Investigation Underway After Inmate Mistakenly Released
After an inmate at the Southern Regional Jail was mistakenly released last week, a follow-up investigation asked why it happened. A state jail agency chief says it was human error/ 51-year old Anthony Lee Ramsey was released Tuesday of last week and recaptured Wednesday. Media outlets report paperwork had been sent to the jail dismissing a magistrate court case involving Ramsey. But Ramsey had previously been ordered held by a circuit court after his indictment on murder charges for a shooting in January. West Virginia Regional Jail Authority executive director Joe DeLong called the mistaken release a breakdown in communication.
