Can anyone tell me about John David Lafon? If I remember correctly, he was convicted of a murder. Who was the victim? When did this happen? What is his sentence? Is he eligable for parole? Just curious.

He was found guilty of killing VT student Meredith Mergler in 1991. I think she went missing 87. He has been eligible for parole but was denied. This story has many layers. He would have never been convicted if the case were tried today. New evidence points to the son of a once prominent leader in Giles Co. however all courts have rejected his appeals. Word has it that the Innocence Project is working on his case.

Oh, ok then. Since he is your dad, and all, we will just overlook his homicidal tendencies. I'm sure the parents of his victims may just want YOU to shutup! Maybe he should have thought about what being a murderer would do to his children? Or maybe he shouldn't have had kids if he wanted to be a murderer. When you take someone's life, you can bet your sweet ass your name is gonna be smeared all over the news which, in turn, is going to affect your family. Get over it or take up the issue with your murdering father!

He was recorded confessing to the crime by a witness wearing a wire.
