Did the escaped New York killers make it to the City of Brotherly Love?
A Philadelphia cab driver says he picked up two men matching the descriptions of missing inmates Richard Matt and David Sweat around 4:15 a.m. Thursday and dropped them off at the city’s Amtrak station.
WCAU-TV reports police are questioning the cab driver.
Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey tells the station there have been reported sightings in several cities and he has no reason to think the inmates are in Philadelphia.
The 48-year-old Matt and 34-year-old Sweat were discovered missing Saturday.
Authorities say they used power tools to cut through a steel wall and break through bricks at the 3,000-inmate Clinton Correctional Facility in far northern New York.
They say the men crawled through a steam pipe to an outside manhole.
