RE: Scott Avery Fizzell – CDCR# P-42992

       Parole Hearing Date: August 1, 2018

Dear Chairman and Parole Board Member,

Please do not grant a parole date to convicted murderer, Scott Fizzell.  On the night of March 25, 1988, Fizzell entered the Modesto, California home of Debi Ann Whitlock (age 32). He brutally attacked Debi while she slept in her bed and then murdered her in the hallway outside of her 3-year-old daughter’s room.  He repeatedly stabbed her and then slit her throat.  Then he proceeded to rape her dead body and grotesquely posed her body with the murder weapon.  

Fizzell evaded law enforcement and justice until 1996. He was finally apprehended by Modesto Police Department with the help of an informant. He has never expressed remorse. His only regret is that he was caught. Fizzell took a plea bargain and was sentenced to 25 years to life with the possibility of parole.

On August 1, 2018, Debi’s family and friends must relive the horrendous events that led to her brutal murder. By reason of his complete disregard for human life, his complete lack of remorse and the unconscionable, sick nature of this crime, justice demands this convicted murderer be denied parole. His release would pose a dangerous threat to society.

Scott Fizzell made a personal choice to execute Debi Whitlock on the night of March 25, 1988; his actions were deliberate and planned. Now, he must continue to accept the consequences of his actions. He must remain behind bars so that he can never again harm another innocent human being. Debi does not get a second chance to live; she is gone forever. Therefore, Scott Avery Fizzell does not deserve a second chance or the privilege of freedom.

Please deny parole to convicted murderer Scott Fizzell for the maximum time allowed by State of California law.

Thank you for your consideration.
