RE: Johnathan Grant Appley – CDCR# V56149
Parole Hearing Date: June 22, 2017
Dear Parole Board Chairman and Board Member~
Please DO NOT grant a parole date to convicted murderer, Johnathan Grant Appley. On July 13, 2003, Appley (along with two friends/co-offenders) brutally beat and strangled to death Marc Dominic Oldham (age 37).
Marc Oldham was a very friendly and outgoing man who happened to be on an annual camping trip at Bucks Lake, Plumas County, CA. He had befriended the three young men at the local Lakeshore Resort, buying them drinks, etc., typical of his generosity. He invited them up to his cabin and it was then they began laying out a plan to rob Mr. Oldham of his money. His body was later discovered on the roadway near the Lakeshore Resort.
On June 22, 2017, Marc Oldham’s family and friends will have to relive the horrendous and unconscionable events that led to his brutal murder. They will have to face the uncertainty that accompanies this parole hearing. Because of Johnathan Appley’s complete disregard for human life, sense of entitlement and complete lack of remorse, justice demands this convicted murderer be denied parole.
Marc Oldham was a warm, loving, gregarious man, who befriended everyone he met. He was loved and admired by so many friends and business associates blessed to have been able to call him “friend”. He was a very gifted, successful businessman and had an amazing future of endless possibilities and adventures ahead of him.
Johnathan Appley must be held accountable for his personal choice to beat and strangle to death an innocent man for personal gain (robbery) and must accept the consequences of his actions. Marc Oldham does not get a second chance to live; he is gone forever. Therefore, Appley does not deserve a second chance or the privilege of freedom.
Please deny parole suitability to convicted murderer Johnathan G. Appley for the maximum time allowed by State of California law.
Thank you for your consideration.
