Two Inmates Escape After Murdering Two Prison Guards

Two Inmates Escape After Murdering Two Prison Guards

He says an intense manhunt focused on Madison after two men fitting the description were seen entering a Family Dollar store there, less than a mile from a house that was burglarized. It turned up near a Madison, Ga. home where police say Dubose and Rowe dumped their prison whites and stole clothes. One of the inmates disarmed the officers, shooting Monica and Billue, before escaping. Many law enforcement officers from local, state and federal agencies are hunting for them.

Authorities in Georgia and across the country are searching for two escaped inmates who allegedly murdered two corrections officers in Putnam County during a transport Tuesday morning.

The reward for information leading to their arrest grew Wednesday to $90,000, contributed by multiple agencies, Sills said.

"The selflessness and courage of these two courageous souls will not be forgotten, nor will their sacrifice and service", Deal said in an emailed statement.

"They are risky beyond description", Sills told reporters Tuesday.

Georgia is now investigating how two risky prisoners were able to overpower the guards.

The sheriff was emotional as he recalled what he saw when he arrived at the site where the two officers were shot to death.

During the last several hours since the daring daylight escape of Donnie Russell Rowe, 43, and Ricky Dubose, 24, there have been several new developments in the manhunt, Sills said. Billue, a 10-year employee, is survived by his father, brother and sister, Dozier said. Sills told reporters he believed they had left the county, and that the search had extended to "everywhere in America".

Dozier said the inmates were being moved from a state prison in Hancock County to a diagnostic center in Jackson to determine their next placement. "They murdered two correctional officers", he said. He appears to have a crown tattooed above his right eyebrow and writing above his left eyebrow and on his neck. Both are believed to be armed and unsafe.

The Noxubee County Sheriff's Department says it has investigated a reported sighting of two Georgia escapees.

"They're risky criminals, and we need the public's help in locating these vehicles and these individuals", Sills said.

After the shooting, the two are accused of carjacking a man and stealing his light green 2004 Honda civic.

Authorities may have no shortage of witnesses to the killing of two guards on a prison bus in Georgia.

Sheriff Howard Sills said both inmates are now armed with the officers'.40 caliber Glock pistols.




Authorities aren't saying which of the escaped inmates did the killing.

Sheriff Sills asked anyone who has any information about the fugitives to call 911.

It happened at about 5 a.m.

The inmates have been cellmates a few times in Georgia's prisons, had known each other for "quite a while" and may have planned the escape together, Department of Corrections Assistant Commissioner Ricky Myrick said.

The corrections officers killed have been identified as 42-year-old Christopher Monica and 58-year-old Curtis Billue.

Donnie Rowe, the older of the two escaped prisoners, has the more violent history.

The U.S. deputy attorney general has condemned the slayings of two Georgia prison guards during testimony before a Senate budget panel.

"An attack on any American law enforcement officer is an attack on every American law enforcement officer and the principles we all believe in", he said. CORRECTS SOURCE TO GEORGIA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS IN SIGNOFF- This undated photo released by the Georgia Department of Corrections Tuesday, June 13, 2017, shows inmate Ricky Dubose.

Rosenstein said federal resources are being committed to help catch the fugitives.

Sills said his biggest concern is that the inmates are going to kill somebody else.

In a Wednesday afternoon press conference, Sills said it was taken sometime between 6 p.m. Tuesday and 6 a.m. Wednesday when the business reopened. He was convicted of armed robbery, possession of a firearm during a crime and aggravated assault in Bibb County in October 2001, according to Georgia Department of Corrections records.

The Noxubee County Sheriff's Office began receiving the reports early Wednesday morning.

The sheriff of Oconee County took to Facebook to ask the inmates to surrender and threaten them that the police would find them wherever they go.
