DOUGLAS BALSEWICZ, WHO BRUTALLY STABBED HIS WIFE 42 TIMES IN FRONT OF THEIR 2 AND 4 YEAR OLD CHILDREN, IS BEING PAROLED MAY 17, 2022 AFTER SERVING ONLY 24 YEARS OF AN 80 YEAR SENTENCE.
“To go against what Judge Sykes recommended. She said for what it’s worth to the Parole Board that this is not an appropriate case for any form of early release. This stated in the sentencing transcript. It’s killing our family once again. We’re all back to ’97 and history is repeating itself”. WE ARE OUTRAGED TO SAY THE LEAST.
June 3, 1997, a day my family will always remember and be haunted by. Douglas Balsewicz brutally stabbed my sister 42 times in front of their 2 and 4 year old children (Chris and Nikkole). This happened around midnight. This was on Doug’s birthday. That day I was suppose to take Johanna to court for her first hearing on divorcing this monster. The kids laid in bed with covers over their head clinging to each other til Johanna took her last breath and woke up the next morning to go to the neighbors. Both kids hand in hand, blood filled as they walk to the neighbor to say my mom is dead. The bedroom was a bloody mess. Blood in other rooms, blood down the hall. These frightened children lay in bed with their mom half on the floor and half on the bed as Doug left her to bleed a slow death. For many years Johanna’s son, my nephew, had guilt that he couldn’t call 911 because Johanna was lying on the phone. Chris and Nikkole both went through bouts of counseling. Chris ended up dying in a one person car crash August 26, 2019. Nikkole left without her mom and brother.
WHERE IS THE JUSTICE, LETTING THIS MONSTER OUT AFTER SERVING ONLY 24 YEARS IN PRISON. GOVENOR EVERS AND PAROLE COMMISSIONER JOHN TATE, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS. WHAT IF THIS WAS YOUR CHILD, WIFE, OR SISTER. WOULD YOU FEEL THE SAME ABOUT THIS OUTRAGEOUS GRANT GIVEN TO DOUG BALSEWICZ. IS 24 YEARS REALLY ENOUGH FOR THIS HEINOUS CRIME!!!!
