A father still enraged over his young son’s death more than 35 years ago has vowed to kill the boy’s murderer if he is released several years early from his 40-year sentence, as now scheduled.

Michael Woodmansee, who was a neighbor of the Foreman family, killed Jason Foreman in South Kingstown in 1975 and hid the boy’s shellacked bones in his house for years.

A Department of Correction lawyer said Woodmansee earned time off for good behavior and it can be revoked only if he misbehaves.

I think the whole neighborhood should join in with this poor man.....I could tell the story of what happened in NW North Dakota in about 1936....when a couple of (white)charged murderers were er, removed from the jail and given local justice for the murder of a family (My at the time 17 yr old Uncle was accidentally present at the lynching - long story.)

Can’t they get someone to “fix” this inside the prison? Like, as in permanently?

Now that the whole world knows what is going on, some aspiring Dexter will pick up the slack.

No amount of good behavior could possibly make up for the degree of bad behavior already done. Why this monster wasn’t put to death by judicial authority is beyond me.

Yes, the dad gets to have a chance to avenge his son that he might otherwise not get.

The state maybe doing society a favor. Unfortunately the dad is announcing to the world his intentions.

I hope they go easy on this poor Dad when he’s in the joint.

I also hope he doesn’t do it.

His little son must have been something. He’s doing this as a monument to his favorite boy. Please reconsider, John.

Precisely.
In fact, you say just the opposite - - "All is forgiven... Let bygones be bygones... He paid his debt... blah blah blah."

Then you get rid of him, and don't get caught.

Special 2011 Codicil to the Code of Hammurabi:

Any cannibal who eats a man’s son and polishes up the kid’s bones is fair game for aforementioned dad to render aforementioned cannibal into room temperature status.

This creep tried to repeat his crime but the boy escaped and told the police; that’s how he got caught. I don’t understand plea bargaining down from a life sentence simply to keep the family from hearing the gory details.

“Still enraged”? If someone had killed my child 35 years ago or 350 years ago, I’d still be furious. Having said that, the system will punish him worse than the murderer if he goes through with this.

Joran Van Der Sloot has killed multiple women...he is getting 3 to 5 years in Peru for admitting guilt to murder in the first degree. He has already served 1 of those 3 to 5.

There is no justice. Why is it scumbags like this are allowed to live and kids die young and are murdered? I hope this father gets a good shot.

...I could tell the story of what happened in NW North Dakota in about 1936....

Y'know how there seems to a plague of child molestors nowadays? Yet, in my youth ('40s, '50s rural Oklahoma), you never heard of them.

I have a theory.

I suspect that whenever some local darlin' found herself the target of a molestor, the word was quietly passed among the community's fathers. And that said molestor got "taken for a ride" into the country...and never came back. I've little doubt that the adult men in our town were capable of doing such a deed.

Such effective attrition on the molestor community would've kept the population down.

NW North Dakota and NW Oklahoma aren't that far apart, culturally.
