    The Corona case is the first serial killer-related story where I can remember live "breaking news!" features being used to interrupt scheduled evening programming nationally, as more bodies were discovered.

    Serial killer Juan Corona is denied parole a seventh time
    Juan Corona, originally convicted of killing 25 migrant workers in 1973, is 77 and has dementia. He won't be eligible for another hearing for five years.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Corona was denied parole for another five years. Since he's 82 now, hopefully he won't be around for another parole hearing. I can't even believe his sentence included the possibility of parole but he was sentenced in the early 80's and it seems sentences were much more lax back then.
