Description

The kidnapping and brutal slaying of a college student in Little Rock led to the discovery that the suspect, an eight-time parole violator, had been released from jail just hours before the murder. That story and subsequent follow-ups and investigative pieces led to the abrupt retirement of the parole system's leader; three separate investigations, including one conducted by the Arkansas State Police; a series of legislative hearings; and numerous policy reforms.
