Sheriff: Men seen in SC were likely not escaped Ga. inmates

Donnie Russell Rowe Ricky Dubose

The Muscogee County Sheriff's Office and other law enforcement agencies have been alerted about two Georgia inmates who escaped Tuesday in Putnam County after overpowering and killing two guards.

A nationwide manhunt had intensified for the inmates - Donnie Russell Rowe and Ricky Dubose - who had been armed and on the run since Tuesday, officials said.

Dubose and Rowe hijacked a Honda Civic that was recovered Wednesday afternoon in a wooded area off US 441, not far from a burglary where the men changed out of their prison uniforms and ransacked a house.

Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills said the inmates fled from the bus near Eatonton, about 70 miles southeast of Atlanta. These are serious, unsafe hoodlums that need to be apprehended, ' Sills said.

On Thursday, Special Agent David LeValley, head of the FBI's Atlanta office, announced the start of a billboard campaign urging the public to help find the fugitives, and acknowledged that the hunt is no longer limited to Georgia, but now national.

The prisoners then carjacked a passing 2004 Honda Civic and headed east on Georgia Highway 16.

'This black stripe, it's been on this badge more in the a year ago than ever before, ' Sheriff Sills said Thursday, fighting back tears.

Sills said it was hard to determine if the two men were being helped by anyone on the outside but said there were an infinite number of possibilities since both men have friends and family in the area. "We are looking for them anywhere they might be on planet Earth". Billue, 58, a 10-year employee, is survived by his father, brother and sister, Georgia Department of Corrections Commissioner Greg Dozier said.

That vehicle was spotted by law enforcement officers who chased Rowe and Dubose and captured them after they crashed and ran from the wreck.

The more complicated our system gets, and the fewer guarantees we can make about its integrity, the worse this dilemma becomes. He removed the classified material and then he handed it to online news report which hampered the secrecy of the organization.

Officials said Dubose, 24, is also a hardened criminal despite his relative youth, and a member of the notorious "Ghostface Gangsters" white supremacist group. When officers approached them, they surrendered and were taken into custody.

"They brutally shot those officers multiple times", Sills said.

She said both men were taken into custody in Christiana, Tennessee.

Late Tuesday night, about 12 hours after the home burglary, the pair stole a Ford pickup truck from a rock quarry about 9 miles (14.5 kilometers) from the burglarized home.

Baldwin State Prison inmates were being transferred to another facility when two of them apparently got through a barrier in the transport bus, overpowered the guards and got a gun.

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

The authorities described them as "dangerous beyond description". The Department of Corrections said Rowe has been serving life without parole since 2002, and Dubose began a 20-year sentence in 2015. "As [Tuesdsay] went on, and I learned more and more about these two officers and met their families, I realized that the impact of these cowardly acts is far-reaching".

Monica had worked for the facility for almost eight years after being hired in October of 2009.
