Colin Pitchfork’s latest release-child killer “still a danger” said the victim’s mother because Susanna Reid left “emotional” on GMB
When can the pitchfork be released from prison?
Pitchfork pleaded guilty to raping and murdering two teenagers and was sentenced to life imprisonment of at least 30 years. The appeal period in 2009 was shortened to 28 years.
Local MP Alberto Costa said he met with Martin Jones, chief executive of the Parole Board in England and Wales, to discuss the case.
After the meeting, Mr. Costa announced that he would write to the Minister of Justice Robert Buckland Congressman to ensure that he and the parole committee are aware of the local concerns about the case.
Mr. Costa said: “The heinous crime of Colin Pitchfork is understandable in the memory of many of my voters for a long time, and his case still attracts considerable attention from residents of South Leicestershire.
“Given that he was recently referred for a parole review, I am pleased to meet with the CEO of the Parole Board and get a better understanding of the Pitchfork case in order to inform me of the next steps I will take on this matter.
“Of course, the safety and well-being of my voters is the most important thing, so I want to make sure that the parole board fully understands Pitchfork’s crimes and his character before making any decisions.”
