Murder Suspect Eluded Police by Removing Prosthetic Leg Fitted with Court-ordered GPS Tracker – Incident Result
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.”
Citing police documents, the news station reported Green allegedly removed his prosthetic leg and used a second artificial limb to leave his apartment.
