Search for 2 Killers Drags On, Rural NY Residents on Edge

Residents in rural New York, unaccustomed to locking their doors, day or night, were on edge as the massive manhunt for two killers stretched into a ninth day. More than 800 law enforcement officers in the hunt for David Sweat and Richard Matt scoured the fields and Adirondack woods several miles around the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora near the Canadian border. State police remained stationed overnight Sunday at intervals in the wooded search area, which came alive with the loud chirps of crickets and frogs. The men cut themselves free from a maximum-security prison using power tools.
