The funny thing about the Fayette Factor is that it is almost always active, but rarely do people notice it. It disappears into the background of news stories and is there, even when you least expect it.

Can you name the road where the shooting of one of the men, Richard Matt, occurred?
Sources say law enforcement personnel spotted Matt in the woods at about 3:45 p.m. [on June 26, 2015] after the owner of a camper called 911 to report that he had spotted the two escaped inmates.Editor of The Press-Republican in Plattsburgh, New York, tweeted:
The Press-Republican reported that the shooting happened on Route 30 near the intersection of Route 41/Fayette Road, which is close to the cabin where Matt had been Thursday. Sources say a Customs Border Protection agent fired the fatal shot that killed Matt. Source.
LIQUOR BOTTLE FOUND
Matt was shot close to the site of a cabin on Fayette Road where, police know, he had been this week.
Feces found at that cabin had tested DNA positive for connection to Matt, sources told the Press-Republican.
Patricia Duffy, who lives on Fayette Road, said the final showdown with Matt happened just west of Route 30.
The owner of the camp, Bobby Willett, "found a liquor bottle sitting out that he had not drank out of," Duffy said shortly after Matt was killed.
"He called the cops, and a bunch of them went up there."
Mitch Johnson, Willett's cousin, said the convicts had apparently broken into the hunting cabin, which is down a dirt drive, just a short distance from Willett's home.
“He lives near the camp. He was outside talking to police, and then they heard shots in the woods," Johnson said. Source.
That wasn't the only "Fayette" news that occurred during this same time period.

He was an uncle of geneticist Thomas Hunt Morgan and a maternal grandson of John Wesley Hunt, an early founder of Lexington, Kentucky, and one of the first millionaires west of the Allegheny Mountains. He was also the brother-in-law of A.P. Hill and of Basil W. Duke. He was said to be a direct descendant of Revolutionary War general and hero Daniel Morgan, whose own great grand-uncle was perhaps history's most successful privateer (some say pirate), Sir Henry Morgan.
In 1846, John Hunt Morgan joined the Fraternal Order of Freemasons, at Daviess Lodge #22, Lexington, Kentucky.
