FL - Brother Helped Kidnap Victim Escape Alive, New Port Richey, 2005
NEW PORT RICHEY - Alan Malone knew right way from the tone of his sister's voice when he called her Saturday that something was terribly wrong.
He was right.
A few hours before, police say, his sister, Melony Malone Kinard, 38, of Spring Hill, had been kidnapped at gunpoint in Pasco County by her estranged husband, Roy David Kinard III.
She was in the back seat of her husband's car, bound at the ankles with a phone cord, as the 40-year-old man drove down U.S. 19 from Pasco to Tarpon Springs in Pinellas County.
Malone became concerned after his mother, who lives in Spring Hill, got a call from one of his sister's co-workers that she hadn't shown up for work Saturday morning.
The family knew that Melony had been having trouble with Kinard, the man she was trying to divorce after a long and bitter marriage. Less than two weeks ago, she had received a domestic violence injunction against her husband after filing for divorce.
Malone, who was more than 900 miles away in Indiana, called his sister's cell phone. After several attempts to reach her, she answered in a frightened voice.
``She told me he had a gun,'' Malone said Sunday. ``She said he promised he wasn't going hurt her. I told her to put him on the phone, and I started talking to him.''
Roy Kinard was distraught and talked about committing suicide, Malone said.
Police said Kinard is a convicted felon with a history of domestic violence.
In 1995, he was convicted of grand theft auto in Hernando County and sentenced to seven years in state prison. He was released in May 1999.
His acquittal on other charges related to the 1995 case, however, made bigger news.
He had been accused of attempted murder in assaults on a former girlfriend and her mother. The jury found him not guilty of charges that he attacked the women with a ball-peen hammer and a steel rod, fracturing their skulls.
At the time, the trial judge said he disagreed with the verdict and that the jury had ``engaged in speculation'' to reach its decision.

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

Felon with violent history freed from prison in error

State officials let an inmate walk out of prison this week and hop a bus bound for Tampa when he should have gone straight to the Pasco County Jail.
Roy David Kinard, 45, has a history of violence against his former wife and law enforcement. He has pending charges including aggravated battery, aggravated assault and false imprisonment stemming from an incident last May in which authorities said he showed up at his ex-wife's home on Zimmerman Road in Port Richey with a gun.
It wasn't the first time he harmed Malone, records show. In 2005, she obtained a domestic violence injunction against him. He violated it a week later, kidnapping her and firing five shots at Tarpon Springs police officers during a pursuit.
Then he showed up again last May with a gun. Those new charges violated his probation on the 2005 case, and he was sentenced to more time behind bars.
He spent most or all of the time since in the Pinellas County Jail, according to Gretl Plessinger of the Department of Corrections.
When he arrived at DOC's Central Florida Reception Center in Orlando on Wednesday, she said, officials there determined he had served his full sentence.
"When we get them we start to calculate the sentence and set a tentative release date. When we added up everything the court had given him, he had no more time left," she said.
Kinard walked out about 11:30 p.m. and got on a bus that was expected to arrive in Tampa about 6 a.m. Thursday, said Pasco sheriff's spokesman Kevin Doll.
DOC officials had failed to notice the detainer on his record, indicating Pasco authorities wanted him in their custody.
She said DOC officials are looking at how the error happened.
Kinard had not been located by Thursday evening.
Doll said his agency issued an officer safety alert Thursday and was asking for the public's help in locating Kinard, though he warned that people should not try to approach him.
"We don't know what he might do to remain at large, and that's one thing that makes him dangerous," Doll said.
