Fugitives who killed prison guards caught in Tennessee

Fugitives who killed prison guards caught in Tennessee

The escaped inmates accused of killing two correctional officers have been captured, Gov.

The two convicted armed robbers, Donnie R. Rowe and Ricky Dubose, had been on the run since about 6:45am Tuesday, when their escape prompted a nationwide manhunt that drew a reward of US$130,000.

After their escapee, the fugitives stole first a Honda Civic and then a Ford F-250 pickup truck. Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills told the AJC that the inmates overtook the guards Tuesday in a transport bus. These are serious, unsafe hoodlums that need to be apprehended, ' Sills said.

David LeValley, FBI special agent in charge of the Atlanta office, said the manhunt had been expanded.

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

Sills said the resources committed to apprehending the two prisoners are also unprecedented. "We are looking for them anywhere they might be on planet Earth". He had served almost eight years for the department.

If you know anything about the whereabouts of Donnie Rowe and Ricky DuBose, they're asking you to call the U.S. Marshals at 877-WANTED 2.

Officials said Dubose, 24, is also a hardened criminal despite his relative youth, and a member of the notorious "Ghostface Gangsters" white supremacist group.

"I think they don't have much to fear because they've already killed two people, so they don't have any problem killing somebody else", Bailey told WSB.

"They have known each other for quite a while", Myrick said.

They escaped Tuesday after overpowering the guards on a Baldwin State Prison bus.

He said investigators believe Rowe and DuBose ransacked a home in Madison, Morgan County, Ga. around 10 or 11 a.m.

According to CNN, Sills said the truck was ditched in Moore County in Tennessee and the two apparently stole a vehicle, which they drove to a house in Bedford County.

"If somebody is helping them and we identify who they are, they will be prosecuted as parties to this crime", Sills said.

Both Rowe, 43, and Dubose were convicted of armed robbery and other violent crimes, and have been cellmates a few times in Georgia's prisons.

The authorities described them as "dangerous beyond description". "It's a shame two individuals would be so cowardly to do this", Dozier said. Monica had been with the Georgia Department of Corrections since October 2009 and Billue since July 2007.

Rowe is serving life without parole for armed robbery and Dubose is serving a 20-year sentence for armed robbery, according to the Georgia Department of Corrections.
