Update: PAROLE GRANTED. Despite
our protests and protests by The Franklin County Prosecutor's Office,
Roddrick Suttles has been paroled. We truly hope Mr. Suttles has
been rehabilitated. However, based on the horrific and extremely
brutal nature of Mr.
Suttles crime, we believe The Ohio Parole Board has made a huge mistake
placing Mr. Suttles back into the community.
crime compares with those of Ted
Bundy and Jeffrey Dahmer.
Yes/ 2 years
-Rape x 2
October 2, 1983 a 22-year-old female neighbor invited Roddrick
Suttles, a Youngstown Ohio native who
was residing in Columbus, into her home. She wanted to talk
to Suttles because he and a neighbor were playing a radio very loud
in the yard
behind her apartment.
· When the conversation became
too personal the woman asked Suttles to leave.
· Suttles then asked the woman "Are
you going to give it to me or am I going to take it?"
· Suttles then struck the woman
in the face, tightened a belt around her neck, and dragged her
into the kitchen.
· Suttles then grabbed a knife
and forced her to perform a sex act while prodding her with the
· After assaulting the woman
several times Suttles forced the woman to crawl on her stomach
to the living room. He made her
bring him her purse and give him the $200 it contained.
· Suttles then raped the woman.
· Suttles then got electrical
cords from several appliances and tied the woman to a towel rack
in a dark bathroom.
· When the woman thought Suttles
had left she tried to get free. Suttles then turned on the light
and laughed at the woman.
· Suttles then forced the woman
into the bathtub and asked her if she wanted hot or cold water.
· The woman answered cold water
and Suttles filled the tub with water. He then took a hair dryer,
plugged it in, and threw it
into the tub to electrocute her.
· When there was no reaction
Suttles then threw another hair dryer into the tub. The woman felt
the electric shock, however she
did not lose consciousness.
· When the woman did not die
from the electrocution Suttles got a larger knife and slashed her
wrists and throat.
· Suttles then got a towel and
soaked it in kerosene and tried to smother the woman.
· When the woman did not die
Suttles poured kerosene into her mouth, over her head, and into
the gaping neck wound which caused
the woman to pass out.
· Suttles then fled the scene.
· Somehow the woman woke up
and managed to work free of the electrical cords.
· She then crawled out the back
door, nude and bleeding, and called out for help from her neighbors.
· A doctor said the woman had
lost half her blood supply by the time she was able to crawl out
the door. Somehow she survived.
Arrested, Convicted, Paroled
· Roddrick Suttles was arrested
and indicted on charges of Murder, Rape x 2, Kidnapping and Aggravated
Robbery. No one expected the
victim would live which is why Suttles was indicted for murder.
When the woman survived the murder charge was change to attempted
· Suttles was convicted by jury
on all counts and sentenced to 37-100 years for these horrific
· Unbelievably The Ohio Parole Board
granted parole to Roddrick Suttles. We were unable to get
a full board hearing to urge The Ohio Parole Board to
decision. Suttles was
put back on the streets
on November 18, 2010.
We have been working as advocates for over
eight years and have worked on many cases. Roddrick Suttles very
well may be the most violent and sadistic inmate we have ever seen.
His crime is certainly comparable to the crimes of some of this
serial killers including Ted Bundy and
Jeffrey Dahmer. In order to protect society we believe the parole
board should have required that Mr. Suttles serve EVERY DAY of his
100-year sentence for this incredibly brutal, violent crime.
