Petitioning Friends of Joy Buttrey

Keep Joy's murderer, Ernest "Todd" Botelho, in prison

Please sign this petition to honor your memory of our beloved Joy D. Buttrey.  Joy was a loving, generous, wonderful young woman who was murdered in her home by Ernest "Todd" Botelho in May 2006.  He is now eligible for a parole hearing.  We need your signature on this petition asking the Maryland Parole Commissioners to deny parole--six years isn't justice, it's a joke. 

You have a voice and signing this petition makes a difference. This petition and the e-signatures will be presented to the Maryland Parole Commission and will be taken into consideration when determining whether to grant Ernest "Todd" Botelho's request for parole on June 1, 2012.

Please help us to insure that this violent criminal serves his entire sentence--not just six years.  Sign this online petition before Monday, May 15th and help us demonstrate to the Parole Commission that Joy's friends love and miss her, and that we want her killer to serve his entire sentence.

Thank you for your support.  If you have any questions, send them to
