It’s pretty sad and disgusting that this story begins by saying, “Before being killed and buried in his backyard in rural Michigan, a 72-year-old man served time for sexually assaulting a minor. The Michigan Public Sex Offender Registry states Roger L. Knickerbocker II in July 2000 was convicted of two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a victim 13 or younger.”
Regardless of how heinous the crime 17 years ago was, the individual had served his time. The story continues; “Police unearthed Knickerbocker’s body the night of Thursday, Aug. 10. He had been buried several yards behind his secluded house at 5851 Snyder Trail in Hale, underneath a dog house.”
And they say the registry is not punishment!
