David Sweat and Richard Matt escaped from the prison in Dannemora in 2015. The two were on the run for three weeks in the North Country. Now, Sweat is in Auburn, NY.
David Sweat is the main focal point in the series “Escape at Dannemora”. Now, the New York Corrections Department moved Sweat further west. He’s now serving life in prison at Auburn Correctional Facility. That's just west of Syracuse.
“Escape at Dannemora is based on the headline-making true story of a 2015 prison break in upstate New York, which spawned a massive manhunt for two convicted murderers who were aided in their escape by a married female prison employee with whom they both became sexually entangled.”
I remember the summer this happened. You guys terrorized the North Country. I was born in Malone, NY. We have a camp up there. We weren’t allowed to go to camp the summer this happened. We had a funeral to attend that year and because of you we needed Police escorts. I’d like to come out to Auburn and just tell you off.
