Police Get 1,200 Tips as Manhunt for New York Inmates Enters 12th Day

After more than 1,200 tips from the public, authorities on Wednesday expanded a manhunt for two killers whose brazen escape from an upstate New York prison was discovered 12 days ago. State police reopened Route 374, a main road from the maximum-security Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, New York, to Plattsburgh, which had been closed since police sniffer dogs picked up the scent of 48-year-old Richard Matt and 35-year-old David Sweat last week. Joyce Mitchell who met the men in her job training convicts in the prison tailor shop, remained in jail, accused of supplying them with hacksaw blades and a screwdriver bit used in the breakout.
