"We didn't know."

No more comment necessary:

Orleans Parish District Attorney Eddie Jordan had a 20-year-old suspected killer within his grasp only a day ago, yet let him walk out of jail before he could bring the suspect to court on a felony gun charge.

But before Jordan's team can prosecute Treg on the gun charge, they have to find him. Because he had posted bond on the gun charge last year, he was able to walk out of jail not long after midnight Friday. The fact that Treg had been released from jail came as a surprise for prosecutors Friday.

"We didn't know," said Dalton Savwoir, Jordan's spokesman.
