On July 25th, 1999, Brandy Southworth was brutally murdered by Andrew Beckman. Brandy was 19 years old at the time, and she had a 6-month old son.
That day we lost a daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, and friend. her beautiful 6-month old son lost his mother. Brandy was a beautiful, passionate young woman and a loving mother. The world suffered a great loss once she was taken from us.
Andrew Beckman made a choice, then planned the murder of the mother of his child. This was proven in court, and the key piece of evidence of the premeditation was a letter he wrote to a friend after he was arrested. He showed no remorse, and stated he made a choice to kill her because she was turning his friends against him and he was facing jail time due to non-payment of child support.
On July 25th, 1999, he dressed in all black clothing, and came to her home with a butcher knife. He cowardly lied in wait until she was home alone with her son. Brandy was a small, petite woman. Physically, she had no chance of defending herself from the 44 severe wounds inflicted upon her with this large knife. She was brutally murdered, and her son was left alone.
Andrew Beckman showed no regard for life, nor has he shown remorse. He has a parole hearing in June, 2019. Please sign this petition to show your support for the parole board to deny his parole and grant maximum continuance, which means he would not be eligible for parole again for 10 years.
This petition and the signatures will be given to the parole board prior to his parole hearing. We hope this show of support will add weight to their decision along with the photos and impact statements being provided by family and friends.
Andrew Beckman will only be 41-years old this June. He is young enough to have the ability to do this again. Please help us protect society from this evil monster.
