WHERE ARE THEY NOW DEPT:
After seeing how popular the parody of Eddie O'Brien / Howie Carr was on this media outlet, it begged the question, what is going on with convicted murderer Eddie O'Brien?
It seems he could be up for parole. How hideous, especially in the manner in which his victim was killed (think the Bishop in the film PRIMAL FEAR where Richard Gere defends psychopath / fake schizophrenic Aaron/Roy played by Edward Norton)
SJC Ruling Exhumes Gruesome Somerville Murder Case
Then 15 years old, Edward O'Brien, in 1995, stabbed Janet Downing 98 times in her Prospect Hill home. Recent court rulings mean O'Brien could now be paroled.
The petition asks the Massachusetts Parole Board and Gov. Deval Patrick not to grant parole to Edward O'Brien, who, as a 15-year-old, stabbed his friend's mother 98 times in the woman's own home. O'Brien's friend found his mother's dead body on the dining room floor of their Prospect Hill house.
That was in July of 1995. O'Brien was convicted of the murder in October of 1997 and sentenced to life without parole.
However, a 2012 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court and, more recently, a December, 2013, ruling by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, means O'Brien could be up for parole.
Juvenile Offenders could be up for parole.
Does this mean the allegedly crooked Ronnie and Harvey get a free "get out of jail pass" for being so asinine?

The law change came amid a string of high-profile murders involving teens — perhaps most notably Eddie O’Brien. He was convicted of brutally murdering his friend’s mother.

*the use of "are" for a couple (singular) is grammatically correct as those two morons are allegedly schizophrenic.
