    Blef, your letter is excellent! There is no doubt that you, like me and many others, followed this case closely.

    I know that Emma's maternal grandmother, Laurie Kuderna Thompson, and her maternal aunt and Abigail Young's sister, Amanda Young Mathews, will be most appreciative that you are still supporting justice for precious Emma Thompson.

    Websleuth's has so many members world-wide. Many wrote letters opposing Abigail Young's parole in 2013 and were instrumental in the Texas Board of Pardons & Paroles (TBPP) denying Abigail Young parole. They have to read every e-mail and letter!

    So today on this beautiful Valentine's Day I was reminded of Emma when I received my letter from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Parole Division. Though I knew it was coming up I didn't expect it today. I need your help!!!

    The letter read as follows

    2/14/2018

    RE: Offender YOUNG, ABIGAIL, State ID# 08428403, TDCJ# 01668233

    The Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) Parole Division is processing this offender's case for mandatory review by the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles on 2/13/2018. The purpose of this review is for the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles to decide whether or not to release the offender on 8/16/2018, the projected release date. The review process is normally completed within two to six months. As soon as the Board has reached a decision, we will notify you. The projected discharge date is 7/10/2030.

    In rare instances, due to the Ex Parte Retzlaff court decision, an offender being released to mandatory supervision may be released without a Board vote. Further information regarding Retzlaff cases may be obtained by visiting our website at http://www.tdcj.texas.gov/divisions/...retzlaff.html.

    We acknowledge how difficult it may be for you to write about the effects of this crime. You may submit any letters, newspaper clippings, or photographs that would help the Board of Pardons and Paroles understand how the offense has affected you. In order to ensure the Board receives your input prior to voting the case, we ask that you respond as soon as possible and reference the TDCJ or State Identification Number (SID) when submitting material. If you are a victim, the guardian of a victim, or a close relative of a deceased victim, please inform others with an interest in this offender's consideration

    Please send your letters to:

    Victim Services Division
    8712 Shoal Creek Blvd., Ste. 265
    Austin, TX 78757-6899

    Or email them to:
    Email: victim.svc@tdcj.texas.gov

    PLEASE INCLUDE:

    Offender:

    YOUNG, ABIGAIL
    State ID# 08428403, TDCJ# 01668233

    It's the very least I can do. I was horrified when I read about poor little Emma's brutal treatment, and the complete neglect of her care by Young. I can't imagine as a mother doing absolutely nothing to protect my child when she was in such obvious danger. It made me sad for Emma, but so angry at Young. I send my love to her family and hope they know that Emma is still remembered by us

    Blef is back....back again...Blef is back....Call a friend

    Looking for LCoastMom!

    Does anyone know if LCoastMom still posts at Websleuths?

    She started the Facebook page: Justice For Emma Thompson and I helped her with updates a few years ago and provided some pictures of Emma Thompson.

    Although I've posted the info about Abigail Young is up for parole review - 2018 on Justice For Emma Thompson today, the post goes to a side area titled 'Posts'. There has been no activity by LCoastMom in a few years.

    I know she was ill with cancer.

    LCoastMom is a huge child advocate and supported justice for Emma Thompson. She, like me, even commented on articles that were from the mainstream media of Abigail Young's hometown, Brenham, TX, Bryan, TX and Houston, TX.

    In 2013, after Abigail Young was denied parole with a 5 year set off, LCoastMom and I agreed to be active on Justice For Emma Thompson in 2018, ask supporters to write letters opposing Abigail Young's parole and keep Websleuth's updated.

    If anyone communicates with LCoastMom, please let her know I am 'looking for her.'

    Abigail Young - recap in 2014 by Houston TV station

    This is an excellent recap of the Emma Thompson tragedy as reported by
    Katie McCall (Katherine McCall - WTSP), a reporter/Anchor for FOX26 News - Houston, TX
    in November, 2014.

    As this story unfolded in 2009 and during the 2010 trials of Abigail Young and then Lucas Coe, Katie McCall was with KTRK News (ABC) - Houston, TX. Katie did an exceptional job of covering the Emma Thompson tragedy and the trials.

    Katie interviewed Colleen Barnett, Harris County District Attorney and lead Prosecutor in the Lucas Coe and Abigail Young trials. She also interviewed Amanda Young Mathews, maternal aunt of precious Emma Thompson and sister to Abigail Young for this update.

    Katie McCall is no longer in Houston but is currently an Anchor with WTSP - Tampa, Florida.

    I wish Katie was still in Houston!

    Andy Kahan, official City of Houston, TX Crime Victim's Advocate Facebook post

    In the past, Andy Kahan, the official Crime Victim's Advocate for the City of Houston, TX and beyond, has been a guest on Tricia Griffith's Radio Show.

    Also, precious Emma Thompson's paternal grandmother and Thompson family spokesperson, Laurie Kuderna Thompson, has been a guest on Tricia's Radio Show.

    The following was posted on Andy Kahan's Facebook Timeline and I shared it to my Facebook Timeline:

    Sharing from Andy Kahan's Facebook timeline.

    Andy Kahan is the official City of Houston and surrounding area Crime Victims Advocate.

    He will be accompanying precious Emma Thompson's paternal grandmother and Thompson family spokesperson, Laurie Kuderna Thompson, to the Texas Board of Pardons and Parole review.

    Parole Action Alert:

    On behalf of 4 year-old Emma Thompson please see the below post from Emma's Grandmother Laurie Thompson.

    We need everyone's help to keep Abigail Young who was sentenced to 20 years for Injury to a Child from being paroled.

    We passed Legislation which became known as 'Emma's Law' to add Injury to a Child to the list of offenses eligible for a maximum set-off of 5 years which is what she received in 2013.

    On behalf of Emma we deeply appreciate all your support.

    Attention all FB Friends! I desperately need your help right away.

    I just received a notice from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice that Abigail Elizabeth Young, the convicted accomplice in the beating, sexual assault and murder of my 4 year-old- granddaughter is being considered for parole this summer!! It is essential that we let the Parole Bd know we VEHEMENTLY oppose her release. She received a 20-year sentence and $10,000 fine and has served LESS THAN 8 YEARS of her sentence. Emma did NOT get a second chance at life.

    Please e-mail your letters of protest to the following address: victim.svc@tdcj.state.tx.us Your protest letter does not need to be lengthy but it MUST include her name and ID numbers: Abigail Elizabeth Young, TDCJ# 01668233, State ID# 08428403

    Every member of the Parole Board reviewing this case is required by law to read every piece of correspondence they receive. Please ask your friends, spouses, classmates, colleagues, church groups, to each send a short e-mail protesting her release! The more letters, the better the chance we have of getting her parole denied. The last time she was considered for parole, they received thousands of letters - some from Europe, Canada and Australia. You do NOT have to be a resident of Texas to send a protest letter!!

    Her last parole was denied in 2013 when we successfully convinced the Parole Bd to set her parole consideration back 5 years. She has demonstrated no remorse, continues to portray herself as a victim in the process, has been treated for known drug issues, and has no respect or regard for the constraints of common decency or law. She apparently cannot even conform to the minimal expectations of prison life since she has lost visitation privileges over 25 times just since May, 2017! PLEASE HELP! Private message me with any questions. Thanks!

    Here are two links from the time of the trial:

    Conformation from VSC Rep. with Texas Department of Criminal Justice

    This morning I called the Victim Services Division (VSC) at the Texas Department of Criminal Justice in Austin, TX.

    I spoke with a VSC representative to clarify some things. I posted the following on my Facebook Timeline:

    LETTERS OPPOSING ABIGAIL YOUNG'S PAROLE - 2018

    You do NOT have to be a Texas resident . .. any one
    in the world can write a letter opposing parole for Abigail Young!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    There is some confusion as to what e-mail address to use when you e-mail your letter(s) opposing parole for Abigail Young, the mother of barely 4 year old Emma Thompson, who was brutally raped, beaten and murdered by Lucas Coe, Abigail Young's live-in boyfriend at the time.

    This morning I called the Victim Services Division at the Texas Department of Criminal Justice in Austin, TX. I spoke with a Victim Services Representative. She said all letters opposing Abigail Young's parole should be sent as soon as possible and include the following info:

    RE: Offender YOUNG, ABIGAIL, State ID# 08428403, TDCJ# 01668233

    All letters should be e-mailed to the following address:
    victim.svc@tdcj.texas.gov

    You do NOT have to be a Texas resident. Any one in the world can send a letter opposing parole for Abigail Young.

    During the Parole Review for Young in 2013, thousands of letters were sent from all over the world opposing parole for Abigail Young.


    For your info, your letter (via e-mail) is sent to the Victim Services Division at the Texas Department of Criminal Justice in Austin, TX, USA. It is processed and then forwarded to the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles (TBPP) . .. . the Abigail Young file!

    EVERY letter is read by the TBPP members reviewing Abigail Young for parole. YOUR letter is important and it counts!


    Abigail Young was sentenced to 20 years for failure to protect her daughter, Emma Thompson.
    She has served 8 years of her 20 year sentence. She is up for parole review as of 2/14/18. It will take several months for the assigned members of the Texas Board of Pardons and Parole to review.

    Many supporters of continued justice for precious Emma Thompson are asking their Facebook friends, personal in person friends, etc. to write a letter to the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles. Please be a voice for barely 4 year old Emma Thompson who died a horrific death. Your letter can be as simple as saying, 'I oppose parole for Abigail Young." Or you can write a more detailed letter stating why you oppose parole for Abigail Young.

    Serving 8 years of a 20 year sentence is unacceptable for the death of Emma Thompson! Please be a voice for Emma and write a letter opposing parole for her mother, Abigail Young!

    Please share this to your Timeline!
    Thank you for your continued support of justice for precious barely 4 year old Emma Thompson! Thank you for being Emma Thompson's voice!

    A post from Emma Thompson's maternal aunt

    The following is a post that Amanda Young Mathews posted on her Facebook page, Emma ForJustice.

    It is a page she set up a few years ago in her efforts to seek continued support for justice for her precious niece, Emma Thompson. Amanda is also the sister of Abigail Young.


    Please "join" Emma ForJustice:

    Emma ForJustice
    Yesterday at 8:55am - February 16, 2018

    After some really ugly messages this morning I have had to block a few people from my personal FB as well as my Emma ForJustice FB. This is not an attempt for attention nor my personal way of making myself "famous". This is only an Aunt of a beautiful child needing to STAND for a cause she so rightfully believes in. You can't make this up nor would anyone like to live this nightmare as we have. But I vowed almost 9 years ago that I would NEVER stop fighting for Emma and if you think that is wrong than move on. I have a pretty amazing backbone people's negativity does sadden me however it will not break me or make me lose focus on my fight for Emma.

    Timothy 4:17 But the Lord stood by me and strengthened me, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it.

    Thank you God for showing me the light in the darkness of Emma's murder. I remember the phone call almost 9 years ago... Come quick Emma's going to the hospital it doesn't look good!

    That phone call came from the monster that rapped and beat my niece to death! She had endured so much in her last weeks of life! By midnight Emma's body would be left life less but for anyone that has read the facts she had been gone for hours before that phone call ever came my way! 12-24 hours before she would actually be pronounced gone from this world.

    I stand for child abuse awareness I stand for the voice of the child. I stand for my sweet angel Emma. And I stand for her sisters! I stand against her abusers I stand against the ones that lied and did not protect her! I stand here today happy that they were punished saddened she is gone but thankful she no longer suffers!

    I have stood up and challenged the wrong doers the name sayers the ignorant and uneducated ones that didn't read the facts. The truth is none of us will know exactly what happened that day leading up to her death but thank God for DNA and CSI facts we can say today that Emma got justice maybe not all that she deserved but enough to be proud of! Texas changed laws because of her case. That very law "The Emma Law" has been helping families get the time to heal after crime against their child and keeping offenders in prison without ability to come up for parole review every year. CPS has changed their rules and instated the "Emma Clause" which is helping us to protect children all over the state of Texas.

    I don't think I will ever quit posting these things and if you have a problem with the fact that I can't move on..then maybe you should move on! Walk a mile in my shoes for the past almost 9 years and know that I will NEVER be done sharing Emma's story everyone should know that! I will stand for her forever! I will continued to post her beautiful smile her sad story for she may be gone but never forgotten! And if me sharing her case can save one child or make one parent second guess their accountability then my fight is worth it! Rest peacefully sweet Emma Aunt Am still stands strong for you! Send us a wink my most beautiful angel. Gone but never forgotten.

    With all that being said

    Please send your letters to ask for denial of parole ASAP to:

    Victim Services Division
    8712 Shoal Creek Blvd., Ste. 265
    Austin, TX 78757-6899

    I do not know why the 3 pictures won't post. The pics are in "Preview" but when I submit this post, the pics show up as 404 - image not found.

    I would appreciate help in getting the pics posted. Anyone? Thank you in advance.

    FOX 26 NEWS - Houston, TX - 2/28/18 Update Abigail Young's parole review

    On FOX 26 News - Houston, TX Wednesday night, 2/28/18, Randy Wallace, Investigative Reporter did an update on Abigail Young being up for parole review.

    In his excellent report, Randy Wallace interviewed Laurie Thompson, precious Emma Thompson's paternal grandmother and the Thompson family spokesperson.

    Randy Wallace also interviewed Andy Kahan, who is the official Crime Victims Advocate for the City of Houston and surrounding area.

    For your info, Laurie Thompson and Andy Kahan were guests on one of Tricia Griffith's radio shows when Abigail Young was up for parole in 2013.

    Tricia Griffith, if you still do your Radio Show, you could do a great follow- up show with Laurie and Andy!

    Here is the video from FOX 26 News:

    Write a letter opposing parole for Abigail Young

    Please be a voice for precious Emma Thompson!

    Anyone in the world can write a letter opposing parole for Abigail Young.
    You do NOT have to be a Texas resident; nor a resident of the United States.

    During the Parole Review for Young in 2013, thousands of letters were sent
    from all over the world opposing parole for Abigail Young.

    Please write the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles
    and oppose parole for Abigail Young, Emma's mother.

    Abigail Young went into Parole Review status as of 2/14/18.

    Emma was barely 4 years old when she was brutally
    raped and beaten to death by her mother's live-in boyfriend Lucas Coe.
    During trial, evidence was introduced that indicated Emma was being
    sexually abused prior to the horrific rape and beating which resulted in her death.

    Emma Thompson died a brutal, horrific death!

    Emma even had a STD (venereal disease) and was only 4 years old.
    Her mother, Abigail Young and her mother's live-in boyfriend, Lucas Coe,
    both tested positive for a STD.

    Abigail Young was a Registered Nurse at the time and she did nothing to protect her
    precious daughter, Emma Thompson. Young brought Lucas Coe into her home and
    she knew Coe had a case pending in Montgomery County, TX (near Harris County).

    Abigail Young was found guilty in 2010 of reckless and serious bodily injury to a child by omission
    by a Houston jury of her peers.

    Abigail Young was sentenced to 20 years in a Texas Department
    of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) prison.


    Serving almost 8 years of a 20 year sentence is NOT justice for Emma Thompson.

    Please write a letter to the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles as soon as possible. Your letter counts! Every letter is read by those reviewing Abigail Young for parole.

    Please be certain to include the following:

    RE: Offender YOUNG, ABIGAIL, State ID# 08428403, TDCJ# 01668233

    All letters should be e-mailed to the following address:

    victim.svc@tdcj.texas.gov

    Thank you for being a voice for barely 4 years old Emma Thompson.
