Monsters Among Us: Austin Boutain charged with the murder of ChenWei Guo, during a carjacking at the University of Utah; He is also a person of interest, along with his wife Kathleen, in a Colorado murder

Victims
Mitchell Bradford Ingle, 63
ChenWei Guo, 23

Statement from ChenWei Guo’s family:
“We are devastated by the loss of our son ChenWei, who brought immense joy into our lives and the lives of all who knew him. It is hard to capture in words his happy, positive outlook on life. ChenWei aspired to work in the future helping others to feel better about themselves. He was outgoing, adventurous, highly intellectual and a deeply faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He was thankful to be able to share his testimony of the Savior Jesus Christ with many as a missionary in Provo.

We are grateful for the experiences ChenWei had in Utah and at the University of Utah. We are very moved by the outpouring of support and sympathy we have received from so many of his friends and even from those who did not know ChenWei personally. These expressions of remembrance and condolence have given us comfort.

We know many are interested in ChenWei’s story, but we respectfully ask for privacy at this time as we grieve our beloved son.”

Another Parole Hearing coming up for killer Edward Seibold – Help stop this killer from being paroled

Victims
Sarah Elizabeth Sinclair, 18,
Mary Lynn Sinclair, 9
Mary “MayMay” Durant, 8 (Mary Lynn’s best friend)
Juanita Sinclair, mother, survived

SAMPLE LETTER TO THE PAROLE BOARD:

State of Alabama
Board of Pardons and Paroles
P.O. Box 302405
Montgomery, AL 36130-2405
Members of the Alabama Board of Parole Hearings:
Re: Parole Hearing Planned for Edward A. Seibold, AIS# 105403, Hearing Date: November 8, 2017

Please DO NOT grant parole to Edward A Seibold, AIS# 105403. As a concerned citizen, I am writing to protest the projected parole of this convicted murderer.

On September 6, 1967, Edward Seibold entered the Sinclair home and proceeded to use a shotgun on the people in the home that he could find. He was obsessed with Cathey Sinclair, age 20. They had dated, but Cathey broke up with him after the summer of 1966, but he would not be stopped. He harassed this family over and over again, until he went there to shoot and kill all in the residence. At the end, killed 3 people, 1 adult, Sarah Elizabeth Sinclair, 18, and 2 children, Mary Lyn Sinclair, 9, and Mary Durant, 8. He also shot and wounded Juanita Sinclair, Cathey’s mother.

The heinous nature of the murders of these girls, and the continued harassment of this family should preclude any consideration of parole for Edward Siebold. His actions have shown that he is extremely volatile and that he has no regard for human life. For this heinous crime, Seibold was originally sentenced to death but it was later changed to life in prison but he sentenced the Sinclair & Durant 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 Washington a three year set off before any future parole reviews.

Thank you for your consideration,
Sincerely,
____________________________________________________ Date____________________
