RE: Mark Lugo – CDC# E-14658
Parole Hearing Date: March 8, 2018

Dear Chairman and Parole Board Member~

As you are aware, a parole hearing date was, once again, granted for the above-referenced inmate. I would like to state for the record that I strongly oppose a release to parole. I am respectfully requesting that you deny granting parole to convicted murderer Mark Lugo for the following reasons:

I believe he continues to pose a dire threat to society. His violent history clearly demonstrates a high propensity for violence/murder. This is evidenced by his past acts of animal cruelty/killing, culminating with a brutal and senseless murder of an innocent mother of two young children. Enid (Eydie) Ruth Lopez ended her short-term relationship with Lugo, because she did not want her children exposed to alcohol and drug abuse. After weeks of harassing Eydie, Lugo’s sense of entitlement peaked. He then planned and carried out a premeditated execution of Miss Lopez. This murder involved entering the victim’s vehicle and the use of a makeshift garrote (hanger), which he used to strangle Eydie. This savage attack did not convince him of her death, so he proceeded to use his pocket knife to slit her throat. Lugo fled his scene of crime; Eydie’s lifeless, bleeding body still seated behind the wheel of her car with the garrote around her neck. What kind of person could commit such a heinous act upon another human being? A psychopath.

Again, I respectfully request you review this matter and come to the same conclusion that Enid Ruth Lopez’s family and friends have held since her brutal and senseless murder. Anymore today, the only people serving life sentences are those who have lost loved ones to murder.

Thank you for your consideration.
