John Lennon’s Killer, Mark David Chapman, Denied Parole for 11th Time
The eleventh time was no charm for Mark David Chapman, the man who murdered John lennon … his request for parole was again rejected.
The infamous killer had another interview with the Parole Board last week in New York City, and just like his previous 10 attempts … the Board was not moved.
Chapman will now have to wait 2 years before he can get another hearing with the Commission … he is expected to appear again in August 2022.
He was last denied parole in 2018 because the Board determined his release would be “incompatible with the well-being and safety of society”.
He was given much the same reason in 2016 and 2014, but his requests for release date back to 2000. There was no explanation this time around… at least, until now.
Lennon was shot and killed by Chapman on December 8, 1980 while entering Dakota near Central Park, where he lived. Earlier that evening, Lennon had signed a book for Chapman.
Chapman pleaded guilty to second degree murder the following year and was sentenced to 20 years of life.
Our sincere thanks to
