"County police obtained a warrant for Chirinos, 32, on Jan. 17, charging him with first-degree assault and other crimes, according to police, but they haven't found him."

Jan 17???? Really? REALLY?

Does Jan 17 make sense (6 months after the fact)? Or was it supposed to say "June 17"? Does anyone fact check these stories?

Hello copyeditors at the Washington Post, please do your job.
