Links Roundup: Jamar Freeman

A roundup of coverage of Jamar Freeman‘s stabbing death in NW DC.

The Washington Times reports that Freeman had recently absconded from the custody of DYRS.

The sources said Freeman was the subject of two warrants — one for being an absconder from a group home in Southeast that is contracted by DYRS, the other for robbery. Freeman left the group home about three weeks ago, and it was unclear whether the robbery he was being sought for occurred before or after that.

D.C. Council member Jim Graham, Ward 1 Democrat and chairman of the Committee on Human Services that has oversight of DYRS, said he was exploring what was done to return Freeman to the group home, and “how could we have done better?”
