Release of two murderers could have Pinellas connection

PINELLAS, Fla. (970 WFLA)- State law enforcement officials announced Tuesday they have identified a handful of suspects who might have played a part in the release of two convicted Orlando-area murderers within the last month.

But only one was publicly named — a Pinellas County man who was mistakenly freed after a document with a forged Pinellas circuit judge’s signature turned up in his file in 2009. “We have today uncovered key facts and we have now targeted several suspects,” Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Gerald Bailey said at a press conference.

He noted, though, that investigators still are in the early stages and much is still unknown on how the two prisoners escaped. Click Here to read the entire story at TBO.com
