Open Forum: Dannemora Prison Break

Pat Bradley/WAMC

Search teams are back in the woods of northern New York looking for two convicted murderers who broke out of a maximum-security prison a week and a half ago. 

More than 800 law enforcement officers are searching for David Sweat and Richard Matt and New York State police say they've received more than 1,000 leads - but have not turned up the killers.

The fact is that the two murderers could be anywhere. What’s your theory? Are they still close to home?
