Can't begin to imagine how Lee Harvey's family must be feeling. Seems so unfair that she will be free to still enjoy her life at a young age.

She seems to have served the fourteen years recommended. IMO it isn't long enough, but you can't have people locked away for the whole of their life like they do in the US.

She's done her time why shouldn't she be realeased - she's no danger to the public.

Carmina - How do you know she isn't a danger to the public, a good enough actress can pull the wool over the parole boards eyes (remember the grieving girlfriend act)

Anyone that could stab another person 30+ times is seriously unhinged and there's something not quite right in their brain somewhere.

People like that always pose a danger

she killed one person in a crime of passion - she's not Fred West. - I know she tried to cover it up and that was wrong, but by all accounts she's been a model prisoner. And that's the whole point of prison isn't it - it's a punishment and a time to reflect and rehabilitate.
She should be released.

"She killed one person in a crime of passion" hmm

I know someone in his family, I think she's his aunt. I hadn't heard Tracy was getting out but then I've been in hospital a month so not spoken to many people. I know she won't be happy but then the family never will be in there situations and you can't make it about their feelings. She's served her sentence, what else can you ask? She's done well in prison by all accounts, even holding down a job.

Why is this even news? People who have done their time for murder are released every single day and the vast majority of them do their best to settle back into society and get on with their lives. However, most of them aren't blonde and don't make good headlines so they are ignored by the media.

Yes she's good media material.

Men kill their partners every day of the week, 99% of them we never hear about.

I don't understand the well-wishers writing to her in prison and sending her money

The Yorkshire Ripper receives love letters from women.

Work that one out.
