On June 4, 2015, Texas Department of Criminal Justice official, Jack Hamilton writes to Vic Feazell, informing Feazell that the Conditional Pardon that has been filed for Anthony Melendez has been voted on by the Board of Pardons and Paroles and they had voted not to recommend the Pardon for Melendez.
A copy of the transmission between Hamilton and Feazell was given to Anthony Melendez, which we then received from him.
It is obvious, that Feazell has written a letter to the Board opposing Melendez’s Pardon.
Feazell writes to Hamilton via email 20 minutes later:
Dear Mr. Hamilton,
Thank you very much for this notice. It is welcomed news. I don’t know if Mr. Melendez’s attorney has shared this with you, but the word is all over Waco that the DNA results are back. All of the “suspects” the defense has been crowing about for the past 30 years were excluded as contributors to any DNA found on the sample. Mr. Melendez’s DNA was not submitted for comparison.
The DNA results paperwork is dated 11-9-15, months AFTER Feazell’s letter to Hamilton.
Melendez’s DNA was indeed submitted for comparison as it is listed on the report.
