There is no good reason why Hill was not executed years ago for the murder of 12-year-old Raymond Fife. The 1985 torture, sexual assault and murder of Raymond was one of the most brutal crimes in Warren Oh's history.
On Sept. 10, 1985, Hill, then 18, and Timothy Combs, then 17, pounced on Raymond as he rode his bicycle through the woods behind a supermarket off Palmyra Road. Over the period of an hour, Raymond was beaten and kicked, his pleas for mercy were ignored, he was sexually assaulted multiple times, he was choked and brutalized with a stick. Hill was left alone with him while Combs went to the store for lighter fluid that was used to set the boy afire. Witnesses reported hearing cries of pain coming from the woods during that time.
Raymond was left for dead, but he was still breathing when his father, Isaac, found him. He died two days later of injuries so varied and severe that Trumbull County Coroner Dr. Joseph Sudimack Jr. could not pinpoint a single injury as the cause of death.
Raymond would have turned 45 years old this past January 27th, and no doubt would have brought many years of fun, joy, laughs, and goodness to his family and the world.
Danny Lee Hill has sat on death row for many years. On February 3, 2018, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals has issued a ruling that Danny Hill should not be executed because he is deemed to be mentally retarded. I am outraged that his beautiful mother Mariam Fife and his siblings will never see justice. The attorney general can choose to appeal this decision . Please appeal with us to Mike DeWine, Ohio Attorney General, to appeal this decision removing Danny Lee Hill from death row.
