New York governor: Former prison escapee David Sweat says he planned to go to Mexico
MALONE, N.Y. -- David Sweat and Richard Matt planned to head to Mexico after busting out of Clinton Correctional Facility more than three weeks ago but had to improvise after the prison tailor accused of aiding them failed to show up to give them a ride, Gov. Andrew Cuomo told a New York radio program Monday, citing statements reportedly made by Sweat to investigators.
