Default 2018: Black monster jailed in 1967 for brutal murder of two young [white] girls, raped, disemboweled

************************************************** ******************************
Arizona: BLACK serial killer back in prison after 2015 parole release
https://www.myheraldreview.com/news/...8607bbf4d.html
TUCSON – A [black] man convicted in 1967 of brutally murdering two young [white] Sierra Vista girls is back in a state prison while officials determine whether the recent presence of an 8-year-old girl in his residence is grounds to revoke his parole.



In 1967, William L. Huff was a 16-year-old Buena High School student when he violently killed Jennelle Haines and Cindy Clelland, ages 6 and 7, during a crime spree which kept Sierra Vista and Fort Huachuca on edge for several weeks. He used the name The Phantom when he wrote a letter to threaten the murder of another girl.

Janelle Haines, Cindy Clelland
Cindy Clelland disappeared April 30, 1967, but her body wasn’t found for a few days. Police reports revealed she had been strangled, beaten with a rock, stabbed, and disemboweled (knifed & gutted). She was found undressed.

Then Jennelle Haines disappeared on Fort Huachuca in June. She was found hours later, also undressed and brutally attacked. The fathers of both girls were U.S. Army personnel, and Huff’s father had been in the Army.

Although Huff wears a GPS ankle monitor and has regular contact with a parole officer, a spokeswoman for the victims’ families argued at the July hearing that Huff’s activities were not sufficiently restricted to prevent his contact with children, particularly young girls, also reminded the board members of the violent manner in which the Sierra Vista girls were killed.
“It really bothered me that he’d been given parole,” Santor told the Herald/Review. “There are many things Huff did before the murders that clearly pointed to his violent tendencies, things that maybe weren’t understood in 1967 but we certainly understand them nowadays.”
“I’m glad to see him back in prison,” Santor said. “It’s the right place for him.”

BLACK SV serial killer back in prison after 2015 parole release

TUCSON – A [black] man convicted in 1967 of brutally murdering two young [white] Sierra Vista girls is back in a state prison while officials determine whether the recent presence of an 8-year-old girl in his residence is grounds to revoke his parole.

[black] William L. Huff is classified as a “temporary placement” at the Arizona State Prison Complex in Tucson after he turned himself in Nov. 26 at the direction of his parole officer. Officials of the Arizona Department of Corrections (ADC) found the girl in Huff’s apartment with two adult female relatives during a standard visit over Thanksgiving weekend.

There is no indication she was harmed or threatened in any way, according to ADC.

Huff, 67, has remained an ADC inmate despite a December 2015 decision by the Arizona Board of Executive Clemency to place him on home-arrest as a condition of parole. He will appear before the clemency board in a few weeks for a public hearing on whether he should be released again or remain in prison.

In 1967, Huff was a 16-year-old Buena High School student when he violently killed Jennelle Haines and Cindy Clelland, ages 6 and 7, during a crime spree which kept Sierra Vista and Fort Huachuca on edge for several weeks. He used the name The Phantom when he wrote a letter to threaten the murder of another girl.

Cindy Clelland disappeared April 30, 1967, but her body wasn’t found for a few days. Police reports revealed she had been strangled, beaten with a rock, stabbed, and disemboweled (knifed & gutted). She was found undressed.

Then Jennelle Haines disappeared on Fort Huachuca in June. She was found hours later, also undressed and brutally attacked. The fathers of both girls were U.S. Army personnel, and Huff’s father had been in the Army.

Authorities received two letters related to the case. In both, the word sheriff was misspelled the same way Huff wrote it for detectives during the investigation.

After pleading guilty to two counts of second-degree murder, Huff was sentenced to federal prison for Haines’ murder and 40 years to life in state prison for

Clelland’s death. He became eligible in 2008 to apply to the state’s clemency board for parole.

His requests were denied until December 2015 when the clemency board voted to release Huff on home-arrest with some restrictions. He walked out of prison in January 2016 and the board reviews his status at a public hearing every six months.
Public records show Huff’s most recent semi-annual review took place in Phoenix on July 25. The members asked questions about his relationships, counseling, health, and personal activities.

Huff, who has lived in Pima and Pinal counties since his release, participated in the July hearing by telephone. He told the board he was living in his own apartment which was arranged by a family member and hoped to get married after completion of religious training.

He also acknowledged being $450 in arrears on state fees due to difficulties finding permanent employment. His parole officer told the board Huff had been proactive in seeking a job, which must involve a position without contact with minors.

Although Huff wears a GPS ankle monitor and has regular contact with a parole officer, a spokeswoman for the victims’ families argued at the July hearing that Huff’s activities were not sufficiently restricted to prevent his contact with children, particularly young girls.

The spokeswoman also reminded the board members of the violent manner in which the Sierra Vista girls were killed. It was the same message the board has heard on behalf of the families since Huff became eligible.

At the end of the one-hour July hearing, the board denied issuing Huff an absolute discharge from parole supervision and instead voted to maintain his current parole status despite the objection of the victims’ families.

One person closely following the news of Huff’s recent incarceration is former Sierra Vista Police Chief David Santor, who was a teenager at the time of the murders.

“The community changed after the girls were murdered,” Santor recalls. “There was a heightened concern for kids and we lost that sense of innocence.”

Santor says he can trace his interest in law enforcement to the Huff case, which he has studied over the years. He was surprised to learn in 2016 that the clemency board granted Huff home-arrest status, despite the violent nature of the two murders.


“It really bothered me that he’d been given parole,” Santor told the Herald/Review. “There are many things Huff did before the murders that clearly pointed to his violent tendencies, things that maybe weren’t understood in 1967 but we certainly understand them nowadays.”

He hopes the clemency board keeps Huff behind bars.

“I’m glad to see him back in prison,” Santor said. “It’s the right place for him.”

The killer ended up being William Huff, who had stolen bicycles and killed neighborhood cats. Huff was also accused of breaking into a neighbor's house and fondling a little girl. He was caught and convicted in part because he sent a letter to the police taunting them. His handwriting matched the letter sent to police.
