A big fat thank you to each and every one of you who helped make the following happen today:
Commissioner Robert Doyle said Peyer, who still maintains that he is innocent, has not explained the reasons behind the killing.

After speaking with my friends as they left the prison, they were thrilled with the outcome and deeply grateful for the overwhelming support from the community. The parole board received over 300 letters opposing Peyer's parole request and they were bolstered by the support of the District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis, who sat in on the hearing. While it's a huge emotional strain to have to revisit this brutal murder every four years so that they can put a face on this tragedy for the parole board, they are so grateful that Peyer was again denied the opportunity to walk free. As someone who has followed this case for 21 years and who has seen the love and kindness the Knott family has to offer, I couldn't be happier about the decision the parole board made today. Thank you for your part in this, whether you sent letters or just sent out the intent to keep him behind bars. Oreet (Cara's sister-in-law) will be writing up a thank you when she gets home and gets some rest. She's asked me to share it here and I'll do so as soon as it comes through. But for now, know that you made a difference and we're all so grateful for you.
