Police Investigate Possible Sightings of Escaped NY Killers

New York State Police are investigating a possible sighting of the two convicted killers who escaped from an upstate New York prison two weeks ago. According to a State Police news release posted late Friday, two men fitting the description of inmates David Sweat and Richard Matt were seen a week ago in Steuben County, New York, over 300 miles southwest of the prison in Dannemora.
Investigators conducted interviews in both communities and have surveillance video that was initially deemed inconclusive and is being sent to Albany for analysis.
It was not clear why authorities waited a week before divulging the information.
