"Let the DA decide to release a murder suspect that you have evidence on," he said. "That's not going to happen, I guarantee you."
Jessica Brown, OSBI spokeswoman, said Eastridge doesn't understand that the agency cannot afford to anger prosecutors.
"It reflects his lack of understanding of the OSBI and the difference between original jurisdiction and limited jurisdiction," she said. "The district attorneys determine if we get a case in their jurisdiction. We cannot be helpful if the DA doesn't want us there.
"We have to have a decent relationship. We can't ride roughshod over the system."
