    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[HR][/HR]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."

    I noticed some stuff that didn't make sense regarding the path the guys would've made to get from Dannemora to Lindley to Friendship so I will go ahead and re-post this map that shows the likely path, which of course presumes they're riding the rails on freight trains as often as possible:

    There is no doubling back IMO AFAIK.

    Source: New York escapee Richard Matt killed; David Sweat being pursued
    Malone, New York (CNN)Richard Matt, one of two escaped murderers from an upstate New York maximum-security prison, was shot and killed by officers involved in a massive three-week manhunt, three law enforcement sources said Friday.

    Officers are still pursuing fugitive David Sweat but appeared to be closing in on him Friday night, a law enforcement official told CNN.

    The violent development in the 21-day manhunt began around 1:30 p.m. when police received a call of shots fired near Route 30 in the vicinity of Malone, New York, according to law enforcement officials briefed on the matter. About 20 minutes later, more gunshots were heard.

    TWCNews (local station) Live: at the presser:

    Cuomo speaking: Thank you good evening to all of you I want to thank NY state police, dept of corrections, DEC, FBI, US Marshalls, US customs and border patrol. VT police, DAs, Sheriffs, Platsburgh city police, Malone police, St Regis Mohawk Tribal police.

    This afternoon there was a civillian complaint in Town of Duane, a gunshot at a camping trailer, state police investigated, came upon a cabin, smelled gunpowder, LE partners were then notifed and customs and border patrol tactical team helicoptered in and approached the site, they came upon Matt, engaged Matt who was armed and Matt was shot and killed.

    We have no reason to believe Sweat was NOT with Matt at the time but we do not have any confirming evidence that he was either. There are several leads that are being tracked down as we speak about his possible whereabouts but we have nothing to confirm where Sweat is at this time.

    I want to thank the residents of these counties, we've had over 2300 leads... etc.. thanking LE..

    (IMO he's lying again, they know where he is and he's gonna be dead soon JMO.)

    D'Amico - (These are answers to questions I can't hear)

    we'll be taking statements from the team who were involved in the shooting, I can tell you they verbally challeneged him told him to put up his hands and he did not comply, no there were no shots fired BY Matt.

    Yes we recovered evidence from the burglary almost a week ago that indicated they were together, yes.

    We didn't recover evidence of Sweat in the town of Malone on Wednesday, not saying he wasn't there jusut dind't recover evidence.

    We've always assumed they were armed and dangerous, had access to cabins and lean tos and other hunting structures, last week we did believe a 20 gage shotgun was taken and it was the weapon or a weapon similar to hte one we recovered from Matt tonight.

    There's no factual evidence that either of htem was heading to Canada, we're looking at the path they're taking, they were heading north, at no point did we have definite evidence they were heading to Canada, from the start RCMP etc have been ready (missed the wording)

    Our preference would always be to capture them alive.

    We will continue the same tactics we've employed the past 3 weeks which is search 24 hours a day until we find them.

    The area of Duane and Malone is where we have been searching recently but again we ask everyone to remain vigilant everywhere.

    I can only say that a tactical team from the US customs and border protection engaged Matt and he was shot by one of his members. the location is off state route 30 in the southern part of Malone where it borders Duane.

    NO! He just said that they had definite evidence that they were together last Saturday in the first cabin, but the more recent evidence was just Matt.

    Sweat could be anywhere.
