Free for a day, another erroneous release was made by the Department of Corrections.

On Sept. 9, 42-year-old inmate Rodney Cruz walked out of the Mangilao Facility and then was re-confined the next day.

KUAM reached out to DOC Director Samantha Brennan who says "it's an ongoing investigation and we cannot comment at this time."

Cruz has been in and out of DOC over the last several years on various charges to include terrorizing, child abuse, strangulation and aggravated assault.

This is the third erroneous release at DOC this year.
