hole cut out of the back of the cell through which these inmates escaped," Annucci said. "They went onto a catwalk which is about 6 stories high. We estimate they climbed down and had power tools and were able to get out to this facility through tunnels, cutting away at several spots."

    Massive Search For Escaped Inmates
    Two escaped from Clinton Correctional Facility
    UPDATED 6:26 PM EDT Jun 06, 2015

    DANNEMORA, N.Y. —New York State Police say they are searching for two inmates described as "dangerous" who escaped overnight from Clinton Correctional Facility.

    [...]
    The Governor calls the escape "extraordinary" and says it's the first time anyone has escaped from the maximum security portion of the facility since it opened in 1865.

    [...]
    State police have set up numerous roadblocks in the greater Dannemora area as they search for the escapees. WPTZ's Vanessa Misciagna reports armed troopers are searching every vehicle on Route 374 at a police checkpoint, and dozens of troopers and corrections officers are searching the woods off Smith Street.

    Anyone who sees people resembling the prisoners or with any information should call State Police at 563-3761.

    This case is going to be a big ole' black eye for somebody. They can only hope there will be a plea and no trial because his violent past will come out and people will scream that he wasn't locked up or deported long before this.
    Did you know that a certain population rules the DC prison.

    Do you think that the people he is going to be locked up with as stellar members of the community.

    The ruthless hands on criminals that have no problem strangling stabbing beating and killing a family of 4 will be feared in prison by a good majority. As long as they see you can hold your own then they will leave you be.

    Plus with the case notoriety; Some prisoners will feel that it is an honor to be in the same sector with him.

    Most of those guys are in for guns drugs rape murder via gun. But DW already displayed his savageness and prisoners know that he doesn't mind getting his hands dirty. He has a violent past as well.

    I know it sounds messed up but look at the mind set of most of them. Killers respect killers in their world.

    Jmo. He will be okay on jail.

    Who is defending her? (Besides her son.) Of course you can be weak and insecure and know the difference between right and wrong. One who can't distinguish between right and wrong is deemed unable to stand trial in the criminal court system. I don't see anyone here saying she meets that criteria.

    She's weak, insecure, gullible, easily influenced, etc etc etc. THAT is why she did this. Not for attention or to be notorious.

    “Whenever you talk to anybody who has ever worked at this prison, they always make the statement, ‘Nobody’s ever escaped from here,’ ” he says. “So I think a bit of complacency may have occurred.”

    While inmates at the prison do use power tools to perform various jobs, authorities strictly account for the devices.

    “They have a bunch of shops, industrial areas," he says. "When the inmates work there, they do use these tools, but at night they have a board where they hang all these tools and they make sure that every tool is back where it is supposed to be.”

    “I just happened to meet up with a lot of the retirees this morning at breakfast, and of course they are all saying, ‘Glad we aren’t there right now, because it is a difficult situation.’ ”

    IMO...I really don't think they would get too far on the Northway (87), if they knew what they were doing they would be better off heading south on Route 9, which parallels 87. No toll booths on route 9, but 87 you hit them in Albany.
    My opinion only.

    That would be assuming they have a vehicle.

    CNN anchor talked via telephone to someone who lives in the area where the search has intensified after reports of two men jumping a fence. Man on phone said neighbors/community are "disgusted" that Mitchell would put thousands of folks in danger by helping these hardened criminals escape

    There is always a ton of traffic on the Northway Fridays in the summer, The Adirondacks, Lake George, Saratoga Springs are all big tourist draws. They would have a tough time avoiding the police, and Route 9 is pretty busy too.

    I have noticed, aside from her son and daughter in law, we have not heard from a single friend of hers coming out and expressing shock, disbelief, etc. Got me curious, did she have any friends? Or, are they just keeping quiet? I wondered this from the standpoint of...maybe the inmates were the only 'friends' she had. Pure speculation on my part, and if I am wrong and friends of hers have come out and spoken one way or another about her, please feel free to correct me.

    Anyway...I don't know that there is any way for me to understand her psyche, nor is there really a need for me to do so. She will (more then likely) do her time.

    Had she been there to pick them up, I strongly believe the inmates would have killed her and carried on.

    Just my opinion.

    Here is a transcription of the video at link (not word for word, just what I felt were the most important points):

    Clinton County District Attorney Andrew Wylie told CNN that Joyce Mitchell "provided some form of equipment or tools" to fugitive felons Richard Matt and David Sweat. There is information that she did provide contraband to them. He will be able to give more details as to the exact contraband she provided to them soon. She continues to come in and cooperate and every day we are learning more as to her involvement with this. (Hence the reason she hasn't been arrested yet.) The charges she is facing include conspiracy to escape and providing contraband. She's aware that these charges will and can be filed against her and she continues to cooperate. (So she knows she's toast)

    Good point, I'm sure she has gotten quite the grilling and trying to save her rear end any way she can.
