RE: Parole Hearing of Vickie L. Frost, Inmate # W039088
Dear Ms. Ho:
Rick Whitcomb was a very caring, handsome, and wonderful person. He was only 23 years old when he was murdered by his ex-girlfriend, Vickie Frost. Rick was living with Vickie and her family in Gahanna, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus. Vickie was mentally and physically abusive to Rick. Tired of the abuse, Rick decided to leave Vickie and was going to return home to Cleveland, Ohio. Because he wanted to do the right thing, he decided to give his work 2 weeks notice and stay in Columbus until that time was up. Unfortunately, Rick never made it home alive.
On Friday, January 19, 1996 around 10:15 p.m., Rick's life ended when, during an argument in the kitchen, Vickie grabbed a knife from the kitchen counter and stabbed him once in the chest. He was pronounced dead less than an hour later. He died alone on that cold January night without his family, without his friends.
Although charged with aggravated murder, Vickie plead guilty to voluntary manslaughter on July 1, 1996. She received 7-25 years for her crime. At the time of her parole hearing, she will have served less than 5 years.
We, the undersigned, are strongly opposed to her parole and respectfully request that Vickie Frost serve the maximum time of her sentence.
