Joseph James NYSID# 03089100H
To Div. of Parole -- 3/18/10 -- From Kelly McGlyn:
My husband and I have recently given birth to a baby boy. We named him Bradan George to honor my Grandfather. Bradan would have been George's first Great Grandchild. As I have never had the opportunity to meet my grandfather, Bradan George has also been robbed of the joy of meeting his Great Grandfather . . . Joseph James is the murderer of my Grandfather, my sonís Great Grandfather, my Motherís Father, my Fatherís Father-in-Law, and my Grandmotherís Husband. . . .One can see the loss this murderer has caused . . . I ask that this robber of life never ever be granted parole. . . . He does not deserve to be free.
