Crazy: 2 Inmates Escape Prison After Killing 2 Guards
Georgia police have began conducting a manhunt for two escaped inmates fled from a transport bus after murdering two guards.
Inmates Donnie Russell Rowe, 43, and Ricky Dubose, 24, were reportedly being transported with 31 other inmates to Georgia Diagnostic and Classification State Prison on Tuesday morning when they made their escape. In a press conference, Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills said the prisoners managed to get out of the bus cage and into the driver’s compartment.
Rowe and Dubose then managed to overpower two Baldwin State Prison transfer sergeants, taking their guns and fatally shooting them, according to Sills.
“I saw two brutally murdered corrections officers,” Sills said at a press conference. “I have their blood on my shoes.”The inmates then escaped in a carjacked 2004 green four-door Honda
Civic with Georgia license plate RBJ6601, authorities said in a press release. Officials believe the men are armed and dangerous and say that no other inmates attempted to flee.
The victims were officers Christopher Monica and Curtis Billue, authorities said. Monica, 42, began working for the Department of Corrections in 2009 and was promoted to sergeant in 2012. Billue, 58, joined the department in 2007 and accepted a position as a transporter in 2013.
“Both officers were known for their unwavering commitment to their job and their love of family,” DOC Commissioner Gregory Dozier said in a statement. Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal (R) has vowed to apprehend the convicts. -(Huffington Post)
