Report: New York Prison Inmate Escaped Repeatedly

Convicted killer David Sweat reportedly told authorities he escaped from his prison cell not once, not twice, but almost every night for several months. He told investigators, during those nightly jaunts, Sweat learned his way through the maze of tunnels and pipes in the bowels of the Clinton Correctional Facility -- eventually devising the escape route that he and fellow inmate Richard Matt used to break out of the maximum security prison. All the while, guards at the upstate New York prison apparently had no idea what was happening. Sweat reportedly ventured out after the 11:30 p.m. head count, when he suspected guards were asleep. He crawled back into his cell each morning before the 5:30 a.m. check. This continued for many nights until June 6, when guards made their morning rounds and discovered Sweat and Matt were gone.
