    Fred Coffey, New Parole Date July 2015

    PAROLE HAS BEEN DENIED to convicted child killer, Fred Howard Coffey Jr.

    He won't be moving into the house next door any time soon.

    The following is from Amanda Ray's mother:


    Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts to those of you who took the time to send a letter to the parole board on Amanda's behalf.

    Fred H. Coffey will remain behind bars for another three years. He will come up for possible parole again in July 2015.

    I spoke with his case analyst and she assured me that she read every letter that was sent in (received over 100) and that they were each taken into consideration when making the decision.

    We will need your help again in 2015 and our goal is to get MANY more than 100 letters sent... Let's send THOUSANDS!!With deepest gratitude,

    Jennifer Ray

    A parole review date is set for July 21, 2015

    Fred Howard Coffey Jr. is again up for Parole. His case will be considered on 1 May 2015.

    Coffey has been discussed on Websleuths as a potential suspect in the Lyon Case and others. He was convicted of kidnapping and murdering Amanda Ray(10), and is the only suspect in the murders of Travis Shane King (age 8) and Neely Smith (5).

    He has been denied parole on every occasion over the past 20 years (since 1995).

    Coffey just turned 70 years old on 20 March.

    Since his last hearing in 2012, Coffey has had only one infraction - For a "sexual act".

    Anyone who wishes can write a letter to the North Carolina Parol Board with their recommendations for or against him receiving parole.
