    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.). Have respect for those who don't do text messaging or other lingo. 5 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS.

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____________________
