The headline reads: Insane Killer Escapes During Mental Institution's Field Trip
"Police are searching for killer committed to a mental institution after he escaped during a field trip to the Spokane County Interstate Fair."
Ummmm, yeah....When I think "criminally insane schizophrenic", I immediately think "Road trip!!!" Or, in this case, "Field trip!!!" Why didn't they just take him to Vegas for a weekend? It would have never hit the papers because we all know that what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas right??
It get's better: "It appears now there was a two hour lapse from the point he disappeared from his attendant to the sheriff's office was notified of his escape and obviously that's a concern to us," Sgt. Reagan told KXLY. "We're concerned that we were not aware that people of his criminal history were being brought to the fair for day trips. As a courtesy we would have liked to have been notified ahead of time."
I might just be me, but I think the two hour lapse should be more than a "concern". Coupled with the fact that no one in law enforcement knew this was happening, this is a HUGE "What the fuck????" For my friends and family in Spokane, Idaho and eastern Washington---lock your doors and windows. Holy shit.
This whole thing makes me think about taking my kids to the fair here in Maryland this weekend....Or EVER!! Although they didn't release a photo, they did release his name and I managed to find his prom picture:+
