Search For Suspected Killer Mistakenly Released

Sunday, November 20, 2011 – Anne Kramer
Police in Prince George’s County are looking for a man who was mistakenly released from jail.

Authorities say Frederick Scott was taken into custody in May for the murder of a Washington, D.C. man back in March.

According to police Scott was arrested by police in Las Vegas on a first degree murder warrant and then extradited to Prince George’s County.

Police say he was being held without bond but a clerical error recently allowed him to post bond and be released.

A bench warrant was issued for Scott last Friday.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Prince George’s County Police at 301-772-4925.
