LEAVING A SMALL COMMUNITY.. ANXIOUS.
1518 "What are we supposed to do?" 1520
Andrea and Cletus live just outside the small town
of Winfield and just 200 yards away from a home that's
slated to house Jeremy Felix
1443 "No one's really even told us for sure what his
record is, how many times, how many people he's injured,
none of that information was ever given to us, and
now he's going to be living right across the road?"
The couple wasn't notified by companies in charge
of Felix's care that he'd soon be moving in.. but
word travels fast in a small town.
The couple heard the news from their neighbors, then
brought it to the attention of the town chair.
332 "I didn't know anything about it." 335
The mystery surrounding Felix's housing situation
Officers in Barabaoo say they weren't informed when
Felix was first moved into town and they weren't
told he's leaving, either.
111 "I had no knowledge of that, the state nor Dungavrin
nor Care Wisconsin had informed us of any type of
a move." 117
957 "It scares the heck out of me." 10
With little information and very few options, Winfield
residents aren't sure what to do next.

scared. And I don't know how to help them out." 835
And just across the street, Andora and Cletus are
left wondering what's to come next.

idea what's going on." 1911
