On January 23, 1990, Melinda Snyder (22) was raped and murdered by Edward Cronell (23) who was the realtor for the house that Melinda was renting a room in.

Melinda had just finished college and was a teacher’s assistant. Cronell broke in the house through the lockbox on the front door. He had shown the house the week before and Melinda was home.


Cronell was convicted of murder and was sentenced to two life terms +30 years but eligible for parole after 20 years. He will have only served 27 years when he is considered for parole.


We, the undersigned STRONGLY OPPOSE parole for Edward Cronell. Justice demands he serve the full prison term of life given to him at the time he was sentenced for this heinous crime.
