This man was sentenced to 24 years in prison in 2000 for the same crime but was eligible for release after 85 percent of that sentence was served. If he had serve his full sentence, this lady would still be alive. The justice system has failed us once again.

The state needs to start being held accountable for their incompetence
some criminals should not be released ever.

So sad, prayers to her family. Please be aware of your surroundings guys. I know some things happen in broad day light, but if you can help it ladies don't be out at night or wee hours in the morning alone. THIS SHOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED TO HER. PRAYERS AND PEACE TO HER FAMILY
Murders should never be released from prison! They should all get the death penalty within 72 hours of the verdict! Not 27 years later! That's not justice!

This country goes out of it's way to keep these evil monsters, sadistic killers of innocent people, alive. This BS needs to stop.

RIP young lady. Condolences to your loved ones(family and friends). This criminal got out in 2020 after 30 years behind bars, only to re-offend and repeat the same crime, this time, taking the life of an innocent woman. Please throw the book at this creep!

Kidnapping with physical injury, including sexual assault, to the victim needs to be a crime punishable by the death penalty. In those states where the death penalty is not an option, it should be life without parole. It’s one thing to parole someone for theft of property, but those who are a proven danger to people should be high on the list of people the citizenry needs to be protected from in a more permanent manner.
I think it's sad that people want to accuse the husband when there isn't any proof at this time that he was involved. I think it was unfortunately just being in the wrong place at wrong time. I feel so sorry for her family.

Sometimes criminals fall through the cracks and get out due to overcrowding. They don't properly check the records of every inmate they release and that's messed up

It's extremely disappointing and devastatingly sad, but humanity loves to destroy itself. Further, it is far, far, FAR too lenient on crime.
Why did they let him out of prison? Did they rehabilitate him? No. Just had him in prison for 20 years and let him out with no skills or abilities to take care of himself. Came right back out into society and picked up where he left off at…Now put him back in prison, so he doesn’t do any harm to anyone else. God bless this family.
It's almost like there's a pattern to this criminal's behavior. When are judges and DA gonna start being held accountable?
Vile evil monsters in this world, it's crazy that we live with these sadistic killers most probably passing the likes of him daily on the streets. Prayers to her family and friends

If an autopsy reveals that the motivation for the crime in this case is robbery and not sexual assault, then this situation is much worse than I thought it was.
I would pay more in taxes to keep people like this behind bars so we can have a safer community and keep criminals contemplating on crimes because of the longer sentences. Resulting in an overall less crime rate 😔

Dennis Badoni:
You can bet if a Killers put to death and you told him that he has to Die the same way he killed his victim they would not like that very well but it might wake up a lot of people to think before they do a crime that's where I say a eye for an eye a tooth for a tooth

I just don't understand why she was jogging at 4:30 am? She could've joined a gym and many are open late. Then she had nothing to defend herself with.
The world is full of monsters. We can't let our guard down. Now there are 2 babies who will grow up without their mother, how very sad.

Sadly, there’s more perpetrators like him amongst us. Some are released from prison and back out on the street to continue their mayhem.

Eliza Fletcher would still be alive today if the parole officer, prosecutors, and judge did their job. Cleotha Abston arrested on 06/27/2022 violation of parole, SHOULD HAVE BEEN SENT BACK TO PRISON TO FINISH HIS 20 YEAR SENTENCE which was 2024. protect your family, take out all violent super predators ask Colin Flaherty ...
Andrew Holladay
Andrew Holladay:
Cowards! Failure once again from our justice department. He should have never been released.
This crime reminds me of the same crime in San Diego County about 15 or 20 years ago. A man sees a pretty woman in shorts jogging decides to kidnap her and have her and kills her. How do we weed out these bad men. Keep them in prison for a first offense ? Kidnapping should be 40 year sentence. Our society today is too permissive.

Dam this story is tragic and heartbreaking 💔
If I was the victims husband or relatives I'd already b plotting how to get myself into 1 of his court dates Boondock Saints style
"When u look behind u and u see we 3 on that day u will reap it,and I'll send u to what ever God u wish"
Somebody ever hurt my wife or kids like that it would b game over for him and myself

There are places in the world where girls and women are safe to be alone walking or jogging in parks or in cities even late at night or early in the morning hours. Places like Russia, Japan, Korea and certain parts of Europe still for now.
All these places have one thing in common. They are not plagued and infested with these sons of worthlessness, sons of Belial.
Know your area and surroundings ladies. Unfortunately if you live in a place where these sons of Belial are a significant population, you'll have to adjust your behavior to avoid becoming one of their victims because the Government won't do what is necessary.
13 Percented. Terrible way to go.
Larry Louis
Larry Louis:
If our government would actually uphold the law, this criminal would still be in prison, but no, we are supposed to feel sorry for him, not her. Of course they will not seek the death penalty and release him early as is the left nut policy.

How the hell did they let this dangerous man out of prison to do this!?
This types of cruel shits happens everyday. So sad

20 yrs served earlier for the same thing. WTF is wrong with this judicial system. They need to get their heads out of their ass's. How many people need to suffer before justice is actually served? We should go back to the "eye for an eye era"

If you want to try to stay safe maybe think camouflage. You might not be able to pass for a man (and men get hunted and killed, too) can you Iook like you might be Law Enforcement or a 1st responder going for a walk, bike run?

A man without hope is the greatest man to fear. May as well be living in Iran, and pretty women are not safe jogging alone at 4am in the morning in the USA without the security of witnesses to keep the wolves at bay.
2 other women's bodies where found 4.4 miles away during the 2 months before Eliza went missing. Suspect had a black vehicle too I think she wasnt the 1st woman he killed by this animal only the most recent.

A sad day in America when a woman can not jog no matter your race. Her kids have no mom my heartbreaks!
I'm very confused. They only show a picture of the van, and they assume that that's the fan that took her? Where is actual footage of her being kidnapped?
Rich Fleming
Rich Fleming:
I think that this would be a wonderful opportunity to pause for a moment to give many thanks to the great contributions of the black community and how their culture has enriched our society. Their peaceful and generous nature makes them ideal neighbors, lending testimony to their exceptional family values and parenting skills, unrivaled by any other culture. Their commitment to academic excellence enriches our schools and serves as an example to all those that hope to achieve their fondest dreams and aspirations. Property and home values rise significantly by the influx of African Americans into any area due to their caring and respectful nurturing of these communities, as exemplified by the way they have helped clean up and rejuvenate the inner cities. Their presence alone leads to a dramatic decrease in the overall crime rate in the community. Without their industries and creative drive, we would be poorer as a nation.
