Escape Aftermath: We’re learning more about the prison escape last month at Clinton Correctional Facility that led to one of the largest manhunts in New York state history. A report in the New York Times offers new insight into how convicted killers David Sweat and Richard Matt spent months scouting out an escape route in the tunnels beneath the Dannemora prison, and then weeks digging and cutting their way out.
