Residents of the great state of Georgia are locking their doors at night once again, as a pair of violent prison escapees continue their reign of terror through the south.
A brazen and brutal prison escape has rocked the quiet towns of rural Georgia as two prisoners proceeded to murder two police officers before making off in a stolen vehicle, armed with one officer’s firearm. The duo have been on the run since Wednesday, and their last known whereabouts was a home in which they broke in, changed clothes, stole food, and escaped again.
Now, authorities are asking for any and all help that they can get with the trial growing colder by the hour. The reward for their capture has skyrocketed to becoming a 6 digit figure in the last 12 hours.
“Ricky Dubose, 24, and Donnie Russell Rowe, 43, inmates at the Baldwin State Prison in Milledgeville, overpowered and killed Sgt. Christopher Monica, 42, and Sgt. Curtis Billue, 58, on a bus that was carrying up to 33 inmates between prisons, according to investigators. The duo carjacked a driver who pulled up behind the bus and sped off in his green Honda Civic down state Highway 16 in Putnam County, southeast of Atlanta.
“The reward for information leading to their arrest has been increased to $115,000.
“Dubose’s family has pleaded for the inmate to turn himself in.
‘“He needs to stop (running),’ Rocky Dubose, Ricky’s father, told WSB. ‘Ricky please stop man. Brother, they gonna kill you, if you don’t give yourself up. I promise you.’”
Anyone with information concerning the whereabouts of these two men are urged to call 911 or their local FBI field office with information.
Both prisoners were jailed on serious offenses with a life sentence plus 20 years between them. They are considered armed and extremely dangerous, with authorities cautioning the general public not to approach or attempt the apprehend the subjects if spotted.
