Escaped Pendleton Psych Patient Picked Up in California
Thaddeus Ziemlak made quite the trip after escaping the custody of the Psychiatric Security Review Board. He was supposed to go on a planned trip but didn't return when he was scheduled to.
He was found in California nearly a month later. Quite the trip for Thaddeus. This isn't the first time he's escaped custody since shooting and killing his mom in 2004. In fact, this is his third time escaping custody. He was jailed in California upon being apprehended. Authorities credit the dedication and precision of Community Services Officer Shelly Studebaker for Ziemlak's arrest.
We'll see how many more planned trips Mr. Ziemlak will be able to go on in the near future.
