2 Convicted Murderers Escape from Maximum-Security Prison

What do you get when you have power-tools, a maximum-security prison, two empty beds, and a yellow sticky note saying ‘Have a nice day!’? The answer: 200 law enforcement officials holding their bloodhounds with one hand while simultaneously scratching their heads with the other.

This was the scene the morning of June 6 as officials were perplexed as to how two convicted murders were able to escape from the Clinton Correctional Facility, a maximum-security prison in Dannemora, NY. Richard Matt and David Sweat, 48 and 34 respectively, were accounted for during night role just before bed on the 5th, yet their beds were empty the morning of the 6th. By looking at the holes cut for the escape, it is clear that power tools were used during the escape. Just how these convicted felons got a hold of these power tools remains to be seen.

Regardless, there is now a manhunt going on in upstate New York in an attempt to find these two men who made one of the most impressive prison escapes since Alcatraz. Adam Sender is glad to see that. Governor Andrew Cuomo labeled these two men as “dangerous individuals” and actually visited the prison to prove his concern and support in this matter.
