Phillip Paul, who was on the run for three days, had been planning the break for "at least the last several months," Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich said at a news conference.

Paul was recaptured at about 4 p.m. PT in Goldendale, Washington, sheriff's Sgt. Dave Reagan said. Goldendale is about 250 miles from the site of Paul's escape from a county fair in Spokane County, Washington.

Police received a tip Saturday afternoon that Paul was dropped off by a person he managed to dupe into giving him a ride to Goldendale, Knezovich said. Police spotted him hiding in a wooded area about 100 yards from the drop-off point Sunday and eventually arrested him while he was trying to hitch another ride, Knezovich said.

Why would they think to take them to the fair?

  • Because everyone deserves to have their freedom except for the victims. Who cares that the family that he destroyed their lives had to be shock over when they found out he was allowed out to go to a fair. He had his right to have fun. Personally since he was sane enough to plan this then he's sane enough to fry for the murder!

  • IMO, someone's head should roll for the decision.

    I also think if the guy is sane enough to PLAN this for months than he should be doing time for it in a regular prison.

    I used to work in a kids toy store and we had a group come in twice a month. I had to ask them to stop coming. The people that were supposed to be watching them would wander off, sometimes even leave the store, talk on their cell phone etc...and these people were being left with little kids....NOT GOOD!

  • Casue the supervisors are STUPID! This is the second time this guy has gotten loose. I thnk if hes smart enough to do it, twice, then he is more than sane enough to be tried more murder.

  • Someone in prison or a mental hospital shouldn't be out and about as if they are 100% normal. Its ridiculous how well prisoners are treated. They only need a cell and a bed,IMO. But they have TV, rec rooms, and now field trips to the Fair. @@ WTH?

  • Why would they think to take them to the fair?

    Because whoever is in charge of this stupidity needs their own little padded cell!

  • The guy was a killer, not just mental. This is why I never let ds go into mens room alone.
    This will give a bad name to mental people who are not killers and have the right to be in the community.
