E. Keller Wilcox paroled

April 11, 2008

Valdosta - A man who has been behind bars for nearly three decades for the murder of a Valdosta woman is set to be released in May.

The state board of pardons and paroles announced they granted parole to E-Keller Wilcox.

He was convicted of murdering Helen Hanks and concealing her death.

Hanks was the secretary for a business owned by Wilcox's father.

She disappeared in 1972.  Her body wasn't discovered in Lowndes County until 1981.

Wilcox was arrested and has been jailed ever since.

The board reviewed the case for several months before reaching the decision.

Wilcox has been banned from Lowndes County and may not have any contact with the Hanks family.

He will also be under electronic surveillance.
