Georgia has been on high alert for the last several days as a manhunt ensued to capture two inmates who killed two prison guards to escape. After a massive car chase in Tennessee, the two have been apprehended just south of Nashville, according to Georgia Governor Nathan Deal.
There was a whopping $130k reward for information that would lead to their arrest. The men were ruthless and as Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills said, “dangerous beyond description.”
After killing the officers, the pair then carjacked a driver who pulled up behind the bus, and fled in his Honda Civic along state Highway 16 in Putnam County, southeast of Atlanta.
Signs of the fugitives turned up hours later and 25 miles north, in Madison, where authorities found the house ransacked and, hours later, the pickup stolen. By then, the trail had gone cold.
Rowe, 43, has been serving life without parole since 2002, and Dubose, 24, began a 20-year sentence in 2015. Both were convicted of armed robbery and other violent crimes, and they’ve been cellmates more than once in Georgia’s prisons.
Monica, 42, and Billue, 58, were both transfer sergeants at Baldwin State Prison. Monica had been with the Georgia Department of Corrections since October 2009 and Billue since July 2007.
Thankfully the monsters were caught and we no longer nee to worry about them!
