A Matter Of Opinion

The Fugitive

Phillip A. Paul remains at large after walking away from the Spokane Interstate Fair where he was one of a group of Eastern State Hospital patients on a field trip. As most people know by now, he was committed to Eastern after being found not guilty of a 1987 murder by reason of insanity.

Although after-the-fact public reaction is about what you’d expect, officials say ESH groups, apparently including Paul at least once, have gone to the fair under similar circumstances in the past, seemingly without incident.
