No Notification

The Logan County Sheriff’s Department did not contact those involved in the murder case of Timothy Buffington when he escaped from the Pine Bluff prison. As of Thursday, five days later, there still has been no contact or welfare checks done on them from local law enforcement.

I feel it was the responsibility of the local law enforcement to notify any citizen when something like this happens that could affect them personally, not just by making posts on Facebook. The people connected to this case had to learn of Buffington’s escape from Facebook and friends.

No matter who a witness or juror is they have a right to be protected or at least checked on by law enforcement. Maybe local law enforcement doesn’t take matters like this seriously.
