On June 6, Clinton Correctional Facility employees discovered that two convicted killers Richard Matt,49, and David Sweat,35, had escaped the prison leaving behind stuffed beds as decoys. The two were assumed to be armed with stolen weapons.

The men used smuggled hacksaw blades and a screwdriver bit to break through the steel walls in their neighboring cells, slipped through a steam pipe and fled through a manhole outside the walls of the maximum-security prison, about 20 miles from the Canadian border. The tools allegedly were hidden in frozen meat by Joyce Mitchell, 51, who worked in the prison’s tailor shop and is charged with aiding in the escape of the inmates, who were allowed to cook their own meals, said Clinton County District Attorney Andrew Wylie.
