Something smells a bit fishy to us!
Andrew Wylie, the Clinton Country district attorney, confirmed for the press today that Joyce Mitchell — a supervisor in the Clinton Correctional Facility's tailor shop, where two convicts broke out of days ago — did not provide the men with power tools.

Wylie did however confirm that Joyce did take contraband into the prison. That's not a whole lot to go on as Wylie said that contraband could be anything from "toothpaste to blades and drugs."
Though when asked if Mitchell could face charges for bringing contraband in, Wylie said, "Yes. Of course she can."
NBC also reports that sources close to the investigation say that Mitchell was captivated by Matt, so much so that "she thought it was love" and apparently was going to be the getaway driver until she got cold feet and bailed at the last minute.
Richard Matt and David Sweat broke out almost a week ago when they used tools to saw their way out of their cells and went all Shawshank Redemption, escaping through a manhole.
Hundreds of police are still combing the area trying to find the two men who are at large.
Thought it doesn't really give us a lot of information, at least we know it wasn't the tailor in the prison with the power tools!
