Parole Denied for Colombo and DeLuca
Police Chief Charles Walsh and the Elk Grove Village Police Department would like to thank the community for emails, letters, and personal stories used in recent parole hearings of Patty Colombo and Frank DeLuca.
On May 25, 2017, Patty Colombo was denied parole by the Illinois Prisoner Review Board for another three years by a vote of 13 – 1.
On April 27, 2017, Frank DeLuca was denied parole by the Illinois Prisoner Review Board for another three years by a vote of 13 – 0.
Since February 1, 1978, when determined sentence was created in Illinois, the Illinois Prisoner Review Board determines when to parole inmates under the pre-1978 sentence law. Fewer than 300 inmates remain under the old sentencing system.
In May 1976, three victims, Frank Colombo, Mary Colombo, and Michael Colombo were brutally murdered in Elk Grove Village. July 1977, Patty Colombo and Frank DeLuca are tried by a jury and sentenced to 200-300 years in prison- essentially life in prison.
Our Elk Grove Village community and The Elk Grove Village Police Department continues to represent the victims and ensure these inmates should never be released from prison.
