Thank goodness that animal is still behind bars where she belongs. She took away her family's chances of long and happy lives. She at least gets to live out the rest of her life. That's more than she deserves.

Good. Life means life. We can't expect our crimes to go away because time has passed or we have matured. I'm sure she has matured but as long as there is one person whose life is still affected by her crimes, behind bars is where she belongs. She can still serve others there.

Yes, that is very good. However, it would be good if there was a movie or documentary on this case. It's pretty intriguing. As for Patricia Columbo and Frank DeLuca, though, let them serve their time and then some. No one and I mean NO ONE has the right to do what they've done and get away with it no matter how "rehabilitated" either one of them may feel. They are evil incarnate. They made their decisions to do what they did. No one else made them for them. I'm glad law enforcement has stepped in at the parole hearings. These monsters never deserve to see the light of day again. There's people who've done less than them and got longer time. They wanted to let her family rot, now they get their chance... letting them out would be a huge mistake anyway. They're very vindictive, threatening to kill witnesses that they told about the crime and made them witnesses. They would probably try to kill anyone who helped in putting them behind bars, even though they did most of that themselves. They're not sorry for anything, only that they got caught.

i believe that god loves everyone and has forgiven her for these crimes. we donot actually know for sure what happened that nightit took place. the answers lie between delcua and pat columbo.i know she was involved in church and if she is one of god's children we should not be quick to judge her.i will remember her in my prayers and i hope one day she'll remember and can come to terms with the actions that she was involved with. i truly believe that it was more frank than her.i know what its like to be manipulated by an older man.even though i never would even dream of doing the things she is chared with i know how it feels to be under a older mans spell.this is one of the saddest things i haave ever read about.something about this ordeal makes me so interested in her case.like i said she will always be in my prayers with the rest of her family as well. i heard that she has one family member sticking by her and she should be very greatful to have anyone at all.there again i believe that is god working in her life. god loves everyone.

I think its time to let Patricia out of prison. It sounds like shes made a change and shes definitely a different person now.

I agree with Amber that God loves everyone and Patricia deserves a second chance at life, she was so young and immature when she committed these crimes, I think she would do alot of good in the free world.

I don't think that either of them should be released from prison. There needs to be more honesty about the part each of them had during the commission of this terrible crime. Who is responsible for the shootings, the beating with the trophy and the senseless stabbing perpretated upon that poor young boy. Patricia is not being honest about her part in this atrocity.

I think for someone to call another person is very inhumane and very hurtful maybe you should lloook at it like glass and see the other side of the story think about it, she was a very deprived child, her mother was always ignoring her and the family its self just had weird ways like her dad told her she could have a boyfriend but that they couldnt get serious??? thats not right what teenage girl dosent fall in love???? and also, he mother hated her, she always had something to say about what she was doing, then her godfather i think it was, he was sexually abusing her, so i think she was a person who needed help and she never said she commited the murders!! she said that she took the blame, that could mean something tottally different, DO UNTO OTHERS HOW YOU WOULD LIKE TP BE TREATED!! that means dont talk bad about ppl do you want to get talked about????

Shes where she belongs and should spend her last breath there. She is not an animal. She is a piece of garbage her had her little brother butchered 87 times with a knife and slit her own mothers throat.
Apparently you are happy her little brother was murdered so violently. May the same happen to your child.

I just read the book, loves blood. What happen was years ago, she learned her lesson, she is regretful. I say let her out and give her a chance at life. She was a kid. we all did stupid things at that age. Granted not illegal

I cannot believe that anyone who conspires, plans and ultimately takes matters into their own hands with an accomplice to murder her family has any excuse but to completely confess her part in these acts and to seek GOD for forgiveness. Patricia Columbo's failure to be honest about her conniving and ill fated venture at murders for hire using sex as payment, claiming loss of memory during these atrocious acts only prove that she is in denial. Why weren't her lover's family members murdered as well. There is more to their motives than appears on the surface. She initially tried to have them murdered unsuccessfully, then after allowing her lover to enter their residence and with him initiating this nightmare by shooting her father, she witnesses the murders of her mother and brother then mutilates his dead body. Instead of college degrees, she needs psychological examinations. Where is her conscience?

Hopefully she will die in prison, many, many, many years from now. Worthless excuse for a human being.

What Patti needs is a 15 x 15 picture of her Mother, Father and Brother pasted on her wall. Every morning and night, she needs to see their faces and how she destroy Michael life forever. He is dead and how she is still alive. How she took his own RIGHT away from being a husband/father and her parents will never be grandparents. And, THAT IS HOW SHE STOLE FROM HER FAMILY BY BEING A COLD HEARTED KILLER. She needs to rot in jail!
