Re Fred Grimm’s Oct. 13 column, Nothing good about execution of mentally ill man: If ever a crime merited the the death penalty, it is this one. I don’t care about the drug-house murders. It is the Hialeah rape and murders that I am talking about. Belinda Worley’s father was a co-worker at Eastern Airlines and a dear friend of all who had the good fortune of knowing him. He learned his trade serving a 20-year hitch as a Marine Corps aviation technician.
Larry Worley was a good man and loved his daughter dearly. For him to endure the pain of her murder is impossible to imagine. Larry took about a week off from work before returning to the job. The men on his crew found it devastating to face him and offer condolences.
After the demise of Eastern I lost contact with Larry. I just hope he is alive somewhere to cash his ”retribution” check.
