Maybe he got a day pass and just cruised on over to JT for a day of bouldering?

Cosmiccragsman:

Might want to call the forensic pay and ask if Luke is eligible for parole? If so, when? Or being held until a shrink states he is no longer a danger to the community?

If you find out, you might want to post that too.

Lots of murderers (even ones once sent to death row) get paroled after 25 years (or so) in prison.

Edit ex post facto:

PSP, responding below, tries to make me look stupid; however, a lot of murderers on death row win appeals, get new trials, and then the prosecution throws in the towel on the death penalty and they get resentenced to life imprisonment, and viola, they become parol eligible and get out. I can cite a specific example if anyone doubts me.

The Sierra Madre, CA- based sheep buggers don't want to take any credit for Luke's early development, but apparently Luke was a grade-school and Boy Scout mate and could tell stories if they were so inclined.

Not sure what he was like as a teen but likely pretty much a younger version of ratshit crazy evil person he grew up to be.

"What's up stalker? "




No ElCap, not stalking him., afraid of the reverse.
Just a concerned person who knows what he was like.
We did not part on the best of circumstances.

And after hearing that someone saw him out, REAL concerned!

Man, if this guy gets out and reads this, he's going to be pissed.

Or maybe not. What's the current recividism rate in the US?

OK, I found it. It's 60% in the US.

TPW , death row prisoners don't get paroled. If released it is because they are found not guilty.

What a weird thread, I sort of have to agree with Werner. Just my two cents

He isn't on the Vine network either, which seems wrong. If you get thrown into the loony bin for killing grandma, you should be under the same public disclosure laws as a criminal, and not a private patient.

So Cosmic,
How did it come about that this guy lived with you and what was it like? I'm really curious.

"Whatever Happened to Luke Skywalker" is from Greg Childs book "Postcards From the Edge" and the story was published in Climbing magazine in 1998, I believe. That story as published in Climbing had a photo of the guy (Luke Strong) . I threw out my copy of that issue about 3 months ago

Raymond Goedecke, one of the Chula Vista family killers, got out on parole and married a woman he'd met through a "jailhouse romance". Not sure of the time frame, but once out, he killed his wife and went back to prison where he died.

Joe Morse, the first CV family killer, on the other hand, killed a trustee not long after he was jailed in a dispute over cigarettes. He's still alive and writes and edits the prison inmates newslettter.

They never seemed to get that lovin' feeling we hear about.

Yeah, Linfield and Luke, did a few FAs together, Jim Thoen also.
I don't think Linfield parted on good terms with Luke either.

CosmicCragsman - Jim Thoen and I use to climb together in a group from the San Diego area in late 70's. I've been trying to find a mutual friend, Ken Marsh. If you're in contact with Jim, please pass this on.

Thanks, Russ Schwartz

I haven't talked with Jim in quite a few years, but if I do I will let him know, Russ.

Justifiable.....only if the victim had started a political/religious thread. Too many of them and they need culling. Nurture climbing thread launchers....an endangered species, they are.
