Iowa tried to cage suspect as a sex predator

Keith Owens Parker was arrested three times prior to telling police on Aug. 6 that he had raped and murdered a prostitute.
A Des Moines man who told police he raped and murdered a prostitute earlier this month was released from prison about three years earlier, records show, after Iowa authorities dropped efforts to confine him indefinitely as a dangerous sexual predator.
Keith Owens Parker, 48, remains jailed on a charge of first-degree murder in connection with the death of Georgina Kimble, 37.
“That outrages me,” said Sandra Moreland, Kimble’s mother. “I believe in rehabilitation. But there’s a difference between rehabilitating them and knowing you can’t rehabilitate them. … The laws in this state are messed up.”
They had three chances to lock up this animal, but did not do it. Instead they allowed him to kill. He should have stayed in prison where he belonged.
