Escape at Dannemora

In 2015, two inmates managed to escape the Clinton Correctional Facility despite heavy security. Richard Matt and David Sweat were arrested and convicted of murder and escaped the facility to avoid their sentences. The escape sparked curiosity, and two of the Dannemora employees were questioned for aiding the two inmates escape.

Joyce Mitchell and Gene Palmer were charged with the successful escape of the inmates, and a nationwide manhunt began. On June 26, 2015, 20 days after the Dannemora escape, Richard Matt was tracked down and shot by Vermont border patrol agent in the New York town of Malone.

Two days later, David Sweat was also found and shot by a New York State Trooper. Sweat did not die from his wounds and was captured by law enforcement agencies. The escape was adapted to a TV series called Escape at Dannemora that premiered on the Showtime network on November 18, 2018. The series, that was directed by Ben Stiller, outlined the escape of Richard Matt and David Sweat who are portrayed by Benicio del Toro and Paul Dano.
