2 murder convicts escape prison, NY state offers $100,000 reward for capture of the escaped prisoners

The U.S.
Marshals Service issued federal arrest warrants Sunday for two convicted
killers who escaped from a maximum security prison in upstate New York
over the weekend.

The warrants charge Richard Matt and
David Sweat with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution, according to
William O’Toole, a U.S. Marshals Service spokesman. The warrants clear
the way for the federal government to involve its considerable resources
in the manhunt.

Matt, 49, and Sweat, 35, who were both
serving life sentences for vicious murders, emerged through a manhole
cover 200 metres from the prison walls and made off into the night.
The pair were discovered missing from their cells Saturday morning
during a “standing count” of inmates at the Clinton Correctional
Facility in Dannemora, New York, state police said.

Using power tools smuggled into the
jail, the pair cut holes in the steel walls of their cells, before
following a series of pipes and tunnels under the 10-metre-high walls of
the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, New York state.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced a $100,000 reward for information leading to the pair’s capture.
Maj. Charles Guess of the New York State Police said Sunday.

“We’re leaving no stone unturned, all available assets are being brought to bear.”
