Our family is extremely relieved to report that Christopher Alexander, still assessed at a ‘MODERATE RISK TO REOFFEND’, has once again been ‘DENIED’ both day and full parole. All other unescorted leaves have been suspended for two months pending further clarification/submissions requested by the National Parole Board of Canada.
Our family is very appreciative of the over whelming support we received from individuals Canada wide and beyond, as well as the many Northern BC businesses who hosted our hardcopy petitions. We surpassed previous totals with over 5600 signatures.
The support being shown for our and other families’ petitions is growing and indicative of society’s outrage and their loss of confidence in our criminal justice system. The common thread being concern for the safety of our communities and holding those who commit despicable acts against other human beings accountable for their actions.
With the passing of Bill C-10 Alexander cannot apply for parole for one year (as opposed to five months as previously legislated) If Alexander applies when eligible, the next parole hearing will be scheduled for December 2014.
Again, our thanks to you for supporting our family’s endeavor to protect our communities and allowing our loved one, Linda, to continue to have a voice. We hope we can count on your support if and or when he applies again.
Our voices ‘were’ heard...... and together, ‘WE DID’ make a difference.
Our sincere and heartfelt appreciation.
The LeFranc Family
The LeFranc family finds itself in a position to once again ask for your support. Denied parole for the third time in January of 2012, we are disheartened to say that Christopher Maurice Alexander has again applied for parole and must be reviewed by the Parole Board in June 2013. We continue our fight to ensure that our loved one Linda LeFranc, brutally murdered December 9, 1998, continues to have a voice and that convicted murderer Christopher Maurice Alexander, sentenced in 2002, remains incarcerated for his heinous crime. Should parole be granted, Alexander could be released back into society as early as July 2013.
Alexander, 17 at the time, broke into Linda Le Franc’s ‘locked’ home at 4:00 a.m. in the morning. Linda, awakened from the couch, was stabbed 83 times and left to be discovered by her seven-year-old daughter when she awoke that morning. Our intent is not to exploit or sensationalize Linda’s death but to justify our extreme concern and our continued position that Christopher Alexander remains a serious threat to public safety and should never be released.
Our judicial system is seriously flawed with offender’s rights taking precedence over the rights of society. We must do what we can to pressure those who are in a position to implement change. Please help us send a clear message to the National Parole Board and government officials, criminals must be held accountable for their actions. Christopher Maurice Alexander must be held accountable and we must do everything in our power to ensure that he is never able to harm another individual as he did Linda.
Overwhelmed by the support shown for our fight for justice and the safety of our communities, we are very thankful to all those that supported our past efforts by signing our online and hardcopy petitions. We strongly believe that the petitions previously presented to the National Parole Board had a significant impact on the decision to deny Alexander parole.
Thank you in advance for your support. Collectively we ‘have’ and can continue making a difference.
Our sincere appreciation,
The LeFranc Family
