Perhaps you’ve heard of Richard Speck. He’d murdered eight nurses, in Chicago, in 1965. He was caught, tried, convicted. Sentenced to death. In 1972, The Supreme Court decided that capital punishment was “cruel and unusual punishment”. All death sentences were commuted to Life Imprisonment. In Illinois, Speck became eligible for parole in 1976. In Bad Blood, Wessley H. Burleson kills “only” four stewardesses — and rapes a fifth. He is caught, tried, convicted. Sentenced to death. His sentence also becomes life. When his case comes up, he is granted parole. He leads the authorities on a merry chase — leaving a deadly path of human debris in his wake.
