YOUR HELP IS NEEDED
TAKE ACTION…and make a difference!!!
In September of this year, the Parole Board will review the case of David Lopez. It was on June 26, 1979, David Lopez murdered 20-year-old Cydney Myers, daughter of Nell and Fred Myers, sister of Whitney Myers. Cydney's mother, Nell Myers, became the founder of the organization PEOPLE AGAINST VIOLENT CRIME, now it's in 25th year and fought the system single handed to enact the "Victim's Bill of Rights". In it's current capacity PAVC and this Bill gives voice to both victim's and survivors in our judicial system.
Both Nell and Fred have since passed away. So it seems that only CYNDNEY'S SISTER, Whitney, remains on the contact list to be notified of the possible parole. Lopez is in very high hopes that there is strong possibility he will be released. That is unless concerned citizens come forward and protest his release..

Re: David Villanueva Lopez
State ID:#02822925 TDCJ ID# 00496442
Dear Board Members:
As a concerned citizen, I am writing to ask that you DO NOT grant parole to inmate David Lopez TDCJ ID# 496442. June 26, 1979, David Lopez murdered 20-year-old Cydney Myers. He raped Cydney, viciously beat her with a tire rod and then strangled her with a seatbelt. After he had already murdered her, he then acted out the unthinkable; he proceeded to rape and sodomize her lifeless body again. He then left her beaten body slumped over the steering wheel of a car parked on Guadalupe Street in Austin Texas.
Lopez’s walked a free man for almost nine years until a just criminal system caught up with him. There were two separate emotional trials for the victim’s family. Twenty Four citizens/jurors convicted Lopez beyond a reasonable doubt. He is serving a “Life” sentence for Murder with Deadly Weapon.
The extreme violent nature of his crime should preclude any consideration for parole. The victim and society deserve to know that they are protected from this violent offender, David Villanueva Lopez.
In addition, to lessen the emotional trauma the parole review process has on the victim's family, please consider the maximum set-off for any future parole reviews. Thank you for your consideration.
Respectfully,
concerned person

They fail to mention that lopez walked free for nine years because when the murder of Cydney Myers (may she rest in peace) happened he and several other people where completely cleared, including, skin samples, hair samples, and semen samples, NONE MATCHED HIS....

He walked free because he was INNOCENT! Unfortunately he has had to spend his life in prison for something that he didn't do! I feel for the victims family, but all of these people protesting...GET A LIFE...Were you there? Do you really know anything about this case other than what you think you know? Prob NOT!!!!!!!!

my she rest in peace, correct me if Im wrong but she was killed at her home then transported in her car and left down town not killed in her car at all... so yeah lets get the facts straight, and Im with concerned person, the samples taken from Cydneywhen the crime happened did not match the person that has sat in prison for the last 22 yrs, so that means the real killer is still out there maybe you should be concerned with that fact....

The reason David Lopez walked free for 9 yrs. was because there wasn't DNA then, but when he got arrested...there was. It DID turn out to be his DNA by 99.9%, and there are so many things that YOU people don't know. He is the murderer, no, she was not killed at her home. Yes, it was Lopez.
So all of you that say something different, you are the ones that don't know what you're talking about.
I hope he never sees the light of day. And to the person that said to get a life to the people that were writing protest letters...I suggest that you not talk until you know what you are talking about, and you get a life. At least you have the chance, unlike Cydney Myers who was murdered by David V. Lopez

The above "quote" is an out and out lie. The results showed beyond a doubt that it was David Lopez.
The DNA was not used in the initial trial...but when it was. WOW...what a shock. David Lopez was the one.
Even after several people had seen Cydney and David driving carelessly down Guadalupe and picked her picture and his out of ten blonde women and 10 Hispanic men. I'm not going any further, but he didn't just spend all that time in jail after the DNA testing because they were bored and needed another prisoner. Don't be naive.

To mercy from Houston Again spilling facts that are not true. No, DNA was not available at the time of the murder but that is not why David walked free for 9 years. He freely gave 3 different blood semum and hair samples over the course of those nine years. DNA was not used until the last one in 1987 . And yes it did match but what most people do not know is PCR technique was used with was experimental at the time also that even without DNA the other 2 previous samples did not match semum found on her body and out of 20 something prints on and in her car NONE were davids and about 7 were never identified ALSO out of 12 or 13 hair s found on her body only 1 was SIMILAR to Davids and none matched Cyds
Also when DNA come available it was very strange that the DPS lab could not use Davids old samples they needed new ones BUT they could use the old ones from the crime ALSO WHEN DAVIDS LAWYERS WANTED TO DO THEIR OWN TESTING THE SAMPLES COULD NOT BE FOUND. Oh did I mention that the APD detective that drove 70 miles to Davids job to collect his 3rd set of samples ( the ones that matched after 9 years and 3 tries) was charged in the mid to late 9o's for purgery and falsifing blood evidence in a high profile Houston murder.
AND the 'several people" that say saw David and Cyd driving on guadalupe was ONE person who came forward after seeing a reinactment of the crime on Crimestoppers which showed Cyn and a male who looked like Davids twin. When the PHOTO line was shown to this man NONE of the other men looked anything like David or the man on crimestoppers video and the witness himself stated on the stand that the person he saw had longer hair and a mustach which David did not have at the time. David was a hispanic male who was close friends with Cyd and her circle of friends in the mid to late 70's and someone had to pay. No matter the cost

TO: Julie in Houston, Im not a lier, the semun that was in her body did not match Davids the hair under her nails was not his.......... the fingerprints where not his and your so called reasonable doubt was not even close to 99.9 %, Dna was not used it was the pcr tech that was used and still no semun hair prints witness matched Davids if you would check befor you type you would know that that is not DNA and what would you think about it if nothing match for 9 years that why David walked free and raised a family and lived his life for 9 years because the sperm in her body was not his ..... not the hair under her nails, Im not going to rant about this all day because it is clear that you dont know what the hell you are talking about.. and just for the record Concerned person is Venita Smith, David Lopez's sister in law and I believe, from evidence that my Brother in law missed out on just the same as Cyd. and that he is as innocent as you are.

Which TEXAS county does Louisiana Governor Edwain W. Edwards own a Ranch in?

These are his friends on this link but I have no idea how to locate his Ranch or former TEXAS Ranch.

Which federal prison is he living in? The following new link may inspire Smart People to fine the Title Deed;

Dear concerned person - apparantly you were either not there during the trial or you are an unfortunate family member. Cyd was never a good friend of David's!!!! He wanted to be her "lover" and she wouldn't have it - that is why she is dead. She was actually afraid of him.
And do not ever refer to her as "Cyd" you do not have the right.
DNA DOES NOT LIE!
