Reidents, media and even some law enforcement officials have a lot of questions for the Georgia Department of Corrections regarding the escape of the two prisoners from Hays State Prison in Pennville on Monday.

The Department of Corrections has not been very forthcoming with the media or residents of Chattooga County.  AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio has contacted Hays Prison multiple times over the past two days with no response at all from prison officials.

Other local media have not been getting any better results either.  The Rome News Tribune, Rome Newswire, The Summerville News and Channel 9 in Chattanooga have all expressed their dismay with the lack of information from the Department of Corrections.

A notice was sent shortly before 7 PM yesterday evening announcing today’s press conference at Hays State Prison.
