Regarding our telephone conversation about the woman "Natalie," as you have given me very few specifics of the situation, I can only advise you in a general manner at this time.
If you believe you have evidence that a person living in this community is a fugitive, you may have certain legal obligations to notify proper authorities. However, if your belief is substantially based on suspicion and conjecture, your responsibilities are less clear.
Until you feel able to tell me more details, I can only give you a recommendation based on the limited information available to me.
If your theory is founded on hearsay and lacks any real evidence, your best strategy may be to avoid future contact with this woman. However, if you feel this woman presents a threat to you now or if she becomes a threat in the future, I urge you to contact me immediately so we can take measures to protect your interests.
From what you've told me, Devlin, you are in a very delicate situation. As your friend and your attorney, I hope you will take extreme care in any future interaction with this woman. For your own protection, if anything at all changes, please get in touch with me right away.
W. Ronald Douglas
Attorney at Law
