New York Parole Board:
Re: Parole Hearing Planned for Robert Golub, Inmate # 90A8024

Please DO NOT grant parole to Robert Golub, Inmate # 90A8024. As a concerned citizen, I am writing to protest the projected parole of this convicted murderer.

On March 3, 1989, Robert Golub lured 13-year-old Kelly Ann Tinyes to his home, where he beat, stabbed, mutilated and strangled her. He then put her body in a garbage bag, like she was trash, and hid her in his basement. She was found the next day. It was a horribly heinous crime, one he should spend the rest of his life in prison for.

The heinous nature of the murder of Kelly Ann Tinyes, the multiple crimes committed and the age of the victim call for him to never be released. His actions have shown that he is extremely volatile and that he has no regard for human life. For this heinous crime, Golub was sentenced to 25 years to Life in prison but he sentenced the Tinyes family 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 Golub the longest time before any future parole reviews.

Thank you for your consideration,
Sincerely,
____________________________________________________ Date____________________

Catherine Louise Tucker Whitehead murder 4/14/1983 Rockdale County, GA *Hazel Louise Short and Donald Glen Everett convicted of her kidnapping and murder; Sentenced to life in prison*

remembering the victimsFrom Hazel Short’s appeal: On the night of Thursday, April 14, 1983, Donald Glen Everett knocked at the door of Catherine Louise Tucker Whitehead’s apartment in Rockdale County and told her that she had an emergency phone call at a nearby pay telephone from her fiance, John Short. Ms. Whitehead and Short had been dating for some time and were planning to be married in June of that year.

The next morning Ms. Whitehead’s mother discovered Ms. Whitehead’s car next to the pay telephone. The receiver was off the hook and dangling by its cord. The car’s door was open and the keys were missing. Both the GBI and FBI became involved as kidnapping was suspected.

The appellant became the primary suspect. The investigation indicated that the appellant had a grudge against the 21-year-old Ms.
Whitehead because the younger woman’s fiance, John Short, was the appellant’s former husband of approximately 21 years. The investigation also indicated that the appellant and Ms. Whitehead had been involved in a fight. Police suspicions heightened when during an interview the appellant contended that she did not know Ms. Whitehead. Despite the efforts of the authorities, Ms. Whitehead was not located and no charges were brought.

Almost one year later, Donald Glen Everett was arrested based on statements he had made to others regarding Ms. Whitehead. On March 15, 1984, he admitted his involvement in the kidnapping and murder of Ms. Whitehead, and took the authorities to an abandoned well in Gwinnett County where he stated that he had thrown the lifeless body of Ms. Whitehead.

The remains of a partially, though severely, burned and badly decomposed body were removed from the well. Some clothing and a blue blanket were also removed. The remains and the clothing removed from the well were determined to be those of Ms. Whitehead. The precise cause of death could not be determined due to the decomposition of the remains, but it was determined that the death was a homicide.

Everett’s confession implicated the appellant, Tina Short, and Nickie Ford. Ford was apprehended and confessed his involvement in the crimes. Tina Short was apprehended in Nashville, Tennessee, and also confessed her involvement in the crimes. All of the confessions were basically similar. All parties confessed that they were involved in a plan to abduct Ms. Whitehead, and that the plan was carried out. Tina Short and Everett also confessed to differing degrees of complicity in the murder and concealment of the crime.
