To the Editor:

In September 1967, Eddie Seibold deliberately murdered three children asleep in their beds in Auburn, Alabama — Lynn Sinclair (age 9), Libba Sinclair (age 18) and Mary Durant (age 9). He also wounded the mother of two of the victims, Juanita Sinclair (a widow). Two other children of the Sinclair family were also targeted but managed to escape.

Seibold was arrested in Florida a few weeks later. Although he ultimately received three life sentences, Seibold is scheduled for a parole hearing on Jan. 11, 2023.

This heinous crime shocked the Auburn community. It remains vivid in the memories of many Auburn residents who would be terrified if he were released.

Please write a letter to the Parole Board opposing this triple-murderer’s parole. Your one-page letter should state the inmate’s name and number — Edward Albert Seibold, # 105403, and the date of the hearing — Jan. 11, 2023.

Letters should be mailed to:
Attention: Victim Services — Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles
100 Capitol Commerce

Blvd., Suite 310
Montgomery, AL 36117.

Mailed letters should be received at least two weeks prior to the hearing.

You may also email victim.services@paroles.alabama.gov. If you send an e-mail instead of a hard copy letter, consider requesting a “Read” or “Received” confirmation to ensure that it is received.

Please get your letters sent now, so that this task is done before the holiday season. Thank you.
