    NY - Albert Fentress wants freedom after '79 cannibalism murder

    Fomer teacher admitted killing, eating student 27 years ago



    Thursday, June 22, 2006; Posted: 12:39 p.m. EDT (16:39 GMT)

    POUGHKEEPSIE, New York (AP) -- A former teacher who admitted killing a teenager and eating part of his body 27 years ago still belongs in a secured mental ward, two psychiatrists told a judge.

    Dr. Khin Myo testified Wednesday that Albert Fentress did not currently display symptoms of major mental illness but said he cannot grasp Paul Masters' murder, or why he sexually mutilated and cannibalized the young man.

    Fentress petitioned the state Supreme Court to be released from a locked prison ward in Orange County, 50 miles north of New York City.

    He was found innocent by reason of insanity in the 1979 murder and mutilation of Masters, 18.

    The middle school teacher confessed to killing Masters after the youth wandered into his yard. Fentress lured him into the basement, tied him to a post, sexually abused and mutilated him, and shot him twice in the head before cooking and eating parts of his body.

    Fentress had lived in a nonsecure psychiatric hospital in Suffolk County until 2002, when he admitted sexually abusing two young boys years before.

    Myo said Fentress cannot describe that abuse or the killing. "If he can't remember it, or talk about it, he isn't dealing with it," Myo said.

    The psychiatrist and Dr. Muthaiah Chandrasekahara, who both evaluated Fentress, contend he suffers from sexual sadism and pedophilia.

    The hearing was to resume July 6.

    What am I supposed to say? Is this a glitch? No, IMO, it is a lifestyle where there is a predator and in this case, it is a predicator to what his future and anyone who crosses his path is destined to.Keep his sorry ass in prison and not segregated let the maggots feed on this contemtable(sp) human being.

    How many more? My count is lost now.

    If they ever let this monster out, which I honestly don't think they will, he would not even be monitored. He was found not guilty by reason of insanity therefore is not a convicted sex offender. Scary.

    This is a "no-brainer", judging by his past deeds...They need to lock him up and throw away the key! Those in charge need to tell him that a 4 by 6 is the only freedom he'll ever know. I don't understand how he's able to petition for release every two years....

    We're all familiar with the case of Andrea Yates and a great majority of us believe she is insane and should be in a mental hospital. Once either a judge or a jury agrees with that punishment and the defendant is remanded to a mental hospital, its with the caviat that it will be "until they are no longer a danger to themselves or others." Usually, that is NEVER. However, in order to keep to the letter of the law, the court must every once in a while take a look at these prisoners/patients to see how they are.
