Monsters Among Us: James Charles Olivieri and Dominic Puliafico raped and killed 22-year-old Ethel Woods; Both sentenced to 100+ years in prison

remembering the victimsFrom James Olivieri’s appeal: During the early morning hours of January 14, 1988, James Charles Olivieri and his life-long friend, Dominic Puliafico, were driving by the Office Club in Great Falls, Montana, when they spotted and picked up a hitchhiker, Ethel Woods. Twenty-one-year-old Ethel was a deaf-mute, who communicated with the two men by writing notes. Shortly after discovering her handicap, Puliafico, indicated to Olivieri that, “this would be perfect,” with regard to raping Ethel.

One of the notes Ethel wrote to Olivieri and Puliafico asked if the two men knew of any parties occurring that night. Olivieri and Puliafico responded affirmatively and drove Ethel to their apartment. Outside of the apartment, the three encountered two neighbors and Ray Canto, a friend of Olivieri and Puliafico who had been with the two men earlier in the evening. Following a brief discussion, Olivieri, Puliafico, Ethel and Canto entered the apartment.

Shortly after entering the apartment, Olivieri began writing suggestive notes to Ethel, asking her to engage in sexual intercourse. Ethel refused. Puliafico then choked Ethel until she was unconscious. Puliafico and Olivieri proceeded to remove Ethel’s clothes. At this point, after Olivieri warned Canto that the upcoming events were going to get serious, Canto chose to leave the apartment.

Puliafico then proceeded to rape and beat Ethel as she slipped in and out of consciousness. Olivieri admitted to holding Ethel’s feet while Puliafico raped her, but denied raping or beating Ethel. Instead, Olivieri admitted that during the time Puliafico raped and
beat Ethel, he watched the two and laughed.

Thereafter, while the badly beaten Ethel was lying on the floor, Olivieri and Puliafico went into the kitchen and ate macaroni and cheese as they listened to what they believed were Ethel’s last breaths of life. Puliafico then raped Ethel for the second time. Following the second rape and to ensure that she was dead, Olivieri and Puliafico took turns striking Ethel on the back of her head with a baseball bat, both men striking her twice.

Olivieri and Puliafico then moved Ethel’s nude body into a bedroom. Later that same day, they wrapped Ethel’s body in a carpet they obtained from the basement of the apartment. They then weighted the carpet-wrapped body with a cinder block, which they purchased at a local store. That evening, they removed the carpet-wrapped body from the apartment and dumped it in the Missouri
3
River, hoping that it would be destroyed by the two dams in that area. The carpet-wrapped body, however, was discovered nearly two
months later on March 2, 1988. An autopsy revealed that Ethel died of blunt force trauma to her head. Additionally, the autopsy revealed that all of the blunt force trauma Ethel received was inflicted prior to her death.

On March 21, 1989, Olivieri, who had returned to his home state of Massachusetts within a few weeks following Ethel’s death, was extradited from Massachusetts to Montana. Puliafico, who had returned to Massachusetts a few months following Ethel’s death, was also extradited to Montana. The extradition warrant was based upon information provided by Olivieri’s brother, Fred, also of Massachusetts,
who telephoned Cascade County officials after Olivieri and Puliafico had, on various occasions, bragged to him in detail about raping and killing a deaf-mute girl in Montana and dumping her body in the Missouri River. Additionally, Olivieri told Fred that it was every mans fantasy to rape and kill a woman.

Parole Hearing Alert: Angela Dawn Fowler

dv awareness

RichardFowler
Richard Fowler

Angela Dawn Fowler only received 13 years for plotting the murder of her husband, Richard Fowler, and setting it up. It looks like she is eligible for parole 3/6/2015. I do not know when her parole hearing is, but there is a petition started to oppose her parole (it is not my petition). The link for petition is at the bottom of the link for a letter to the parole board. I hope everyone will sign it. She did not get as much time as she deserves, so she should have to spend every single day of that sentence in prison. It was because of her that Richard Fowler was murdered.

Angela Fowler parole hearing
Angela Fowler has a parole hearing on April 20. She received such a short sentence for arranging Richard Fowler’s murder, I do not believe she should be granted parole. If you want to help, there are two ways to let the parole board know. First, there is a page in the SC parole board website that you can send an email opposing her possible parole.

Oppose Parole for an Offender

You will need this information:
Name FOWLER, ANGELA DAWN

Or if you prefer, here is a letter you can print out, sign and mail to the parole board.

Mr. Montgomery and Members of the Tennessee Board of Parole Hearings:
Re: Parole Hearing Planned for Jerry Neal Carpenter, Inmate # 00119565
Please DO NOT grant parole to Jerry Neal Carpenter, Inmate # 00119565. As a concerned citizen, I am writing to protest the possible parole of this convicted murderer.
In March 1985, Myrtle Chapman was in her store, Myrt’s Package Store, getting ready to go make the bank deposit. She was missing almost $300 and knew that Jerry Neal Carpenter was the suspect. The victim, 59-year-old Myrtle Chapman was bludgeoned at least 6 times with a small hand-held hatchet.
The heinous nature of the murder of Myrtle Chapman, the multiple crimes committed should preclude any consideration of parole for Jerry Neal Chapman. His actions have shown that he is extremely volatile and that he has no regard for human life. For this heinous crime, Jerry Neal Carpenter was sentenced to Life in prison but he sentenced the Robinson family and friends to a lifetime of grief and sorrow. I would also ask that he be given the longest time between parole hearings as possible.

Thank you for your consideration,

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____________________
