Bill Wallshleger: Background documents

By Dan Morse
Maggie Fazeli Fard

These documents accompany the story "After braving memories, could rape victim face attacker?", which chronicles Bill Wallshleger's continued attempts to get parole in Maryland.

He recently appeared before a parole board for the sixth time; his request was denied, and his next hearing is in 2014.

Note: The Post uses the spelling Wallshleger, as does the Parole Commission, though his name also has been spelled Wallschleger in older records.

This is a transcript of 1974 from Wallshleger's first victim. He kidnapped the woman, then 19, on Oct. 4, 1973, while she was hitch-hiking in the District, and raped her at a farm in Northern Virginia.

On Jan. 11, after more than 37 years behind bars, Wallshleger received his sixth parole hearing in Maryland. Prosecutors in Montgomery County, who opposed his release, sent this letter to the Parole Commission.

State's Attorney for Montgomery County

This letter, sent to the Parole Commission in support of his Jan. 11 parole request, was written by a Maryland couple who has visited Wallshleger in prison for years. They view him as a changed man.
