11 days later, suspect still on the loose


BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- The Brunswick County District Attorney's Office promised a victim her alleged attacker would be arrested the same day he was indicted. Eleven days later, the Sheriff's Office has had no luck finding him.

Gary Jones is charged with assault on a female and assault by strangulation. Brunswick County Assistant DA Erin Holden dismissed the charges during a probable cause hearing two weeks ago, which let Jones out of jail. Then a Brunswick County grand jury indicted Jones July 19.

The alleged victim says she's upset with the way the DA's office handled the case and is concerned because deputies cannot find Jones.

Another DA flop

I guess "I told you so" is a dry well right now. I wonder if any of the nay-sayers out there will somehow blame WWAY for this guy being on the run. I guess if WWAY had not have reported on this latest DA flop, it never would have come to light and no one would be the wiser. Is this what you people call "pot-stirring"???


leave it to BRUNSWICK COUNTY DA to screw up again this is nothing new i think they need to get their heads out of their butts and start doing their jobs!!! now this woman has to be infear of her life because they cannot find the man .. i think someone needs to CLEAN house an put people in that care!!

Did anybody other than the

Did anybody other than the Brunswick County DA's office really think this guy would hang around and wait to be arrested again?

Until they find this animal,

Until they find this animal, I think Rex Gore & Erin Holden should personally take turns standing guard in front of the victim's home, work, and wherever she goes. They should sacrifice their time and put themselves at risk making sure this individual doesn't come back after her. I know that'll never happen; Rex would rather spend his time writing legislation for his buddy R.C. Soles that will benefit no one but himself. These people have no integrity or sense of shame. Good riddance, Rex.
