Killer on the run from county fair

September 19, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A criminally insane killer who escaped during a mental hospital field trip to a county fair remained on the run as furious residents and officials wondered why such a dangerous person was out in public.

Authorities believe Phillip Arnold Paul, 47, is heading to the Sunnyside, Wash., area, where his parents and many siblings live.

He was committed after being acquitted by reason of insanity in the 1987 slaying of an elderly woman in Sunnyside.
