Randy was not present, randy dropped Fred off. fred had no intentions of killing John. but it happened. John owed Fred money and Fred was going to beat it out of him. why did John have a sawed off shotgun while he was "undercover" they say it wasnt his, so why was the sawed off shotgun returned to the utlak family? the police should never return evidence. but they gave the gun that wasnt his or so they say, back to his family. strange.. Randy was in the wrong for driving fred out of state. what would you do if fred came back to the car with blood on you and told you to get him out of state. dont even say you would turn him in because fred was fiddling with the gun he had and randy was fearing his life, fred was going to kill randy, because fred was acting crazy. they picked up a hitch hiker and the police beat that gun to a inch from death to say the police story. they set randy up. randy did not kill anyone. he drove out of state because he was 18 and he was scared.people m

So let's get this right 1. what is the difference between a regular citizen and a dirty police officer? If you kill a citizen in Youngstown you get 12 years or so, if you kill a "dirty" cop then you get life in prison. doesnt make sense one bit. whats the difference? is a police officer more righteous to life then a regular person? does that make a regular person worthless compaired to a cop? Randy did not kill john nor was he present when it happened, only wrong thing randy did was drive him out of state and hes got life. stupid i'd say

So Rose let's get this straight..6 months ago you put your name on a petition to keep a convicted cop killer in prison..then you somehow became such good friends with this convicted murderer that you NOW believe he is completely innocent and somehow was railroaded into prison. What did PT Barnum say...there is a sucker born ...

@@@antdeb... YES, I signed it believing what his sister wrote to be true. Then I started following The Truth and Justice page and I asked him questions and received honest answers. Keep talking crap, because I know a little more that's coming out and you all can see who is the real criminals here. READ THE ARTICLE AND IT SAYS POINT BLANK THAT I SIGNED IT. DID I DENY IT? I like everyone else believed what the media wrote years ago. I believed they were cold hearted killers. The fact is, Randy did not hurt or kill anyone.

WOW!! You defend someone and it turns into a love affair. You people are starting rumors here..Is that the Best you got? I'm married and Randy is a friend of mine. So if you all are friends with the opposite sex, then you're all having love affairs....is that it?

I read his entire page and I don't buy one bit of it. One of his links about Detective Tedesco is nothing but rumors and speculation. It even asks people to submit more rumors if they heard them. He says Utlak was going to commit a crime that night because he had the shotgun, but there is no proof of that. Just the murderer saying a crime was going to be committed. One link is supposedly an affidavit from the Brookfield police chief, but that is not there. And most of it is the murderers claim that his co-defendant was somehow blackmailed to becoming involved with the police, but there once again is no proof. No statements from the co-defendant and no evidence whatsoever that the co-defendant wasn't a willing participant. As I said, all I see is a murderer who is trying to manipulate the facts and impugn the integrity of police officers 30 years after the fact.

@Billdog~I think you need to learn how to type/you sound like a tard..What I don't understand is why people believe the media all the time, are people that stupid? NOOO I don't watch the news, so don't even go there, I am one step ahead, I wanna know where all you people claim to get your information from? How educated are you on this situation? This was back in 1982? How old were half of you? I was 8. I knew nothing on this case at that age, but 31 years later I have learned about it, from what I read,things do not add up.This is the honest truth, my neighbor shot and killed a buddy of his 20 years ago, my brother just informed me that he is OUT on parole..REALLY? How is that fair?

How can you argue the facts? You are the same people that will complain about taxes to keep inmates in prison.If you comment, make sure it's the truth. Don't put no fairytale lie on here. Maybe if Randy had a fair trial, you wouldn't have to read this now.

Do I think Fred Joseph killed John Utlac, YES. Do I think that Randy Fellows was there and involved in a criminal conspiricy, YES. Do I think that John Utlac was just a poor police officer in the wrong place at the wrong time, NO I DON'T. I have always thought that John Utlac was just as dirty as Fellows and Joseph. The pieces of this story has just never added up. The public however were satisfied because Two of the three were in prison for life and the third one was dead. What is that old saying, LET SLEEPING DOGS LIE. Well they've been sleeping for 30 years.

I remember this case, and another case of a sherrifs deputy who was killed years ago. In both of those cases, one has never been solved, there was speculation that the cops were involved in the drug trade. I don't think that anyone is argueing that the police officer was killed with Randy Fellows present. There were however a lot of reasons to question just exactly Patrolman Utlac was doing that night. What is the deal with the guns and serial number disputes? Where is the officer from Brookfield now. If he is available why hasn't he been deposed on what his involvement was?

WOW!! I didn't know so many people were present when this crime happened. Maybe then, you all can explain why the cop needed a sawed off shotgun. Do you really know what happened? NO! Only the officer and Fred know what really happened at the time of the shooting. Like I said before, the only truth in the petition was her brother is deceased. Randy is none of the things she stated. So it was based on lies.

Rose, as you requested I read everything on the Facebook page. All I see is a murderer who is manipulating information 30 years after the fact. A murderer who fabricates stories about the dead detective, two other officers in the p.d. and who offers his own statements as proof and facts. I don't see one iota of credible evidence to show he was not guilty. I also see a lot of people who don't know the law and will believe anything. If he was so innocent, why did he flee to Wyoming after the murder? Innocent men don't run.

I'll keep an open mind for now. Cops and prosecutors never ever planted evidence to put a notch in their belt. Right?

Would it be so bad to just hear his side of the events and see the proof he has to back it up. Are we all just afraid it will show how dirty some cops are? Murder is never right no matter what the circumstances. He wasn't the that pulled the trigger. Did he deserve some time for his part in the case. Yes of course but not 40 years. As for rose, does it make you all feel better to be so cruel to her for her opinions? Randy is her friend.

Randy deserves justice! And your right Rose the petition was based on lies. Most people believe what the media says, but they should realize that they don't always report the right stuff. Everything Randy says, he has proof to back up. People should be ashamed of themselves for keeping him locked up this long for a crime he did NOT commit. If anyone is interested in learning the truth you should check out "Truth and Justice for Randy Fellows "on facebook. You can't argue with facts.

Wow, I cannot believe these comments~ we live in a non perfect world, NOBODY is perfect, Do you people realize how many people are sitting on death row/life in prison for being wrongfully accused? Wake up and smell the coffee people! It happens everyday! I believe this is what happened to Randy. Why should he deserve to sit in prison and be denied parole when in fact he was not the triggerman? He was not even there when it took place. I do believe that the other guy deserves what he gets. What makes this such a complex is that this has to do with law enforcement, while I feel bad for this person and their family, police officers are the most dirty out there~hell everyone knows our chief does crack, no one cares, thankfully he is retiring soon. I don't care what you strangers say to me..
