Binghamton Cop Killer David Sweat Escapes From Not So Super Max Clinton Correctional Prison in Dannemora NY, What The Hell?
(L) David Sweat; (R) Richard Matt.
UPDATE: Cops think that escaped murderers David Sweat, 34, and Richard Matt, 48 might have left NY State and headed to nearby Vermont. Last supposed sighting of these two dirtbags was in Willsboro, N.Y. near the Vermont border. Though investigators have reason to believe the men may have entered Vermont, the manhunt is still on in New York. Police were searching homes in Dannemora and Willsboro, N.Y., where authorities received a tip that the men may have been spotted. My guess is that they might be headed for the Bennington VT area, lot of like minded ex-cons in Bennington VT.

(WBNG Binghamton) New York State Police are on the hunt for two convicted killers who escaped from prison in Clinton County. One of the men, David Sweat, gunned down a Broome County Sheriff's deputy in 2002. David Sweat, 34, and Richard Matt, 48, are both considered to be a danger to the public. Sweat is described as a white male, 5 feet 11 inches tall, 165 pounds, with brown hair and green eyes. He has tattoos on his left bicep and his right fingers. Sweat pleaded guilty to murder in the first degree after shooting and killing Deputy Sheriff Kevin J. Tarsia in Kirkwood NY on July 4, 2002.
The Shawshank Redemption Redux: “A search revealed that here was a hole cut out of the back of the cell through which these inmates escaped,” Annucci said. “They went onto a catwalk which is about 6 stories high. We estimate they climbed down and had power tools and were able to get out to this facility through tunnels, cutting away at several spots.”
July 8th, 2002.....TOWN OF CHENANGO, N.Y. -- Three men were arrested Saturday in connection with Thursday's shooting death of Broome County sheriff's Deputy Kevin J. Tarsia. Jeffrey A. Nabinger Jr. and David Sweat, both 22, were charged with first-degree murder, a felony. Shawn J. Devaul, 23, was charged with third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a felony. Nabinger and Sweat shot Tarsia 15 times around 4 a.m., Broome Sheriff David E. Harder said. Devaul was "a non-active participant in the murder" as he watched the shooting armed with a gun, Harder said. Tarsia, 36, was shot, then run over by a car in Grange Hall Park in Kirkwood, Harder said. Police developed information that led them to Nabinger, Sweat and Devaul from a source who learned about the shooting, Harder said. The sheriff declined to elaborate on who contacted police or what information that person provided.
NOT SO SUPER MAX: Clinton Correctional Facility prison is sometimes referred to as "New York's Siberia" due to the cold climate in Dannemora and the isolation of the area. It is the largest maximum security prison and the third oldest prison in New York.
