It is gratifying to see Ford get the opportunity to sink his teeth into a meaty story, which today contained the following nugget:
(McDonald County Deputy Mike)LeSueur said there was no probable cause to remove the remaining eight children from the compound, as the accused (Raymond Lambert, Patty Lambert, Paul Epling, and Tom Epling) are no longer present. He said the four are believed to be staying in a travel trailer out of state. No warrant has been issued for their arrest at this time. Steve Geeding, McDonald County prosecutor, said he just discussed the matter with a judge, who said the four could leave the state, as long as they return for a preliminary hearing Oct. 2. McDonald County Associate Circuit Court Judge John LePage is presiding in the case.
