As a massive manhunt continues, investigators in upstate New York are still trying to figure out how two violent murderers were able to saw, cut and drill their way out of a maximum security prison.

Governor Andrew Cuomo says the two men almost certainly had outside help in getting power tools and figuring out their escape pathway, and investigators are now going over records of civilian employees and private contractors, looking for anyone who might have had reason to help the convicts.
