Insane killer escapes on field trip to county fair
Officers from the Spokane County Sheriff's Department confer in the parking lot outside the Spokane County Fairgrounds and Expo Center Thursday in Spokane. A killer committed to a mental institution has escaped during a field trip to the Spokane County Interstate Fair. Spokane County sheriff's Sgt. Dave Reagan says 57-year-old Phillip Arnold Paul was last seen Thursday morning in the northeast part of the fairgrounds. A store clerk told authorities she saw someone matching Paul's description later in the morning, and Reagan says investigators believe he has gotten outside the fairgrounds.
