Only in America: Man Who Buried Children Alive, Then Demanded Ransom, Released From Jail
State officials confirmed that Richard Allen Schoenfeld had been released from jail, but would not confirm where he had been released to, only saying that he would be wearing a GPS ankle monitor.
An appeals court ordered his release earlier this year, ruling that the Board of Parole Hearings unfairly set his parole date for 2021 even though it concluded he wasn’t a threat to society.
Schoenfeld and two others were convicted in the 1976 kidnapping of students from Chowchilla and their bus driver. They managed to escape when the kidnappers decided to take a nap before calling in their ransom demand.
