Deny Parole For Child Killer Jesse D Anderson

In the early hours of June 14, 1994, Jesse D Anderson, home alone with the child, claimed he entered the bedroom of one-year old Marie Justus Carter and hit her in the chest with his hand, one time, to stop her from crying. He claimed Marie then stopped crying, rolled over, and went to sleep.

In fact, Jesse D Anderson so viciously attacked Marie, her stomach, diaphragm, and esophagus ruptured. Her ribs were torn away from her spinal cord. Her chest was caved in, and her eye was cut, bleeding, and swollen shut. Blunt force injuries were found on her head, chest, back, stomach, and limbs. Marie did not, in fact, stop crying and go to sleep. This tiny and completely defenseless toddler was crying so hard during this ruthless beating, tears were found in her damaged esophagus and stomach.


These facts alone should ensure Jesse D Anderson serve every day of his 60-year prison sentence. Upon his sentencing, Special Judge Stephanie Roth was clear that anything less than the maximum 60 years would negate the seriousness of his crime.


Jesse D Anderson has shown no remorse and, in fact, denies what he did to Marie.


Instead of celebrating a fun second birthday with gifts, loved ones, and a messy cake, Marie spent her second birthday in the ground, in a coffin so tiny, a young child would have been able to grasp it by both ends.


Marnie Stuller (later Price) was Marie’s mother. She passed away in December of 2003 and is not here to speak for herself. We, the undersigned, are here to object to the parole of Jesse D Anderson.


Please do not gamble the safety of any child on Jesse D Anderson’s freedom. Please do not forget what he did to Marie Justus Carter, and please, value the absolute savagery she suffered as something so unacceptable, parole for Jesse D Anderson must be denied.


Thank you,
The Undersigned
