He said, “This is not photoshop. That is how we did it last night. They have been released. We will soon call a press conference. I was the Chief negotiator to those people.”


Meanwhile, the doctor, whose identity could not be ascertained as of the time of filing this report, is a Dental therapist in the state hospital.
