On June 2008, Eric Smith was denied a parole by the State Parole Board. The board had unanimously released their decision on the convicted child killer Smith on Thursday, June 12 2008. The decision has put Smith safely behind the bars of the State Prison for another 2 years, till he is eligible for parole again in May 2010.

Eric Smith was convicted for the murder of 4 year old Derrick Robie in 1994. On August 2, 1993, Smith had brutally murdered the child in Steuben County, New York. Smith was a 13 year old teenager at that time. Now a 29 year old man, he still has the parole board in serious doubt about the stability of his mental health.
On the fateful day of the murder in 1993, little Derrick was walking to a youth summer camp in Savona, unaccompanied by his mother for the first time. He was intercepted on the way by Smith, who had lured him to a secluded area. Then Smith had killed the boy by strangulation and striking him with large rocks. Then he had followed his gruesome act by stuffing a napkin in Derrick’s mouth and pouring Kool- Aid over him. After that he had sexually abused the dead boy’s body.
Eric Smith as held in juvenile facility for 6 years. While in jail, he had written an apology letter to the Robie family and had read it out on public television too.
