    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."

    Search for escaped convicted killers, David Sweat & Richard Matt, Dannemora #8

    David Sweat shot and captured alive after New York manhunt
    Sun June 28, 2015



    Malone, New York (CNN)A massive, more-than-three-week manhunt for David Sweat ended Sunday as it began, with the escaped murderer in custody.

    A New York State Police sergeant on roving patrol saw Sweat, and after Sweat ran, the sergeant shot him, according to a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation. It did not appear Sweat was armed, the official said.

    A photo exclusively obtained by CNN shows Sweat in custody moments after his capture. The photograph shows him bloodied and wearing a camouflage outfit -- not prison garb.

    Who was the one to call off the cell (prison cel that is) search requested days before the actual break??? Was it the Warden or someone below him or someone above him..Either way...The lack of cell search at THAT TIME means these two "Special Felon's" were allowed to continue with their missions...No way was it a secret within the system!! Will never believe that for one second!!

    Where's the Warden..What does Palmer have to say now..SOOOO many questions!!

    As for does Sweat even know about Matt's death?? OF course he does..he was no doubt aware Matt was Drunk shooting off his shotgun..and took exit stage right..ASAP...Matt was employing and no help anymore!!

    I also heard that Sweat was from this area of NY..so knew full well the back roads..rural area's..Can anybody expound on that? TYIA

    Good thing he is serving a life sentence.

    CNN just reporting that Sweat was captured near where a serial killer once lived (511 Poplar) They probably got that information from this site.

    Note ... Just now on CNN. At 7:57...is the first time I heard them say that this address was closely related to someone else.. They went to a commercial break but they have not mentioned the name Israel Keyes... I think they just got the connection

    brought over from closed thread..got caught between

    Thankyou..So it is apparent this guy had informations that allowed him to gain access to clothing ( swat gear)..shelter and access to personal hygiene items ( shaver's) then of course gaining access to firearm/tools ( knives) and apparels to endure such a 3 week escape in total environmental "Hellhole" which no one could endure for days let alone weeks without knowledge/help !!!! These guys were not of the type who could endure such terrible environment insults without HELP...Survival they did..Survivalist's THEY WERE NOT..
