Years ago I attended school in Sparta, Il. I knew a kid name Ryan Parker. Several years later I ran into him in Springfield, Il. I would say we were about 16-17 then. I was recently doing some research into his whereabouts and the only Ryan Parker I can come up with is a 2002 article about a guy that killed two people and is serving life in prison. Although I found the articles I could not locate any photos to see if this guy was the same Ryan Parker that I attended school with. Does anyone have a photo of the guy or know of where I can locate a photo?

Yeah, i grew up in Sparta and went to school with the kid from kindergarden to at least 7th grade. Kinda crazy but looking back you can see how something was not quite right.

I played baseball with him in middle school. He was a little odd but I always thought he was funny and a nice guy. It's a shame for everyone.

I grew up with him too. His mother ocasionaly watched me as a child when we were growing up. When he moved back to the area after being gone many years he was not the same person. He boasted of stealing his step fathers service weapon and shooting animals with it. He was weird towards women that I personaly know. It did not suprise me at all when he was arrested for the double murders. I feel bad for the victims familys, the sparta family i know some of her nieces. Bring back the death penalty!!!!!!!!
