Two convicted murderers who used power tools to cut their way out of a prison near the Canadian border could be nearby or “in Mexico by now,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Sunday. The intense manhunt focused on the fields and Adirondack woods near the prison in upstate New York after the inmates’ escape was apparently hampered by a prison employee’s decision to back out as their getaway driver nine days ago. The inmates, David Sweat and Richard Matt, planned to have the now-jailed prison worker drive them about seven hours away to an unknown destination, She backed out at the last minute, but remains the only one arrested at this point.

A couple developments on Thursday regarding what will probably evolve into a realignment of public restroom designations. First, in Virginia, a transgender teenager said in a lawsuit that he has been stigmatized by a policy that bars him from using the boys’ restrooms at his high school. The complaint says Gavin Grimm, 16, used the communal restrooms without incident until the board, responding to complaints from local residents, adopted a policy in December requiring transgender students to use a private facility. Also Thursday, in Boston, Mayor Martin Walsh has signed an executive order creating gender-neutral restrooms inside City Hall. The two single-stall restrooms are located on the fifth floor of the building outside the mayor’s office and city council chamber, and traditional restrooms continue to be available in the building. A sign posted outside the gender-neutral restroom says: “This restroom may be used by any person regardless of gender identity or expression.”
