The plan of the two escaped murderes was to kill the husband of Joyce Mitchell, who also works at the prison, soon after they were out, a source said.
Joyce Mitchell confessed the killers’ plan to authorities. She also said that she was supposed to drive the men to her house, but she ‘didn’t say that she was going to help them’ with the killing.
Mitchell, who is currently suspended without pay from her $57,000 a year job, is being held in lieu of a $100,000 bail for

YORK (AP) — A licensed engineer who has done work at the Clinton
Correctional facility in Dannemora where two killers escaped last
weekend said the work of cutting through a cell wall and a steam pipe
was done with a high degree of professionalism.
Larry Jeffords, owner of Jeffords Steel and Engineering in upstate New York, told The Associated Press that convicts David Sweat, 34, and Richard Matt, 48, were either very proficient with the tools they used — or they had help.
tells me either they are very good at what they do, with a lot of good
training. Or they had very good equipment. Or somebody else cut the hole
for them," said Jeffords, whose knowledge of the escape is only based
on seeing photographs released by the media.
the breakout, Sweat and Matt used power tools to cut through steel and
bricks and crawled through an underground steam pipe, emerging from a
manhole outside the 40-foot walls of the maximum-security prison about
20 miles south of the Canadian border, authorities said.
officials found the inmates' beds inside the 170-year-old Clinton
Correctional Facility stuffed with clothes on Saturday morning in an
apparent attempt to fool guards making their rounds. On a cut steam
pipe, the prisoners left a taunting note containing a crude Asian
caricature and the words "Have a nice day."
suspect the inmates also had help from the inside in obtaining the
power tools. Guards and other staff members have been questioned, but no
one has been disciplined or charged.
said that when he worked at the prison he was subject to daily searches
entering and leaving the facility. A guard never left his side and all
the equipment was inventoried at the end of the day, he said.
cutting of the cell wall and steel pipe would have taken about four
hours of continuous work, Jeffords said. He also said he couldn't
believe that no one heard the noise or saw the sparks when the men cut
through the steel.
assuming it was a grinder, and then you were to start that grinder and
(begin) cutting your way out. The grinding dust is tremendous — sparks,
smoke," said Jeffords.
do that with a grinder and to do as nice a hole as they did, I just
can't see it done. I'm in the steel business and I've said before I
could have sent my best man up there with an acetylene torch or a plasma
cutter and I couldn't have a better hole," Jeffords said.

On the other thread someone speculated that the cut in the pipe was pre-cut by someone else.
That's a real possibility.
Granted, an old prison like Dannemora is always noisy.
But like the video showed, you'd need a Rockwell power tool with a cutter pad to get through that.
You probably need extension cords too.
When I use one, I need goggles and ear plugs as the noise is deafening and the sparks fly.
Looks like the inmates were running that place.
Have they been in Lockdown since ? That's a powderkeg if there ever was.

crawling out of their cells between midnight and 5 a.m. through holes

her car when they got out. He said she told authorities she backed out
