Thank you in advance for helping us keep Jeana's murderer in prison. (Note: update to original petition added 8/4/2017)
Dear Honorable Members of the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles:
In February 2017, the family of Jeana Melissa Walker submitted a petition and letters of protest to the Texas Board of Pardons and Parole requesting the denial of parole for offender John William McCrory TDCJ#627165. After careful review and consideration by the board, John William McCrory’s parole request was denied. We are forever grateful for your time and decision concerning this matter.
Sadly, it has come to our attention that due to the current structure of laws within the State of Texas, offender John William McCrory TDCJ#627165 will be parole eligible again within twelve months of each denial until his death or receives his release from prison. It is also our understanding there is no possibility of more than a one year set-off per eligibility date.
Until those laws are reviewed and revised, our family and friends will continue the protest of his release in perpetuity via this petition, in a dedicated effort to see that John William McCrory TDCJ# 627165 remains in prison for LIFE, in accordance with the original sentence he received and richly deserves.
Below is our original petition:
Please accept this petition as a stated request to DENY PAROLE to John William McCrory, TDCJ # 627165. John William McCrory is currently incarcerated in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice System serving a LIFE SENTENCE for INCEST.
John William McCrory became known to my family by a previous offense, his decision to rape and murder Jeana Melissa Walker on June 3, 1978. Jeana Walker was a 17 year-old girl who was loved by her family and was admired in her community. She was also our sister. During his initial trial, John William McCrory was convicted of First Degree Capital Murder and sentenced to the Death Penalty.
Due to a technical error, his murder conviction was overturned. Rather than endure the pain and suffering of another trial, our parents agreed to a plea bargain for this offender. The plea bargain was a thirty-year sentence of which he served less than ten years before being released. In 1989, approximately four months after his release from prison, he was arrested and charged with raping his own daughter, also a minor at the time of her assault.
John William McCrory is once again eligible for parole in May 2017. It is fact that John William McCrory made a personal choice to extinguish the life of a kind, trusting, and helpless teenager who had experienced car trouble on a summer evening. He also made a personal choice to change the life of his own daughter by raping her. John William McCrory must accept the consequences of these unconscionable actions. Because of his complete disregard for human life, including that of his own family, he remains a threat to all of society and must remain behind bars, where he cannot harm another innocent human being. To ensure this, we are submitting this petition to the Texas Board of Pardons & Parole. Our request is as follows:
* Deny parole for John William McCrory TDCJ # 627165
* Impose a minimum of a five year set off before this offender is eligible for parole again.
Without approval of our request, John William McCrory will be eligible for parole consideration every year for the duration of his Life Sentence. We, the undersigned, respectfully call upon the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles, to review this request and deny parole, now and in the future, for John William McCrory Texas Offender TDCJ # 627165. This offender does not deserve to enjoy the freedom or a life that he so violently took away from his victims.
Thank you for your consideration of this matter,
Jackie, Julie and Bryan Walker
Justice For Jeana
