Two Georgia inmates remain on run after two prison guards killed
Throughout the scorching U.S. south, cops are hunting a pair of killer convicts considered “dangerous beyond description.”
So far, the two Georgia jailbirds who murdered two Baldwin State prison guards and escaped from a correctional bus have stayed one step ahead of the authorities.
Sgt. Christopher Monica and Sgt. Curtis Billue were both shot to death.
The pair stole a second vehicle near the massive Oconee National Forest late Tuesday or early Wednesday.
Donnie Russell Rowe, serving life without parole, and Ricky Dubose, who has prominent tattoos on his face and neck, stole a white pickup truck from an industrial site.
Cops say the theft may have enabled them to flee the state.
“They just murdered two corrections officers in a brutal fashion,” Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills said. “They’re not concerned with anything regarding human life.”
The pair are violent repeat offenders and are armed with the dead guards’ .9 mm handguns.
Following the murders, the duo carjacked a driver on a remote highway, fleeing in his green 2003 Honda Civic.
After ransacking a house and stealing food and clothes, the pair waited to make their next move.
Roadblocks have proven fruitless. It’s unknown whether the escapees are even still together.
Of the two, the tattooed Dubose will be easiest to find. He has crowns inked above his eyebrows, a star below his right ear and graffiti-style letters all across his neck. He has a ghost tattooed on his right forefinger — signs of membership in the Ghost Face Gangsters.
Rowe has been serving life without parole since 2002, and Dubose began a 20-year sentence in 2015. The two have shared cells and know each other well.
But questions remain: How did the pair get from the inmate’s area through a locked door on the bus?
