Two Georgia guards are dead, and two convicts are on the run after a prison escape Tuesday in Putnam County, Georgia.
At 6:45 am, 45-year-old Donnie Russell Rowe and 24-year-old Ricky Dubose overpowered and managed to disarm two guards as 33 prisoners were being transported between prisons. Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills says that after disarming the two guards, one of the inmates shot and killed them.
“We are still desperately looking for these two individuals. They are armed with 9 mm pistols that were taken from these correctional officers. They are dangerous beyond description. If anyone sees them or comes into contact, they need to call 911 immediately,” Sills said.
The Georgia Department of Corrections identified the guards as 42-year-old Christopher Monica and 58-year-old Curtis Billue. Monica is said to have joined the department in October 2009, and Bilue joined in July 2007. Monica leaves behind a wife and Bilue is survived by father, brother, and sister.

Rowe was being held for life without the possibility of parole for multiple armed robbery convictions in Bibb County from October 2001. He was also convicted on multiple aggravated assault charges and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
Dubose was in prison for a single armed robbery conviction from 2014, along with multiple convictions for credit card fraud, financial identity fraud, theft by taking, burglary, robbery and a single conviction for entering a vehicle. He was eligible for release in September of 2034. Dubose was said to be a member of the Ghostface Gangsters when he was on the outside and became a member of the Aryan gang in prison.
