The story of David Sweat and Richard Matt’s prison escape is almost like the plotline of The Shawkshank Redemption. Last year David Sweat (34) sawed a hole in the back of his prison cell at the Clinton Correctional Facility, and began making nightly explorations in the tunnels underneath. Eventually, both he and fellow inmate Richard Matt (48) escaped, but were unable to remain free for long: Richard Matt was shot and killed during a police showdown, and David Sweat was captured by police.
