Please help DENY parole for convicted Double Murderer David Leon Scarbrough, TOMIS ID # 00286411.

On February 3, 1995, David Scarbrough and his "friend" Thomas Paul Gagne Jr. broke into my parents', Les and Carol Dotts, home while their 13 year old accomplice, Harley Watts, was the lookout. When my parents came home from going out to dinner, Scarbrough and Gagne emptied a 9mm gun into my parents. Including a direct shot to my mother's head.

Both Scarbrough and Gagne were already well on their way to becoming violent career criminals on the night they viciously murdered two kind, loving, innocent people - Les and Carol Dotts.

Three years later at Scarbrough's double murder trial, the truth came out about David Scarbrough's supposed lack of criminal history. He testified on the stand, that he began abusing and dealing drugs and stealing cars when he was ONLY 13 or 14 years old. There was also testimony from his father about a "shootout" he was involved in with his "friend" and co-conspirator Tom Gagne. His parents never reported this to the police. They enabled his criminal behavior which resulted in my parents brutal murders. And his parents had their own drug possession conviction while Scarbrough was a teenager (it was later expunged for good behavior.)

The parole hearing is coming up 10 years sooner than my husband and I and the Knox County DA's office were expecting.

PLEASE go to *****.org and type David Scarbrough in the search box to pull up the petition. There is also a section that for personal comments. Also, only the Parole Board and I can see your signature, city, state, zip code, and comments. NO ONE will see your physical address or email address.

You can also find additional information on the Facebook page I created for my parents, Les-Carol Dotts.

Also, PLEASE share this post and the petition with anyone you think might want to keep a thief, drug dealer, and double murderer in prison.

Thank you for your compassion and support,

Jeanne Dotts Brykalski and Robert Edward Brykalski
