Does anyone believe he quit raping for 30 years? I think they need to start checking when he moved to SC and what he has been doing while living there.A parole review date is set for July 21, 2012 for Fred Howard Coffey.
Coffey was convicted of the murder of 10 yr old Amanda Marie Ray, NC. He admitted to molesting 300 children.
Please write a letter on behalf of Amanda.
Suspect in the murders of:
5 yr old Neely Smith, NC
14 yr old Kathy Lynn Beatty, MD
8 yr old Travis Shane King, VA
Possibly connected to the disappearances of:
14 Yr old Tracy Anne King, PA
11 yr old Sheila and 13 yr old Katherine Lyons, MD
15 yr old Carolyn Majane, NJ

Cool! DNA will getcha, every time. Imagine the sinking feeling this guy had when the police told him what he was being arrested for.

I love news like this!

I wonder if this is the same Jerry Lee Brooks. If it is, he might have spent time in prison and that might be the reason he stopped the rapes in Charlotte.

I hope Horry County PD and surrounding LEAs are looking into this rapist for sexual assaults and disappearances that have occured in the area since 2005.
IMO, he should be questioned in the disappearance of Brittanee Drexel.
wm...and be sure your sin will find you out.

I hope that they can trace every place he's been (not including prison).The greatest trespasser on justice still wishes it done to him.
