Governor: DNA Miles From Prison Is Linked To Escaped Inmates

As searchers using dogs and helicopters on Tuesday continued to focus intensely on a heavily wooded area in far northern New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said DNA found just miles from a maximum-security prison is linked to the convicted murderers who escaped more than two weeks ago. Cuomo told reporters Monday night that the current lead has "good evidence, DNA data" regarding inmates David Sweat and Richard Matt. It wasn't immediately clear if the DNA belonged to one or both of the inmates.
