FARGO, N. D. – A convicted murderer in North Dakota who walked away from a halfway house where he is temporarily transferred to a psychiatric evaluation, is back in custody.
Police say the 29-year-old Sean Schroeder was held Friday evening in Fargo after officers responded to a report of a drunken man.
Schroeder pleaded guilty in May 2017, the defeat of the death of Chad Warren on the Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation. He was transferred to the Centre Inc. on 1 June, for two weeks leave. He left there Wednesday.
Fargo police chief Dave Todd said that Schroeder is “dangerous and violent” and should not have been released for a secured facility.
Attorney Chris Myers, whose office has no objection to the leave, said earlier that Schroeder “wish” he had not left the halfway house.
