Who Botched the Amber Alert?

RelishaTenau RuddAlthough originally botched, an Amber Alert is now active for 8-year-old Relisha Tenau Rudd. Police believe Relisha is with  51-Khalil Tatumyear-old Khalil Tatum, a janitor at the homeless shelter where the girl had been living with her mother. Thursday, while searching for Relisha and Tatum, police found Tatum’s wife, beaten to death, at a Red Roof Inn on Oxon Hill Road in Prince George’s County MD. Tatum has now been charged with the death of his wife, Andrea Denise Tatum. Relisha’s family is pleading with her abductor to return her home safely.

The Concerned Citizen has a few Red Alert questions for Mayor Gray.

  • Why wasn’t the Amber Alert activated right away by states outside of the District of Columbia?
  • What DC agency is responsible for initiating the alert?
  • Who’s job is it to notify and follow-up with other jurisdictions to ensure that they have activated the alert?
  • Did other states fail to act or was this just another in the long line of recent screw-ups by employees and/or officials who work for the DC government?
