Two and a half weeks after a Bowie County Sheriff's Deputy was shot and killed, the 911 tapes have been released. 

54-year-old Sherri Jones was killed while transporting 21-year-old Tucker Strickland out of the Bowie County Courthouse following a mental evaluation hearing.  Strickland reportedly took Jones' gun from her and shot her, taking off in the county transport van.  

A short time later, Tucker Strickland showed up at his mother's house, but it was the mother of Strickland's child that called 911.  Telling the dispatcher that Strickland had already left his mother's house, the woman promises to call police if she sees him.  

Strickland was picked up in Ashdown, still driving the Bowie County Sheriff's transport van, some 30 minutes after his escape from custody.

Parts of the 911 audio recording released by the Bowie County Sheriff's Office have been deleted under Exemptions in the Freedom of Information Act.   In the parts that remain, the woman is clearly upset and concerned to hear that Strickland is on the loose.  "I really don't know he just...(inaudible)."

Before the call ends, the dispatcher tries to reassure her.  "We will respond if he comes there. Alright. You did good baby." 

Deputy Jones worked with the Bowie County Sheriff's Department for six years.  She was 54 years old.
