"MONROE — Jayme Biendl was so prompt 'you could set your watch' by her, so why did she remain missing for nearly 90 minutes on the night she died, her boyfriend wondered during a memorial vigil Sunday night.
'Does that mean she's lying there for an hour and a half?' asked Ken King, who had dated Biendl for five years. His conclusion: 'They did not bother to look for Jayme.'
Biendl, found strangled with a microphone cord at the chapel of the Monroe Correctional Complex late Saturday, felt 'isolated' at that post, said King, describing the chapel as 'out there on an island.'
'She's been expressing her concerns for quite a while,' said King, 46, of Mukilteo. 'She's out there alone at this time of night with inmates in there for anything from rape to murder.'
About 100 people, many of them fellow correctional officers, joined a roadside vigil lit with candles late Sunday.
