Following up on yesterday’s report that Pima Sheriff Dupnik’s office had reports on file about Loughner and his erratic and threatening behavior that predated the shooting in Tucson, the New York Times is reporting that the sheriff’s office had, indeed, made visits to the Loughner home
TUCSON — The police were sent to the home where Jared L. Loughner lived with his family on more than one occasion before the attack here on Saturday that left a congresswoman fighting for her life and six others dead, the Pima County Sheriff’s Department said on Tuesday.
A spokesman, Jason Ogan, said the details of the calls were being reviewed by legal counsel and would be released as soon as the review was complete. He said he did not know what the calls were about — they could possibly have been minor, even trivial matters — or whether they involved Jared Loughner or another member of the household.
There is mounting evidence from Dupnik’ s own remarks, the Cholla report and now the New York Times account, that Loughner was on the radar of the Department which somehow never reported that Loughner needed psychiatric evaluation.
