Parole Opposition: Delton Thurl Dowthitt is up for parole for killing 2 young girls; Please help voice your opposition to getting released


Gracie Marie and Tiffany Elena Purnhagen

Father, Dennis Thurl Dowthitt and son, Delton Thurl Dowthitt, killed 2 young ladies, one was Delton’s ex-girlfriend, the other, her little 9 year old sister. Dennis was executed in 2001. Now, Delton has a parole hearing coming up in March. After reading about what happened to these girls, I know that Delton should not be allowed out of prison. He pleaded guilty and received a sentence of 45 years (plus 7 years more for trying to escape at a later time). A sentence WAY TOO LIGHT for what he did. He should have been executed as well, or even LWOP. What especially angers me is that he still brags about committing these murders. And every time he is up for parole (every 5 years), it only tortures the family and loved ones of these two beautiful girls. But I am hoping that he will not be released on parole, but have to spend every single day in prison that he was sentenced to. It would keep him in prison until he is about 68 years old, if I have figure it out correctly.

Here is my post on this heinous crime: Monsters Among Us: Dennis and Delton Dowthitt raped and killed 16-year-old Gracie and 9-year-old Tiffany Purnhagen *Dennis Thurl Dowthitt was executed for their murders; his son Delton Thurl Dowthitt sentenced to 45 years in prison and now up for parole*

Re: Parole Hearing for Delton Thurl Dowthitt, TDCJ Number: 00632108

Please DO NOT grant parole to Delton Thurl Dowthitt, TDCJ Number: 00632108. As a concerned citizen, I am writing to protest the projected parole of this convicted murderer.

On June 13, 1990. Dowthitt and his father, Dennis Thurl Dowthitt raped and killed 2 young girls, Gracie and Tiffany Purnhagen. Both eventually confessed and Dennis Dowthitt was executed in 2001. Delton Dowthitt received a very light sentence and is once again up for parole.

The heinous nature of the murders of these girls should preclude any consideration of parole for Delton Thurl Dowthitt. His actions have shown that he is extremely volatile and that he has no regard for human life. For this heinous crime, Dowthitt was sentenced to 45 years in prison but he sentenced the Purnhagen families and friends to a lifetime of grief and sorrow.

In the interests of justice, public safety, and to lessen the emotional trauma for the victim’s family, please consider giving Dowthitt a longer set off before any future parole reviews.

Thank you for your consideration,
Sincerely,
