Prisoner number 1161655 is no longer a prisoner

of Course, he has thought about how this day will feel like. Ultimately, he has been waiting for thirty three and a half years. There were also times when he has the idea of freedom is prohibited. Because he couldn't stand it. Sometimes he can't believe it myself. For So many years.

For 33 years, 29 weeks and 6 days, the German Jens Söring in prison, first in England, since 1990, in the USA, as him on Monday, it is reported that the Parole Board has approved his and the dismissal of his then-girlfriend Elizabeth Haysom on probation for the course. Prisoner 1161655 is, therefore, no longer a prisoner.

The decision on early dismissal of the Parole Board reasoned, according to the "Washington Post" that they were both in all the years of exemplary prisoners. According to the Parole-Board members are not to Söring still Haysom is a danger to society, and they were at that time very young, have been. She also was accused of conspiracy for a long time. And The taxpayers save a lot of money. Up to now, it is known that both be handed over to the immigration authority. Then Söring will be transferred and a re-entry ban in the USA, proven results. When, exactly, but it is not yet clear. Haysom, who has a canadian passport, will be brought to Canada.

The house is full of blood

like What go through your mind on a day like this? Perhaps the evening in August, 1984, when it was the first Time in front of him, the Shirt is beautiful, swashbuckling, Elizabeth Haysom, in their dirty T -. He was immediately captured by their arrogance and their wild stories. Or the crime scene pictures of Elizabeth's parents, as they were in March of 1985 in your blood in your house in Lynchburg, Virginia, separates the throats. The mother in her night-robe in the kitchen, the father next to the fireplace. The whole house is full of blood.

Or you think in a Moment of the arrest on may 30. April 1986, in London, as the months went long, wild to escape from him and Elizabeth to the end? The two were arrested in London due to check fraud.

disappeared As a supplementary material of this world, had Mitterrand and Thatcher just decided to build a Tunnel through the English channel. In Chernobyl, the Simulation of a power failure in the reactor was advised four days prior to that, 4 out of control. The phones had rotary dials. Jens Söring was then 19 years old. Now he is 53.

Jens Söring, the decades, said over the years, always the same: I was not there.

He had hoped that the Governor of Virginia, Ralph Northam, granted him the innocence Declaration. He has not done, he will do, however, respect the decision of the Parole Board, as in all other cases, the Governor said. Not guilty, the Söring would have been important, he speaks of miscarriage of justice, when he speaks of his case. But officially not guilty, he does not apply.

Jens Söring, born on 1. In August 1966, as the oldest child of a German diplomat in Bangkok, grew up in Germany and the USA, gifted the University of Virginia scholarship. It was to have everything go smoothly in his life. But then he has, so you can say that, in the wrong girl in love: Elizabeth Haysom.

they were together for a couple of months, since her parents were murdered. For the police, there was nothing at first, what you would be able to Orient themselves: no motive, no Suspects, no clues. But then the investigators of the daughter and her friend came closer and closer. Elizabeth Haysom and Jens Söring decided to flee from America. Thailand, Europe, false Checks. It was an adventure, almost a game, the naive diplomats son and the worldly daughter of a steel Baron. Söring said he had promised her in the night of the murder to tell the police that he was there. His life for theirs.

method of Execution was inhuman

On the 30. In April 1986, the two were arrested in London. At the latest since the Fun stopped. And quickly love. Elizabeth Haysom confessed to, then you called your confession. Jens Söring confessed, as promised. And Elizabeth Haysom accused him, to have her parents murdered.

He recalls to this day the cabbage stinking prison in the London district of Brixton, three and a half years, he fought against his extradition to the United States, against the threat of the death penalty. Again and again he told of the files, which he then read, from the pictures he has seen of the burnt hair on the forearms put to death, of the eyeballs, the bursting of caves from the eyes. He had, he once said, at the time, getting a rope under the mattress.

Then the European court of justice ruled that the method of Execution was inhuman. The Americans were indignant, refused, but on the application of the death penalty. So, Jens Söring wrote a few days ago from prison, was the first battle he had won.


On 12 life. In January 1990 he was extradited to the United States. The Haysom murder was a witness to a case, without eyes, the murder weapon was never found, there were inconsistencies and procedural errors, a biased judge and a city that cried out for revenge. Hobby experts, the loaded Söring, were not allowed to testify in court, the real experts, who relieved him, however. On 4. In September 1990 he was sentenced in Virginia to two life sentences for the murder of Derek and Nancy Haysom.

Jens Söring has been through, what can be in prison are going through: the shock, the self-hatred, the anger, the destructive hopelessness. There were phases in which he thought of suicide, and others, in which the hope was wearing. In 2009, for example, when it became clear that, of the 42 blood traces at the crime scene not assigned to it can be. At the time, he said: "I am in the extension. I will continue to fight, I play like crazy, but I'm already long on the border." That was in December 2010. He sat there, in focus, and yet in a strange way out. Cry? "I have stopped."

in 2016, it was announced that there is an FBI profile of the offender that posed by a perpetrator who was close to the family. It is not to be found, the author of the profile of said, at the FBI, nothing lost. In the same year, the court, certified medical Institute in Virginia, that found at the scene matched the blood of blood group 0 was, as always suspected, Jens Söring comes. And that also the blood of the blood group comes FROM at the scene of a man, not of the murdered Nancy Haysom, believed in the past. Thus, it was clear that the blood have been identified traces of two up to today unknown men at the crime scene.

The battle against the inmates

the 14-times the Parole Board decided in the past few years about Sörings release. Always negative. But now there was evidence that the decision of the Parole Board of Virginia could this time be different. In prison, there was talk of the other inmates fought over who should get Jens Sörings bed, if then he is gone. And Jens Söring began to take stock.

the fact that he is still alive, is a victory, he wrote. A pale, smart-mouthed German in a US jail. But in all the years of no Rule-breaking, nothing at all: "I have not lost my honor, and other people, your honor, it's not." This, he writes, was the second battle he had won, the battle against the inmates.

And now?

He has never used a phone is familiar with say the Internet is only hearsay. It's not like he hadn't noticed, he has followed, read, looked at, and especially commented. Of course, there were times where he couldn't bear to watch it, advertising made him ready, the juicy Steak, which he saw there, real meat. He hadn't eaten in decades, no more meat. How does it taste? "I can't remember," he said in 2010.

As a book author in the freedom

If you ask Jens Söring, how it will proceed, he writes even before the announcement of the Parole Board decision from prison: "I will continue to work as an author." The six books he has published as a detainee in the United States. He has written about God, and about his life. And about the US prison system. He writes as he is, rebellious, and a little know-it-alls and well-informed.

he has Just published his first novel, he is since the 18th century. To have November as an E-Book: "Son of the Promise". It's about a murder.
