    Authorities have shot and killed New York prison escapee and convicted murderer Richard Matt. His fellow escapee David Sweat is reportedly now being chased by police, likely signaling the end of an intense, three-week manhunt. Matt was reportedly brought down by police in the vicinity of Lake Titus, New York where authorities had been narrowing their search in recent days. The search had intensified after police found evidence the pair had broken into a nearby cabin and were suspected of making a run toward the Canadian border.
