"You may have help hiding out for a few days, but someone is going to snitch you out and then we will find you. There is no one you can trust...and no where you can go that we won't find you."
The Oconee County Sheriff's Office has stern words for two escaped inmates accused of shooting and killing two corrections officers on Tuesday.
A statewide manhunt was underway after authorities said two state prisoners, identified as Donnie Rowe and Ricky Dubose, overpowered two Georgia State Corrections officers driving a transport bus before killing them. The inmates then carjacked another vehicle and fled.

The Oconee County Sheriff's Office posted an open letter to the suspects on Facebook, urging them to turn themselves in before the law caught up with them:
Donnie and Ricky,
I hope you are reading this. What is done is done. However, I am asking you to surrender yourselves to the nearest law enforcement officer as soon as possible. You made your escape, but you won't be out long. Every lawman in the Southeast is looking for you. Every citizen in the Southeast is looking for you. You may have help hiding out for a few days, but someone is going to snitch you out and then we will find you. There is no one you can trust...and no where you can go that we won't find you. You murdered two prison guards and carjacked a taxpayer. Why wait, spending hours and days looking over your shoulder and wondering when we will kick the door in. Stop now, dial 911 and turn yourself in peacefully.
After a little more than a hour, the post had generated more than 1300 reactions and been shared more than 600 times on Facebook.
The murdered corrections officers were identified as Christopher Monica and Curtis Billue.
The search continued for Rowe and Dubose on Tuesday afternoon. Authorities said they were last seen driving a stolen grass green 2004 Honda Civic 4-door with GA license RBJ660.Anyone who sees them is asked to call 911. They are considered armed and extremely dangerous.
