Maryland - Murder Suspect Set Free On Accident

Somehow in Maryland, a murder suspect was accidentally released from police custody in Prince George's County, Maryland. 18-year-old Dekale Bowman is accused of killing his 16-year-old girlfriend but is now free after jail workers mistakenly let him free. Dekale was jailed in January for the shooting death of Taiyania Thompson who was shot inside an apartment on the 1000 block of Mt. Olivet Road Northeast.

Thompson died in the hospital three days later and Bowman was identified as a suspect. Saturday, a warrant was issued for his arrest since he is now at large. Court records show Bowman was taken to Upper Marlboro, Maryland in a separate case involving a stolen car when authorities released him instead of returning him to a jail in D.C.

Prince George's County Department of Corrections spokesperson said that Bowman was in their custody Wednesday, May 2 and was released on bond the next day. They also indicated there was nothing in the jail's system indicating that he had any other charges or warrants. Of course, Bowman failed to show up to his court date Friday afternoon. The next day the warrant was issued for his arrest. Court records reveal Bowman and the victim were dating for eight months and sadly hers isn't the first violent death her family has experienced.

Thompson's father was shot and killed when she was 5-months-old and now she has joined him. Her father was only 17 when he was killed, his daughter was only 15 when Bowman shot and killed her. Tammy Carter, Thompson's grandmother said, "My heart is torn to pieces. She's only a year younger than he was when he passed. It's crazy. It just brings back so many memories, like it just happened yesterday."

"I don't even know how we're going to get through this," Carter continued. "But we're strong, we're going to fight through it, we're going to make the best of it and we're going to keep her memory alive and his." She went on to describe her granddaughter as having a very caring personality. "She was bubbly," Carter said while smiling. "She would never harm anybody. She'd give you the shirt off her back. That's how sweet she was."
