GEORGE, BORDELON'S SISTER WOULD NOT GO INTO GREAT DETAIL ABOUT THE THREATS, ONLY THAT SHE FEARED IF TOO MUCH INFORMATION ABOUT THEM CAME OUT, HE WOULD BE KILLED BEFORE GOING TO TRIAL. MEANWHILE, BORDELON'S ATTORNEY DOESN'T WANT TOO MUCH INFORMATION ABOUT HIS DEFENSE COMING OUT, EITHER.

{***GEORGE Q: AVERY, I KNOW BORDELON ESCAPED FROM THE LIVINGSTON PARISH PRISON ONCE. IS THAT WHY HE'S NOW AT ANGOLA?}

NOT OFFICIALLY GEORGE... SOME FOLKS SPECULATE THAT'S WHY THE DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS DECIDED TO MOVE HIM OUT OF THE LIVINGSTON JAIL JUNE 2ND. OFFICIALLY, HE'S BEING KEPT AT CAMP J AT ANGOLA BECAUSE THE MURDER CHARGE AND THE SIMPLE ESCAPE VIOLATED HIS PROBATION FROM A 19-90 FORCIBLE RAPE CONVICTION.
