The Antigua Sun reports today that Antiguan commissioner of police Trueheart Smith is investigating whether police officers may have helped DC sniper John Allen Muhammed escape from a St. John's police station last year:

"Muhammad was detained by the police on 13 March, 2001 for attempting to check in someone under the name of Dwight Russell at the V.C. Bird International Airport, but later walked out of the Newgate Street police station.... the sergeant in charge took ill and went off duty at 11:39 a.m., and a minute later at 11:40 a.m. Muhammad walked out the station."
