The audio recording of his call to the Salem PD has been released.
He never indicated any urgency or gave any hint whatsoever that there was an emergency situation developing. He simply asked for a supervisor to call him. This directly contradicts his previous statement that “I thought I could get the fastest response by making personal contact.” If you want “the fastest response,” you at least tell the person taking the message that it’s urgent.
His response is looking worse and worse every time more evidence comes out.
END OF LINE
