Lennon ’s Killer Is Again Denied Parole



The New York Times:

The parole board wrote to Mr. Chapman, 59, that it had concluded that if he were to be released, he would again break the law.

“This victim had displayed kindness to you earlier in the day,” it added, “and your actions have devastated a family and those who loved the victim.”

At his previous hearing in 2012, Mr. Chapman described how Mr. Lennon had agreed on the day of the killing to autograph an album cover for him. “He was very kind to me,” Mr. Chapman said.
