Emma Thompson . .. .


Emma in a field of bluebonnets on Easter Sunday, 4/12/09. It was Emma's last
Easter on earth! She was barely 4 years old.

The second pic is of Emma in December, 2008. The little pink robe was one
of Emma's many Christmas presents. It was Emma's last Christmas on earth.

The third pic is Emma Thompson's tombstone! The back of the tombstone has
THOMPSON on it.

Emma . . . gone . . . but never, ever forgotten!

ABIGAIL YOUNG parole review - 2021


EMMA THOMPSON - daughter of Abigail Young and deceased victim - brutal, horrific rape and beaten to death at the age of 4 years old!

Excellent report by Mycah Hatfield - Reporter with KTRK (ABC) - Houston, TX! Put together very well, Mycah!

Special thanks to Mycah Hatfield for this important coverage re Abigail Young's parole review!

This is the segment that appeared on KTRK (ABC) News - Houston, TX at 5 p.m.; 6 p.m. ; and 10 p.m. on Tuesday, 3/23/21.

It is 3:14 (3 minutes 14 seconds).


The entire emotional interview with Laurie Thompson, Emma Thompson's paternal grandmother, is also embedded within the article.

It is over 38 minutes. Excellent interview with Laurie and most informative!

Snipped:

SPRING, Texas (KTRK) -- Year after year, the father and paternal grandparents of a 4-year-old killed by her mother's boyfriend are forced to relive the horrendous details.
Emma Thompson died in Spring in June 2009. Investigators said at the time of her death, Emma had a skull fracture, more than 80 bruises, cuts on her head, evidence of blunt force trauma to her abdomen and a severed pancreas. The medical examiner also found evidence of sexual assault.

Snipped:

Emma's mother's boyfriend, Lucas Coe, was sentenced to life without parole for the preschooler's death.
Her mother, Abigail Young, was found guilty of reckless endangerment of a child by omission for concealing what was happening to her child from family, doctors and CPS.
"She delayed taking Emma's lifeless body out to her car," Thompson said. "She bleached the tub, the faucets, the drains, the walls, the doors. She washed Emma's body."

The following is a Link to an interview that KTRK (ABC) - Houston, TX did with Laurie Thompson, Emma Thompson's paternal grandmother.

The interview took place on Tuesday, 3/23/21. It is a raw interview and is 38:23.

I Listened to Tricia's live this morning on my way to work. I'm heartsick that Emma died such a horrible death and very, very , angry at her egg donor who stood by and watched it happen. It's unfathomable!!

My letter will be sent today. Thank you to anyone from WS who takes the time to support justice for Emma. This woman absolutely cannot be released and allowed the opportunity to be around anyone's children.

Parole for Abigail Elizabeth Young DENIED as of 5/27/21!

I received an e-mail from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice - IVSS. They indicated parole has been denied for Abigail Elizabeth Young.

Snipped:

This is to notify you that the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles on 5/27/2021 denied the release to supervision for this offender until the next review date of 5/1/2022. You will be notified when this offender is placed in the review process which will be approximately two to four months prior to the next review date.
~~~~~~~ End of Snip ~~~~~~~

Usually within two (2) days of formal notification, the Texas Department of Criminal Justice will update Abigail Elizabeth Young's parole status and indicate the reasons the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles denied Young parole.

However, being it is a holiday weekend, the update might not happen until early next week.
When Abigail E. Young's parole status is updated and the reasons why she was denied parole is indicated, I will post it here!

I want to thank everyone, from all over the world, who took the time to write a letter to the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles and request that parole be denied for Abigail E. Young.

Your letters are critical in parole opposition for Abigail E. Young. The Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles (TBPP) are required, by Texas law, to read every letter that has been received and put into Abigail E. Young's file. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.

For your info, Laurie Thompson, Emma Thompson's paternal grandmother and the Thompson family spokesperson testified in front of the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles in Austin, TX on Tuesday, 5/25/21.

Emma Thompson's maternal aunt and Abigail E. Young's sister, Amanda Young Mathews, testified in front of the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles in Austin, TX on Wednesday, 5/26/21. One other maternal family member also testified. And no . .. it was not the maternal grandmother!

Without any doubt, it takes a team effort to be successful in parole opposition. Not just one person but people from all over the world, testimony from family members in front of the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles and very importantly Abigail Elizabeth Young herself! Her behavior in prison since her last review, among other things, is considered when the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles make their decision.

Once again, thank each and everyone of you for taking your valuable time to write a letter opposing parole for Abigail E. Young! It is greatly appreciated!

No parole for Abigail E. Young is continued justice for barely 4-year-old Emma Thompson who was brutally raped and murdered in 2009!

Abigail E. Young should serve all 20 years of her sentence!

~~~ Justice for Emma Thompson prevails! ~~~

Remembering Emma Thompson . . .

Today, Sunday, June 27, 2021, it is 12 years since Emma Thompson went to Heaven on the wings of an angel.

Emma died a brutal, horrific death at the age of barely 4 years old.

Precious Emma was brutally raped and beaten to death by Lucas R. Coe, the live-in boyfriend and lover of her mother, Abigail Elizabeth Young.

~~~~~

In loving memory of precious Emma Thompson . . .

Gone . . . but never, ever forgotten!

Soar high with the angels, sweet Emma and walk hand in hand with Jesus.

The "Justice For Emma Thompson" page was created by Cathy aka LCoastMom, a close personal friend and a very active child's advocate from California. Sadly, LCoastMom, who was a very active member of Websleuths, passed away a few years ago due to cancer.

It was Emma's last Easter on earth! <3

ABIGAIL ELIZABETH YOUNG - in parole review status - 1/4/2022

As of January 4, 2022, Abigail Elizabeth Young is in parole review status per the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) - Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles (TBPP).

She has served almost 11 1/2 years of a 20 year sentence.

Serving a little over half of her sentence is NOT justice for barely 4 year old Emma Thompson, Young's child, who was brutally raped and beaten to death by Young's live in lover/boyfriend, Lucas Coe, on June 27, 2009.

Serving almost 11 1/2 years of a 20 year sentence is unacceptable and it is not justice for the brutal, horrific rape and beating death of Abigail Elizabeth Young's barely 4-year-old daughter, Emma Thompson!

Emma was pronounced dead at a hospital in The Woodlands, TX on 6/27/09. Per trial testimony in a State District Court - Houston, Harris County, TX, it was the day that Lucas Coe sexually abused, raped and beat barely 4-year-old Emma Thompson to death.

In September, 2010, Abigail Elizabeth Young's live-in boyfriend/lover, Lucas Coe, was found guilty and he is serving "Life without the possibility of parole" at a Texas Department of Criminal Justice prison in the brutal, horrific rape and beating death of precious Emma Thompson.

Abigail Elizabeth Young, a well educated Registered Nurse at the time of Emma Thompson's death, did nothing to protect her precious daughter, Emma Thompson (per trial testimony).

For your info, on 7-12-10, Abigail Elizabeth Young was found guilty of causing injury to a child by omission, but the jury found that she did so recklessly rather than knowingly and intentionally. Unfortunately, it was the lesser charge. Had it been knowingly and intentionally, Young could have been sentenced to Life in Prison without Parole.

It is imperative that Abigail Elizabeth Young is not granted parole in 2022! Serving about 11 1/2 years for the brutal, horrific rape and beating death of her precious daughter, Emma Thompson, who was barely 4-years-old is unacceptable and it is NOT justice for Emma! Abigail Elizabeth Young should serve all 20 years!

Please be a voice for barely 4-year-old Emma Thompson! Please write a letter to the Texas Board of Pardons & Paroles (TBPP) and request that they deny parole for Abigail Elizabeth Young.

You do NOT have to be a citizen of Texas or the United States to write a letter and oppose parole for Abigail Elizabeth Young.

In the past when Abigail Elizabeth Young was up for parole review, supporters from all over the world for "Justice for Emma Thompson" chose to be a voice for little, precious Emma Thompson. They wrote letters to the TBPP and asked that parole be denied for Abigail Young.

Every letter has to be read by the TBPP board members who are reviewing Abigail Elizabeth Young for parole.

Your letter is important and it will be read by every TBPP member who is reviewing Abigail Elizabeth Young for parole in 2022.

The many letters that have been written during past parole reviews for Abigail Elizabeth Young were instrumental in Young's parole being denied! Other factors are considered but the letters were very instrumental in her parole being denied.

Your letter can be as detailed as you choose to write it or as simple as, "I oppose parole for Abigail Elizabeth Young."

For your info, the following are the reasons why TDPP denied Young parole in 2021:

Last Parole Decision:

Denied on 05/27/2021


DMS (05/2022)- Deny release to Discretionary Mandatory Supervision and set for next review.

Denial reason(s): 9D1, 9D2, 2D

9D1 DISCRETIONARY MANDATORY SUPERVISION - THE RECORD INDICATES THAT THE OFFENDER'S ACCRUED GOOD CONDUCT TIME IS NOT AN ACCURATE REFLECTION OF THE OFFENDER'S POTENTIAL FOR REHABILITATION.

9D2 DISCRETIONARY MANDATORY SUPERVISION - THE RECORD INDICATES THAT THE OFFENDER'S RELEASE WOULD ENDANGER THE PUBLIC.

I have permission from Laurie Thompson, Emma Thompson's paternal grandmother and the Thompson family spokesperson, to share her post from her Facebook page which she posted on Thursday, 1/13/22.

Please write a letter to the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles opposing parole for Abigail Elizabeth Young. Please do so as soon as possible. The details are in Laurie's post.

Laurie Thompson appreciates and is thankful to every one who writes a letter opposing parole for Young. She appreciates you being a "voice for her precious granddaughter, Emma". <3

Just when I was ready to wish everyone "Happy New Year", I received the disappointing news that convicted felon, Abigail Young is AGAIN eligible for consideration of parole. Abigail Young's parole review is in full swing and we need as much support as possible protesting her eligibility for parole. A decision will be announced in April.
In 2010 she received a 20 year sentence and in the name of justice, it is only right for her to serve her sentence in its entirety.

To this day, she continues to deny her complicity and refuses to acknowledge any accountability in her 4-year-old daughter (Emma's) brutal physical and sexual assault resulting in her death.

Young has NEVER once expressed any remorse.

The Texas Board of Pardons and Parole cited the following reasons for her parole being denied in 2020: (CAPS are from the official TDCJ page)

"Denial reason(s): 2D, 9D1, 9D2:
2D:

NATURE OF OFFENSE - THE RECORD INDICATES THE INSTANT OFFENSE HAS ELEMENTS OF BRUTALITY, VIOLENCE, ASSAULTIVE BEHAVIOR, OR CONSCIOUS SELECTION OF VICTIM'S VULNERABILITY INDICATING A CONSCIOUS DISREGARD FOR THE LIVES, SAFETY, OR PROPERTY OF OTHERS, SUCH THAT THE OFFENDER POSES A CONTINUING THREAT TO PUBLIC SAFETY.

9D1:
DISCRETIONARY MANDATORY SUPERVISION - THE RECORD INDICATES THAT THE OFFENDER'S ACCRUED GOOD CONDUCT TIME IS NOT AN ACCURATE REFLECTION OF THE OFFENDER'S POTENTIAL FOR REHABILITATION.

9D2:
DISCRETIONARY MANDATORY SUPERVISION - THE RECORD INDICATES THAT THE OFFENDER'S RELEASE WOULD ENDANGER THE PUBLIC."

Clearly, neither the nature of the crime NOR Abigail Young's culpability have changed since Emma's death. She continues to pose a clear and present danger to the people of Texas.

Your letter does not need to be long or detailed; it can be just one or 2 sentences but the following information MUST be included in either your subject line and/or the text of your letter:

Offender: Young, Abigail Elizabeth
State ID# 08428403
TDCJ #: 01668233

The email address for your letter is:

[email protected]

On behalf of Emma and in her memory, we thank you.

Emma Thompson touched the heart of many members at Websleuth's They followed Emma's horrific story (brutal rape and beaten to death, at age 4, by Lucas Ruric Coe) as it unfolded in mainstream media . . . including the trials of Lucas Ruric Coe and Abigail Elizabeth Young.

Without a doubt, Emma Thompson captured the heart of many people worldwide!
