One of the inmates ended up dead and the second was shot and captured by an alert state trooper, but it looks like heads are rolling at the Clinton Correctional Facility, now that the 23-day hunt for two escaped prisoners has ended.
The New York State Department of Corrections is replacing 12 prison employees, including the prison’s superintendent Steven Racette and deputy superintendent Stephen Brown. Racette was seen in a photo with Gov. Andrew Cuomo on June 6, when the daring prison break was discovered.
The DOC sent a statement to PIX11 Investigates Tuesday announcing three members of Clinton’s executive team had been placed on administrative leave along with nine security staff employees “as part of the ongoing review associated with the June 6, 2015 escape from Clinton Correctional Facility.”
