A convicted murderer whose prison break captivated the nation says he uncovered a way to escape from another maximum security facility in New York.
This time David Sweat said he detailed the plan involving a makeshift tool to corrections officials, asking for extra weekly visits from his Ovid girlfriend.
In an interview with The New York Times , Sweat said he told corrections officials how he would break out of the Five Points Correctional Facility at the former Seneca Army Depot in Romulus. Sweat says that’s why officials transferred him to a the Attica State Prison and didn’t grant any perks.
Sweat and another inmate, Richard Matt, escaped from New York’s Clinton Correctional Facility in 2015. They were caught after three weeks. Matt was shot and killed.
