“Update: PAROLE DENIED. The parole of child murderer Jonathan Anders has been denied. Anders will not have another hearing until February 2018. Thank you to everyone who submitted a petition to block this parole.”
This is the headline over the Block Parole case of Jonathan Anders, a man who brutally stabbed little nine-year-old Louise Goode so forcefully that the knife went all the way through her body. He also sliced off the ear of Louise’s sister-in-law, Rose, who had recently given birth to a baby. Louise was so exited to visit her big brother, Earrie so that she could meet baby Noel.
Anders broke into the home of Earrie and Rose and killed Louise, then attacked Rose and finally, Earrie. Bleeding profusely from her severed ear and other injuries, Rose was able to get help at a neighbor’s home.
Anders was positively identified as the attacker and arrested. He answered police with just a few words when they asked why he killed the nine-year-old child. He said it was because “I felt like it.”
Recently up for parole, as stated in an earlier article, efforts were underway by Block Parole and others to keep Anders incarcerated by encouraging citizens to contact the Ohio Parole Board to object to Anders being granted parole. He recently was scheduled to go before the State of Ohio Parole Board in February. Many individuals may be happy to hear that the parole of Jonathan Anders was successfully blocked. The State of Ohio Adult Parole Board, based in Downtown Columbus Ohio, denied his request for parole. Anders will not be eligible for parole again on his 22 years to life imprisonment sentence until February 2018.
