DNA Ties Escaped Killers to Cabin

June 22, 2015  | 

An army of law enforcement officers descended on a wooded area 30 miles west of Dannemora, N.Y., Sunday after police confirmed that DNA evidence removed from a hunting camp a day earlier was linked to two murderers on the lam, reports the New York Post.

The DNA showed that the two had been in the cabin as little as 24 hours earlier, CBS reported.

The discovery shifted the focus of the hunt for killers David Sweat and Richard Matt back to the area around the Clinton Correctional Facility, from which they escaped on June 6.

Someone checking on the camp in the tiny village of Owls Head had discovered it had been broken into, a source told The Post.

That person notified cops, who “removed some items” from the camp, the source said. And “forensic evidence” was found, according to the Buffalo News.

The person who went to the cabin found a jug of water and a jar of peanut butter on a table — and may have spotted a man running out the back, the Plattsburgh Press Republican reported.

Hopefully they are about to pounce on these two and then throw them in the hole for the duration of their time which should be when they are dead.

Nobody would be at risk and the taxpayers wouldn't be paying for this search if these two murderers would've been put to death after conviction.
Way to go New York.

Chuck, you have a very strong point. I agree with you on this one.
