Murder Suspect Eluded Police by Removing Prosthetic Leg Fitted with Court-ordered GPS Tracker – Incident
An investigation has been launched after a Washington, D.C., man who was fitted with a GPS tracker and was supposed to be confined to his home allegedly shot a man to death.
The suspect, Quincy Green, appeared to be at home when Dana Hamilton, 44, was killed on a D.C. sidewalk on May 14, 2017, according to Fox4 News. Green eluded police for six days.
Green had been ordered to wear a tracking device and stay in his home while awaiting trial on a gun charge laid last April. However, according to CBS News Washington, a technician from a California-based government contractor responsible for the trackers incorrectly placed the GPS device on Green’s prosthetic leg.
Cliff Keenan, director of pre-trial services at DC Superior Court described the incident to CBS as “human error. Plain and simple.”
