Police A strenuous search for Katrina's fugitives

After Katrina uprooted the populace of New Orleans, countless suspects disappeared in the confusion. Accused murderers and rapists didn't show up to court. Suspected drug dealers jumped bail en masse. Paroled child molesters who were supposed to register as sex offenders dropped off the radar. The number of registered sex offenders unaccounted for was so high that the New Orleans Police Department assigned two detectives to look for them outside the city; as many as 20% are still missing.
