Sis Of Suicide Victim Wants Apology

Andrew Cain's sister said she doesn't hold the Latah County Sheriff's Office responsible for her brother's suicide on Sunday. Still, she wants an apology from a deputy she claims harassed the 19-year-old Pullman man across the state line using the department's Facebook page. Cain had been wanted by the sheriff's office since a bench warrant was issued for his arrest when he didn't appear in court for a probation violation in April, said Latah County Prosecutor Bill Thompson. He said Cain likely was facing some local jail time before being placed back on probation. But the sheriff's Facebook page made a bigger deal out of Cain's eluding justice, said his sister, Alise Smith of Pullman. "We have decided that Andrew Cain is no longer the Wanted Person of the Week," stated a Thursday comment to a Tuesday wanted post on the sheriff's page, "... he is the Wanted Person for the Month of June. Congratulations!"/Brandon Macz, Moscow-Pullman Daily News. More here.

Question: Should the Latah County Sheriff's Office apologize?
