Tennessee has some work to do when it comes to monitoring offenders.
Tennessee Comptroller Justin P. Wilson recently released an audit of the state Board of Parole that found, at a minimum, annual arrest checks were completed on behalf of 82 parolees who had been dead for periods ranging from less than six months to more than 19 years.
At worst, officers actually documented contact indicating other dead offenders were still alive.
