Valdosta - A man convicted of one of Valdosta's most memorable crimes is now up for parole.

E. Keller Wilcox was found guilty of the 1972 murder of Hellen Hanks, who disappeared from her office at Wilcox Outdoor Advertising. Keller was her boss.

Her body was found eight years later.

He was denied parole in his last hearing three years ago. His next hearing was set for 2011, but it has been pushed up to next year. In 2006, he wrote a letter to the parole board confessing his guilt.

It's unknown if that letter had any impact on the change in his parole hearing date.
