The search for the "dangerous beyond belief" escaped inmates accused of killing two correctional officers is over, authorities confirmed.

Sills said the Honda Civic they carjacked at the killing scene was hidden in some woods, and they walked to the quarry from there. "It's because the public is in grave danger", said Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills. "These are seriously risky, vicious hoodlums that need to be apprehended".

Veteran correctional officers Christopher Monica, 42, and Curtis Billue, 58, were killed near Eatonton, Ga., around 6:45 a.m. The pair then carjacked a driver who pulled up behind the bus, and fled in his Honda auto down state Highway 16 in Putnam County.

'This black stripe, it's been on this badge more in the previous year than ever before, ' Sheriff Sills said Thursday, fighting back tears.

Sills said investigators were trying to determine how the killers got out of the cage and into the driver's compartment. "We are looking for them anywhere they might be on planet Earth".

Officials said Dubose, 24, is also a hardened criminal despite his relative youth, and a member of the notorious "Ghostface Gangsters" white supremacist group.

Authorities urged the public to be vigilant, and warned against approaching them.

"They were inside the caged area of the bus", Sills said.

Sills said the inmates broke into a home on Cox Road in Morgan County right after their escape and ransacked it before stealing some food and clothes.

Sills also said that authorities have discovered video of two men who might be Dobose and Rowe from a camera near where the Ford truck was stolen, but the footage was captured at night and didn't shed much light on the case.

"If somebody is helping them and we identify who they are, they will be prosecuted as parties to this crime", Sills said. Rowe has been in prison since 2002 with convictions including armed robbery, possession of a firearm during a crime and aggravated assault. After disarming the officers, one of the inmates shot and killed them, said Stills, who said about 30 inmates saw what happened.

Corrections officials can not say for sure they did not plan this escape, although they stress the two should not have known they were being transferred Tuesday morning. "It's a shame two individuals would be so cowardly to do this", Dozier said.

"Both officers were known for their unwavering commitment to their job and their love of family", the Georgia Department of Corrections said in a statement. Rowe is from Lewisberg, Tenn., about 20 miles west of Shelbyville.
