A Less Than Welcome Homecoming

Fourteen years is a long time for an accused felon to be on the run. The span of time presents challenges for the most seasoned prosecutors and investigators. Over time, memories of witnesses and accomplices fade, if not lapse. Police evidence moved from room to room or building to building could be lost or deteriorate if not handled properly.
