The mother of the deceased met with one of the parole commissioners again this past June (2005) to oppose the parole and states:
"I had written a letter asking that the entire file -- letters, petitions, and other records -- be considered again. Would have been impossible to redo them, for everyone put his best foot forward originally. I didn't get notice of his release till the fall, not in the usual 30 days. Needless to say, we were distressed. By that time, though, I was consumed with my husband's illness and couldn't dwell on the parole. I did try, through Victims' Services, to get info about the conditions but got very little. I think he is restricted to a county in North Carolina, though--not sure."
It is easier for victims' families to move forward if other citizens help shoulder the fight. It would be easier on them if the killer had expressed a little remorse. He hasn't. But thanks to everyone who helped.
