DAILYKENN.com -- A 16-year-old black boy strangled his girlfriend to death in 1976.
Susan Jacobson, a white girl, was only 14-year-old when she died at the hands of Dempsey Hawkins.
The convicted killer was born in London but migrated to New York City where the murder occurred.
Now 57-years-old, Hawkins was recently released by a parole board, but only on the condition that he be deported back to the United Kingdom.
He now walks the streets in Great Britain a free man.
Not everyone is pleased with the arrangement. Among those is Barbara Reno. Reno is the sister of the murdered teen who, by our calculations would be 54-years-old had she not been murdered.
According to thesun.co.uk:
“I think he’s very capable of killing again. “I pray that I’m wrong, that he’s changed and that will make something positive with his life because my sister never got the chance to lead hers. But I’m very fearful that he’ll commit another crime. “He has a bad soul. He has lied and manipulated from day one. While he was in prison he spun a ‘woe is me’ sob story, as if it was some kind of love story and he was heartbroken. “He was a very convincing liar. He had us all fooled for so long. “We’re concerned about the safety of the people in the community he’s been released into.” Family friend and retired NYPD cop Mark Corrao added: “This man has been dumped on you people. The family feel powerless. Everyone in the UK should be alerted and know what happened.”
