"It's really scary to think about.," said Siharath.
In 2003 Kenneth Mallady was found unfit to stand trial on charges of trying to cut his mother's head off with a pocket knife and trying to gouge his step-father's eyes out.
For the last two years Mallady was confined Ann's Care Home halfway house in Antioch but July 26 he escaped and made his way to the Meekong Market.
That's where Siharath says she caught him stealing beer.
"He said he was an officer and I was ruining his investigation he was gonna arrest me and I was like no I think you stole that," said Siharath.
Siharath says she let him go out of fear but when he returned again her father confronted him and the two got into a physical altercation.
Police arrested Mallady on assault and shoplifting charges but his record came up clean so he wasn't handed over the the halfway house.
Hickman County Sheriff Randal Ward handled Mallady's initial murder case and he says the escape could have ended right there if employees at Ann's Care House had properly contacted authorities.
"I felt like the facility he was staying in they should have notified law enforcement.," said Ward.
Because there was no notice Mallady wasn't on any law enforcement databases.
That's why Williamson County authorities didn't bring him in either when they checked his record during a suspicious person call on August 1st.
They also got a second call about Mallady on the 3rd.
Mallady still wasn't on any wanted lists when Marshall county authorities talked to him August the 7th.
That changed later in the day when Sheriff Ward entered him into the database and the manhunt began.
A Park Ranger in Marshall county finally found Mallady in Horton Park Thursday and arrested him.

Houston brother will be his own attorney in court
June 18, 2013 13:02 GMT
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Roane County man will face federal gun violation charges next month without an attorney.
The Knoxville News Sentinel (http://bit.ly/17VlXpM ) reported Rocky Joe Houston will represent himself on a charge of possession of a gun by a felon.
The charge came after Houston earlier represented himself in state court on charges stemming from a police chase. He was convicted of evading arrest and reckless endangerment.
Houston and his brother, Leon Houston, were tried, but not convicted, in the 2006 shooting deaths of a Roane County deputy and his ride-along companion.
In federal court, Rocky Joe Houston is claiming the officer who charged him with the felony had no legal authority.
