New photos shared in the media show two escaped Georgia inmates shortly after being captured in Tennessee Thursday.

The photos show heavily tatted Baldwin State Prison inmates Donnie Russell Rowe and Ricky Dubose after they were caught about 50 miles southeast of Nashville, Tennessee.

The two men are suspected of killing prison transfer Sgts. Christopher Monica and Curtis Billue Tuesday while on a prison bus in Putnam County.

And there are some noticeable differences in the appearance of the two men when compared to the jail photos that were circulating nationwide following their escape.

Initial photos released by the Georgia Department of Corrections show Rowe, 43, as a heavyset man with a beard and mustache. Dubose has no noticeable tattoos. A photo was later released that showed Dubose, 24, with face and neck tattoos.

But Rowe is almost unrecognizable in the photo released after his capture. He is clean shaven and thinner. Both men appear covered with tattoos on their chests and possibly arms as well.

They were captured after a homeowner saw them trying to steal his car and held them at gunpoint.
