One of the convicted murderers who escaped from New York’s largest prison more than two weeks ago — Richard Matt — has been reportedly shot and killed by police.
There were initial reports that Sweat was cornered in the woods near Malone, New York but at a press conference Friday evening, Gov. Andrew Cuomo revealed authorities could not locate Sweat.
“There are several leads being tracked down as we speak about Mr. Sweat and his possible whereabouts but we don’t have anything to confirm where Mr. Sweat is at this time,” Cuomo said.
