Douglas Hinton Bell stalked his neighbor, Carol Spaete (47), brutally raped her, left and returned to her home with a gun. He fatally shot her in the head while she was desperately trying to get help on the phone. Afterward, he had a vasetomy scheduled to destroy DNA evidence. He then left his family and his job, leading investigators on a four-month chase before he could be brought to justice. Yes, 50 years is justice for this premeditated, vicious rape and murder. Imagine the horror that not only Carol Spaete went through, but also the heartbreaking impact on her loved ones every single day since they lost her in such a shocking way. What a shameful thing it would be to allow Bell to walk free after serving only 13 years* of the sentence The State of Texas saw fit to impose. What a shock it would be for the community if this was allowed to happen. Thank you for your thoughtful consideration of this petition.

*CORRECTION: That should be 23 years, not 13. I assume that was a typo on my original source material, and I apologize for the misinformation! We need to keep this campaign going now more than ever to tell the Parole Board, loud and clear, that it is NOT ACCEPTABLE to release Douglas Hinton Bell for this brutal, cold-blooded crime when he hasn't even served half the sentence the State of Texas imposed.
