As if I don’t have enough pending updates to do already I was looking for possible MP updates on online databases of prison inmates today. (Florida’s is particularly good.) I found one for Genevieve Munoz, an eighteen-year-old high school senior who disappeared from Biloxi, Mississippi June 1994, leaving behind a three-month-old son. In 2009, the father of her baby was convicted of killing her. He was barely eighteen years old at the time, actually slightly younger than Genevieve, but he already had two other kids by another woman.

According to his entry with the Mississippi Department of Corrections, the murderer’s name is spelled Micheal, not Michael as I’d thought. He was sentenced to twenty years in prison, not fifteen as I have in Genevieve’s casefile. And…he’s up for release in 2014. After serving a whopping five years of his twenty-year sentence! He admits he either shot or stabbed that poor girl, the mother of his baby son. He supposedly threw her body away like so much trash.

I hope that “tentative release date” stays “tentative” and he does not, in fact, get paroled in 2014. Twenty years was little enough as it was. Five is a farce.

    just because he is eligible for early release, doesn’t mean he’ll get it. After serving one third of the sentence he can apply for parole, but if they determine he’s still a danger, they can deny him. I don’t think he will get parole this time.

    In my opinion, if he is doesn’t cause any problems in the prison and does the remorse thing, the parole board will let him out on his third parole hearing. If he isn’t causing problems, but isn’t that good an actor, then he might serve 10-12 years.

    Genevieve’s family could make a scene and that sometimes sways parole boards.

    Off topic- well different convicted killer anyway – have you heard that Shermantine is hinting that the 3rd body in that well was a pregnant African American lady? Supposedly that Padilla guy has narrowed it down to 2 names but I haven’t found anywhere where he gives the names. I’m not sure what years Shermantine and his cohort were active or if Oakland was part of their hunting grounds but could it be Toni Clark? There are so many possible scenarios of what happened to her and this is probably a real long shot.

    Genevieve, the girl who was murdered, is my sister. Here’s an update on her killer… He was released(paroled) the day before christmas this year. Our family is LIVID! He was ordered to serve 20 years DAY FOR DAY. How did this happen? Don’t ask me or our family. We can’t get any straight answers from ANYONE!
