“Another day has dawned and our Averie is still gone, and now her killer walks free. The cold, gray rain outside matches our grief. Wade Correctional has confirmed that he was released and has left the prison. We wait now for confirmation of where he will be living. He has 48 hours to report to a probation and parole office – the end of the 48 hours falls on Saturday and that means it could be Monday before he reports. 4 days of no supervision. Please continue to share his information and his photo with urgency. Hold you children a little tighter. The world just got a little colder.” — Avery’s Family, Source: KSLA 12 News, By Troy Washington, Feb. 24, 2015
