There were two offenders convicted of homicide released on parole in Normal during 2018, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the McLean County Times.

The data shows that a man and woman were released in Normal. The younger parolee was a 40-year-old man sentenced in 1997. The other was a 49-year-old woman sentenced in 2004.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Eric Buckner. He was convicted of homicide in 1997 when he was 18 years old. He is now 40.

Under state law, paroled offenders are still in legal custody of the IDOC, meaning they can be taken back to a correctional center at any time if the state has probable cause or a warrant.
