“It’s such an emotional roller coaster going into a hearing such as this.”
As she gets ready to endure yet another parole hearing Thursday, the sister of a murder victim says it’s time to stop horrific process for families.
It’s Christopher Alexander’s sixth parole hearing in seven years.
He stabbed 36 year old Linda LeFranc 83 times in her Terrace home in 1998.
Her sister Anita Johnstone has been fighting his parole for years.
“The emphasis is on victims being able to move forward and heal, and it’s very difficult to do that when you’re facing this every year as it is the offender’s right to apply. Even though they have mandatorily need to be seen every two years, the offender has the right now to apply within a year after their denial.”
The family has collected 68-hundred signatures on a petition opposing Alexander’s release.
He has spent months on unescorted day passes, but Johnstone says he is dangerous.
