Anybody know if these guys are still behind bars?
Anybody know if these two POSes, Jerry Lee Beatty and Jack Ronald Jones, who sadistically murdered Stephanie Roper, are still behind bars?

Saturday Evening Post, Dec, 1984 by Nick Thimmesch

A FAMILY'S FIGHT FOR JUSTICE

If good can come out of bad, then the remarkable story of Roberta Roper, a housewife who has captured national attention with a victims' rights organization she helped to start, is a shining example. On a spring night in April 1982. Roberta Roper's eldest daughter. Stephanie Ann Roper, 22, was brutally raped and murdered. Though deep in grief over this horror, Roberta Roper was composed enough to assist in organizing the "Stephanie Roper Committee,' which in the past two years has persuaded legislators in her home state of Maryland to pass new laws stiffening parole requirements and providing a measure of equity for the victims of violent crimes.

I remember seeing an episode about this crime on a news magazine program years ago.

1. I don't know if they are still
locked up or not. Really don't hear much about them though Stephanie Roper is still mentioned in the news once in a while and the foundation is a very valuable resource in Maryland. They changed the name a few years ago and Roberta stepped down as the head but the foundation still does a lot to help a lot of people. You can see what they do and offer here http://www.mdcrimevictims.org/_pages/d_about_mcv/d1_abo... .
