Keep Theodore Glenn Williams in confinement
Please help keep our communities safe and keep Laura Jo Sutliffe's murder in confinement!
Theodore Glenn Williams devastated two families and terrorized communities in Grand Rapids and Sparta nearly 50 years ago. Williams kidnapped, raped and killed Laura Jo Sutliffe, 13, of Sparta, in 1966, and Sonya Santa Cruiz, 7, in 1967.
Despite pleading guilty to first-degree murder, and then second-degree murder, in Sonya’s killing, Williams is not behind bars. He has spent most of his adult life confined in psychiatric hospitals under a long-since repealed law, the Criminal Sexual Psychopath Act.
On Wednesday, Williams, 75, will ask Allegan County Circuit Judge Kevin Cronin to set a jury trial to determine if he has recovered from his personality disorder and should be released from a psychiatric hospital to live out the rest of his years.
