Escaped GA inmates captured in Rutherford County

Search for escaped inmates expanding as it enters third day

Authorities took Dubose and Rowe into custody in Christiana, Tenn.

Authorities warned that the men, who had escaped with the guards' 9 mm pistols, were considered very unsafe.

The two men are wanted for reportedly killing two Georgia state prison guards on a bus before fleeing in a stolen vehicle earlier this week.

Governor Nathan Deal announced that the men were in custody in a message on Twitter around 8pm Thursday. Rowe has been serving a life sentence since 2002 with convictions including armed robbery, possession of a firearm during a crime and aggravated assault. He also has "ghost" tattooed on his right forefinger and "face" on his right pinky finger, signs of membership in the Ghost Face Gangsters.

Funeral arrangements have been made for one of two prison guards killed when two Georgia inmates escaped from a prison transfer bus this week.

That's the vehicle that authorities are now looking for: a 2008 white Ford F-250 two-door with silver tool boxes on both sides.

Monica, 42, and Billue, 58, were both transfer sergeants at Baldwin State Prison.

The vehicle's security camera footage is being reviewed to piece together how the prisoners managed to wrest away the guards' weapons - and to determine which of the inmates pulled the trigger.




Ricky Myrick, assistant commissioner of the Georgia Department of Corrections, told reporters on Wednesday that the inmates were most recently cellmates at Baldwin State Prison and had been cellmates at other Georgia prisons. It's because the public is in grave danger.

Sheriff Howard Sills and Federal Bureau of Investigation officials described at a news conference Thursday the expanded effort to find Donnie Russell Rowe and Ricky Dubose.

The fugitives are armed with nine-millimeter pistols that were taken from the correctional officers.

"We will miss them deeply, and we can't replace them".

At around 7:55 p.m. ET Thursday, authorities have confirmed that the two inmates were spotted in Shelbyville, Tennessee, about an hour south of Nashville.

Dozier said that when he was alerted to their deaths, "The pain and anguish that was in the toes of my feet went up to my heart". We need the eyes and ears of really everybody in this country to be on the lookout.

As a security precaution, inmates typically are kept in the dark about plans to transport them. 'I think they don't have much to fear because they've already killed two people, so they don't have any problem killing somebody else, ' Bailey said. Authorities believe they tied up a couple in Shelbyville earlier in the day and stole a Jeep and guns.
