Insane Killer Escapes on Field Trip to County Fair

AP reports..

At this risk of being unpopular, I'm going to go on the record to say that it's not a good idea to take unrestrained criminally-insane murderers in nondescript street clothing to local social gatherings. This man in particular, Phillip Arnold Paul, age 47, had killed an elderly woman whom he believed to be a witch, back in 1987. He'd been in the Eastern State Hospital in Spokane, WA ever since.

Evidently he'd been on the straight-and-narrow (no witch-killings) for a few years and he'd earned the privilege to attend the annual Schizophrenic Murderers County Fair Jamboreee (citation needed). Apparently they also give each crazed psychopath a small amount of money, say, oh, roughly the amount needed for a one-way Greyhound trip out of state, to use at their leisure for the games and rides at the fair. Out of the blue, Crazy Uncle Phil gave his handlers the slip (but in all fairness, it was only the second time he'd escaped, his first being all the way back in 1992), and is currently at large.

Oh, and Philip's brother happened to casually inform the press that Philip "was a high school and junior college wrestler and a martial artist."

Thanks, Eastern State Hospital!
