Gov. Cuomo: The Prisoners Are Going To Be More Desperate Than Ever

June 10, 2015



WILSBORO, NY – Governor Andrew Cuomo, State Police and other officials held a press conference in the 3pm hour this afternoon, updating reporters about the search for Richard Matt and David Sweat, the two escaped prisoners who broke out of Clinton Correctional Facility on Saturday, June 6.

The governor began by thanking all the law enforcement, State Police, the local police and sheriff’s departments in the Willsboro area (where the search is now going on, as of this posting) as well as Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin.

“We need to find these escapees,” Gov. Cuomo stated. “They are dangerous men. They are killers, they are murderers, there’s no reason to believe they wouldn’t do it again. They’re going to be more desperate than ever.”
