U.S. Marshals and the Georgia Department of Corrections Team Up to Hunt Down Two Escapees

On October 13, 2008 inmates Johnny Mack Brown (52) and Michael Tweedel (48) escaped from Hays State Prison in Trion, GA by scaling the perimeter fence. Johnny Mack Brown was serving a life plus 70 year sentence and Michael Tweedel was serving a 20 year sentence. Investigators believe that Brown and Tweedel are currently still in the area but may attempt to flee the country via either the Canadian or Mexican boarders.
