Prison Walls And Security System Was Insufficient To Keep Inmates In

Prison Walls And Security System Was Insufficient To Keep Inmates In

The hole that had been cut through the prison cell wall was done with professional accuracy. Sweat and Matt either had professional help at hand, or were themselves skilled at the trade. The two prisoners emerged through the hole in the wall, found their way through a steam pipe before they jumped out of a manhole into the  street before the prison.

In the wake of the captive on the run, schools were closed down for the day, while all residents were intimated through automated calls to keep their doors locked. Everyone was advised to bar and close all windows in their houses, besides letting the lights on the house's exteriors on. Dogs and helicopters were deployed by the police in the manhunt for the fugitives on the run.

Richard Matt, 48, and David Sweat, 34, were the two prisoners who had fled from  Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora quite near the Canadian border. 

Matt was serving 25 years to a life term for his alleged involvement in the kidnap, torture and cheating of his employer in 1997.Sweat was found to be involved in killing Sheiff's Deputy Kevin Tarsia. The latter caught Sweat with two of his friends dealing in stolen guns.

The latest development in the case came when a couple of footprints were found at a gas station in the vicinity of the location of their confinement. Blood hounds were brought into the picture to confirm the fugitives’ footprints on the grounds near the gas station.

The escape of the inmates is believed to have been aided by some of the prison authorities. Those involved in the escape are to be severely dealt with.
