A Day Of Reckoning Denial Of Parole Brings Outburst From Rapist, But Victims Gain Solace
March 4, 2005
By LYNNE TUOHY, Courant Staff Writer

SUFFIELD (Connecticut) -- Convicted rapist Alex Kelly for an hour tried to convince three people who held the key to his early release how much he had changed in eight years behind bars and how truly contrite he was for the pain he caused his victims.

But when the Board of Pardons and Paroles panel Thursday denied his request for parole and refused to schedule a new hearing - meaning Kelly is likely to remain behind bars at least until July 2008 - he may have revealed how little he has changed.

Despite being told by board Chairman Gregory Everett that the hearing was over and that he could make no further remarks, Kelly said to the board, "Why did you come here? This was a waste of time."

It was reminiscent of his reaction to his guilty verdicts in 1997, when he wheeled on the jury and cried out, "Are you serious? I am not guilty. I am not guilty. I didn't do this. Why are you doing this to me?"

For the two women he kidnapped, choked and raped when they were teenagers, who had clutched tissues and each other as they testified Thursday about their ordeals, Kelly's remarks underscored what they had tried to emphasize to the board.

"It shows his impulse control issues," Hillary Buchanan said.

"He's not in control. It was the same Alex Kelly who said, `I didn't do it.' It was that spoiled brat response, `But I want to be free.'"

For Buchanan and Adrienne Bak - both of whom politely declined the board's offer that they could testify behind closed doors if they wished to conceal their identities and remarks - the board's decision was one of few victories in a case that for them has been tortuous.

They spoke through tears and with brutal candor about what happened to them on different evenings of the same week in February 1986, about what Kelly did to them, and threatened to do to them if they ever reported him. He said he would kill them.

At the time he was a champion wrestler. Using his fingers around, or his forearm across, their necks, he choked them into submission.They couldn't fend him off. They believed his threats.

He raped both teens, whom he barely knew, in the cars he happened to be driving on the nights of the attacks.

"He squeezed my throat harder as he forced himself inside me while robbing me of my virginity and all of my innocence," Bak said of being attacked five days after her 16th birthday.

"This was truly the most dehumanizing experience. I went numb on the outside while lying there enduring the most grotesque animal groping me and brutally thrusting into me while I begged and screamed for help...When I wouldn't submit, he choked me until breathing was so difficult that fighting back was impossible."

Four days later he kidnapped Buchanan and pressed his arm across her throat as he raped her and then sodomized her, leaving her bruised and bleeding. She reported the attack to police, and Kelly was in custody hours later.

Buchanan said she believed she might "be able to pick up the pieces of my shattered mind and body and try to gracefully move on with my life" after a trial, but that didn't happen.

Kelly fled the country on the eve of his scheduled trial in February 1987 and remained a fugitive from justice for eight years.

"He left Adrienne and I looking over our shoulders, wondering if he was going to come and make good on the threats he made on the night of our rapes," Buchanan told the board.

Bak recalled that the day Kelly failed to show up in court was the day that she had been looking to reclaim as much of her life as she could. And it didn't happen.

"This was supposed to be the freedom day for me, not him," Bak testified tearfully, as Buchanan reached out to squeeze her shoulder.

"I was going to get the chance to tell my side, after the doubt that had been cast over my family and me...The prosecutor's words were sterile and unemotional: `I'm sorry. He's gone. It's over.'"

Bak sobbed as she talked of how Kelly's threats made her reluctant to press charges immediately, and of how she felt if she had acted more decisively, she could have prevented the attack on Buchanan four days later.

Kelly's arrest brought relief, and guilt, she said.

"I felt responsible, as if I could have prevented her rape," Bak said, heaving for breath.

"This feeling would remain with me - a haunting reminder that I did nothing."

Kelly's parents, Joe and Melanie Kelly, were stoic throughout the hearing and would not comment before or after it. They showed no reaction when the board announced its decision after deliberating behind closed doors for more than half an hour.

Everett told Kelly it was the board's unanimous decision that he be denied parole, because of concerns about the risk he might flee the jurisdiction while on probation or parole, and concerns he might commit more crimes.

"Your release is incompatible with the welfare of society, due to the violent nature and circumstances of your instant offenses," Everett told him.

Everett had taken issue with the fact Kelly enrolled in a sex offender rehabilitation program just one year ago, knowing he would be parole eligible just after completing the program.

"Sometimes that looks suspicious," Everett mused, after noting he had been a parole officer for 20 years.

Kelly replied by citing all the other programs in which he had been involved, saying his was a "graduated" approach to dispelling his own denial about his crimes.

"I wish I could say I was sorry to them," said Kelly, who had earlier been cautioned to address the board only when he tried to turn to face Bak and Buchanan.

"I know it's meaningless, but they deserve to hear it."

Kelly showed no visible reaction to the decision, except to ask immediately, "So there's no more parole hearings?" before uttering his remark about the proceeding being "a waste of time."

Kelly, now 37, looked at his parents and said quietly, "Sorry Mom and Dad" as he was escorted out of the room and back to his cell at MacDougall Correctional Institution.

Former Public Defender Carl Eisenmann, a member of the panel, said afterward that he and his colleagues had been "very moved" by the testimony of Bak and Buchanan.

Both women afterward said they felt a fleeting moment of relief and victory, but hastened to add they also know Kelly will be released eventually. They said despite all of Kelly's remorseful representations, they never heard the words "rape," "kidnapped," "sodomy" or "attack."

Buchanan at one point during Kelly's presentation to the panel wept and dabbed her eyes with a handkerchief. She was asked what prompted the tears that came when panel members were challenging some of Kelly's assertions about his rehabilitation, particularly in light of his arrest in a barroom incident while awaiting trial in 1996.

Buchanan said she was suddenly overwhelmed by the realization that Kelly was being made to "squirm a little," to answer questions people had been seeking answers to for years, and with a great deal at stake.

"He was in a spot Adrienne and I have been in for a long time," Buchanan said.

When he said he can't defend his actions, it made us feel like he was in a hot seat for once in his life," Bak said.

If granted parole, Kelly would have been released in July. Now his estimated release date, according to the Department of Correction, is May 2008. Kelly will be on probation for five years once he is released, and must register as a sex offender wherever he lives.

Bak and Buchanan viewed Thursday as the end of their involvement in the case as witnesses.

"I think we're done," Bak said emphatically, looking to Buchanan for agreement and seeing her nod.

"We're done. We did everything we could do."

"I think we feel pretty powerful at this point," Buchanan said.

I get a glimpse of Alex Kelly's world on the other side of the puddle. He was highly regarded as a chamonix ski bum and befriended some of the best ski guides in the valley. One of those ski bums was a swede named Pelle Lange. Pelle and Alex went on a trip in the late 80's to a little known town in the southern french alps callled La Grave. La Grave had a rickety gondola system used to ferry tourists 7000 feet up the base of La Meije. They talked the local operators to turn on the lift and what followed was a rediscovery of what is now considered to be an Off piste international skiing mecca. Alex was probably one of the first persons to ski La Grave from North America. Pelle hooked up with one of his clients - a brit named Les Harlow and started a ski lodge and guide service which is still in business. Alex had an unblemished reputation and his friends such as Les and Pelle were caught entirely offguard and in a state shock and denial when they heard about Alex's legal problems in the States. As far as La Grave goes, the rest is history.

I think that if Kelly is ever to be released from the big house, he should have a "scarlet letter" type of branding on his forehead warn others that he is !@#$ing pervert and to bring shame to him wherever he goes.
May God have mercy on his soul.

I'm still outraged that his wealthy, arrogant parents, who created and then completely enabled this predator, had no legal penalty. Those that Kelly preyed upon should be able to sue the parents and get 100 times what they spent to make their little boy happy on his European jaunt.

I began looking on the Internet to see what the status was on Alex's release date. I stumbled across this blog and was consumed. I was a resident of Darien, CT during the time when these rapes allegedly took place. Alex Kelly was a friend of my older brother and he dated my older sister during their sophomore year. Alex was always a respectful kid, not to mention he was very popular with both the boys and the girls. I could hardly believe the stories when they first came out only because girls would literally throw themselves at Alex in high school. The thought that Alex had to resort to rape in order to satisfy his sexual urges just seemed unreal.

After hearing of his adventures while he was on the run, I couldn't help but become somewhat angered. If you're innocent, you face your accusers and pray for justice... you don't run! Not to mention, he was living his life to the fullest, while two women were left to put their lives back together.

People change. Alex Kelly is a perfect example of that! His behavior, as explained in the newspapers, at his trial spoke volumes obviously, which he again showed during his parole hearing. He won't get the help that he needs because he has reversed the roles and actually believes HE is the victim!

I also strongly feel that his parents are just as guilty as he is. Where were they? Why didn't they know where their son was on those two nights? Why did they help him evade justice? What sick people!

Our justice system is terribly broken...

That Alex Kelly - what a douchebag. He is just the lowest of the low and I hope he continues to suffer. His parents too - arrogant, cocky bastards in their television interviews, acting like the law doesn't apply to them. He should just waste away in prison where he belongs, maybe by now he's felt what its like to get raped. Or maybe he will in his final years in the Big House.

We can pick our scabs over Alex Kelly's guilt or innocence, and whether he has served enough time in the joint, and whether he is "rehabilitated" or not until the end of time. If Kelly violated my sister the way he did to his two victims, he would be the one looking over his shoulder for the rest of his life. I would have no problem castrating him and cutting his throat. I would then present his testicles to his parents. Sometimes the need for vengeance overrides all else. This would be one of those times.

I remember this trial and that smirk the father always had on his face. I felt a little bad for the mother. Also, another brother died of a drug overdose. Evidently, the parents failed in raising their sons and continue to act as if the are above everyone else. I hope the girls file a civil suit against the family as they visited him and harbored a fugitive. If not he will get out before he is 40 and as he does not have a conscience he will get some kind of a life funded by his parents.

Jusst watched Court TV coverage of the Alex Kelly case. Dispicalbe SOB that he is. Power and money equal entitlement and a blind eye once again. The sickest thing about the case other than the brutalization of at least two women (as many others were alleged to have been raped) is that his parents were known to have funded his fugitive ways in Europe and were never prosecuted for this. The guy is where he belongs. Someone in prison should create the "rumor" that he raped a child and let the other inmates institute "prison justice."

I just wanted to respond to the person who said they couldn't believe a handsome and popular guy like Alex had to "resort to rape to meet his sexual urges." This is a misunderstanding of the crime of rape. Men don't rape because they can't get sex elsewhere! Men rape because it fulfills a need for power and control, and perhaps a desire to degrade and humiliate, that can only be fulfilled through forcing a woman to have sex with him. This has nothing to do with what goes on in consensual sex.

Kelly raped two young, innocent girls and then spent eight years on a Eurpean vacation. We don't know whether or not he raped women in Europe -- only that his two friends there were unaware of any wrongdoings on his behalf. As for his parents, civil court, I agree -- hit them the only way rich CT lockjaws understand or care -- in the wallet.NO WOMAN would ever endure harrassment by the press, by "men", or a disruption in their lives as those two victims did for TEN EYARS -- and not be telling the truth. I agree with anonymous -- if that were my daughter or sister who had been victimized, Kelly's parents would receive his testacles in a neatly rapped box -- from Walmart.
The only thing wrong with our legal system is that it didn't automatically order him and his parents to repay the victims' families for all their court fees and anguish, and that the first tiral was declared a mistrial because juries are human and go by how cute or flirtatious a criminal is; and the fact that the FBI search of the Kelly home was thrown out as evidence because of technicalities. Guilty IS GUILTY and the fact is they found evidence that the parents had aided and abetted a fugitive. If they'd been attentive to either son, the other wouldn't have died from OD-ing on painkillers after totalling his expensive motorcycloe while high-- mix booze and pills and that will eventually happen and they let it -- everyday -- right under their noses. Those were two very bad boys. Sounds also like really criminal parents -- maybe they should be spayed and neutered so they can't procreate ever again!

I grew up in Darien and got to know Alex at DHS in the 80s. He was one of the most popular kids at school, very likable, charismatic, all american looks, and at a time when being cool meant everything, was the guy you wanted to be hanging out with. He always had the hottest girlfriend and girls just flocked to him. He was also very manipulative, mischevious, and could be a total a**hole, but people were always ready to overlook that, and forgive him, as that just being alex...I can see now why it got too his head.

He got into drugs big sophomore year, and were robbing houses with a small crew of his, which in darien, is insane for him to think he'd get away with it. He went away to juvie for a few months after his parents re-imbursed the families for the robberies (like 100K) and even though he projected a reformed image, was still a big partier.

The one person who scared him was his dad. A couple times when he was drinking, and got real with me, said over the years, his dad would beat the hell out of him, was terrified by him. his dad was a plumber, felt always trying to prove himself in upscale darien. his dad was ostensibly friendly, but you could see how he had serious anger/temper issues, particularly when it came to his sons.

The week before Alex's arrest, a well regarded english teacher wrote an article in the town paper profiling Alex and how he had changed his life and was a role model. After Alex's arrest, people were supportive and rallied behind him. How lame was I and people I know? We dismissed the second rape charge because the girl was from "lowly" Stamford. Stupid as hell, but that was darien for you. I remember hanging out by a pool joking with friends about alex making a surprise appearance at our five year reunion. We'd be like "Alex arent you on the lamb" and he'd be like "no it's all cool dude, let's hit the bar."

Regarding his parents, I can't fault them for protecting him, i'm not suggesting it was right, he was their son, im not in their shoes, and they did what they felt they had to. They had the darien dream for a while, if albeit just on the outside/appearances (which is what darien is all about anyway - appearances), but they have gone through alot of tragedy. Their oldest son, Chris, died of a heroin overdose in the early 90s. Nice kid, who also got beaten up by his dad, who was more of the stereotypical burnout (C minus student, where alex was more B), and even though he was a few years older, lived a bit in the shadow of middle-child alex (and i'm sure big time shadow as far as his dad was concerned). The really sad part, his much younger brother Russell, who was a down-to-earth nice kid, went out west, became nature boy and skier. A bit of a dare-devil, wound up dying in a car crash a few years ago. So his parents have one son in jail and two in the grave. Regardless of what his dad was like, and from what i could tell his mom was nice, that's gotta be an awful way to look back on your life when your sixty something years old.

The last time I saw Alex was in the mid-90s just before the trial. We had all grown up, but it was like he hadn't changed. The same arrogance, the same where's the party mentality, expecting everyone to treat him like it was 1985 again.

I haven't thought of Alex in a while and then a few months ago was at a music show in manhattan. The band "Hunting Bigfoot" was playing. I had never heard them before but they put on this insanely frenetic live show. One of their last songs they did was called "Prison sh*t" or I'm assuming is the title cause was a line repeated in the refrain. But was really cathcy and the verses were all about alex kelly specifically. I was able to meet up at the bar for a moment with the lead singer, Paul Rowan, who I learned also went to Darien High. Was a very cool song, also an indictment of Darien in general. He said it would be released on their next cd, which according to the hunting bigfoot website will be out next month, so i keep checking their website for that.

If I sounded symphathetic to Alex, I'm not. He wreaked emotional, mental and physical havoc on two girls in the prime of their innocence and probably deserves more than what he got. I was just throwing out my two cents as someone who knew him.

Whomever wrote the lengthily comment about their personal experience with Alex Kelly really got me thinking of my hometown of Wilton, and the social dynamic of the town during my middle school years. I can't imagine how I would have grown up had I attended Wilton High School. My parent’s owned a Mexican restaurant in Westport. During my middle school years I dealt with an overwhelming amount of racism given my Mexican heritage. I mean, even my friend’s would joke about it, and the word “spic” or “wetback” was used so frequently. I remember the few blacks we had in our school. If you were black, you better have been a good lacrosse player, or watch out….;o) I think the racism had an impact on my sense of worth as I grew up, and likely contributed too much of my bad behavior during my early to mid teens. My parents were smart enough to see the impact the environment was having on my development, and had the type of intuition to send me off to private school. What a great move on their part!

I have a few long-term friends from the area, but always felt this sense of elitism when socializing with the high school classes. Lacrosse was everything in that town, and damn did Wilton rule the lacrosse landscape during the 80’s and 90’s. The rivalry between Darien and Wilton was always big. Part of me had this idealized notion of the Darien social culture, and perhaps it was less volatile then Wilton. After reading the posting above, it sounds as though it was very similar. I remember every time a Wilton house party took place there would undoubtedly be a fight. The sense of aggression in that town was just ridiculous. So much insecurity at the age, but it’s even worse when you grow up in an elitist town. I don’t think my parents even knew their neighbors, and they lived in Wilton for close to thirty years. After selling their house and getting their little nest egg, they made the move to State College, PA. They seem so much happier now, and socialize with most everyone in their community. People actually greet you when you walk down the street, it’s amazing. God, if you greet someone in Wilton they look at you like you’re crazy! I so prefer visiting them in State College then in Wilton. I think I know the type of environment to avoid when I eventually have children…..

The reason I'm going into this whole diatribe about the Wilton high school social culture is to underline the sense of elitism that defines Alex Kelly. It seems after all this time he still hasn't learned to humble himself. That comment he made to the parole board about "wasting my time" is certainly laughable. All you have is TIME buddy, that's one thing you don't ever have to worry about wasting….lol. It's nice when justice is served at all levels of society. I wonder if he would have received the same treatment in the event he raped a black girl from Danbury. That comment about the second victim being from "lowly" Stamford doesn't surprise me...

Alex Kelly is very lucky he never messed with someone like my family and myself.

My father along with myself would have hunted that bastard down no matter how far he traveled, found him, tied him down, cut off his testicles, cooked them over an open fire and force fed them down his throat.

That would just have been the beginning. He would know revenge like no other useless waste of space on the face of the planet.

This country is way too kind. Alex Kelly doesn't even deserve the rights of an animal. Animals have a million billion times more honor then this sorry S.O.B.

I hope he's someone's b*tch girlfriend in prison. It's difficult for me to imagine that type of prison justice in cushy CT however. Too bad he didn't do this in Florida or California.

i live in liverpool in the uk a have just watched the tv movie about the case. it seems to me that the whole of the western world has gone soft on sex offenders. the authorities do not appear to listen to the people who state that sex offenders never stop offending, they just get cleverer at covering their tracks. i personally feel that such people as alex kelly should agree to physical castration before they can be considered for release into the community again. chemical castration nor any amount of courses and treatment will take away their inherent sexual deviant urges. they should also be 'chipped' just in case they still offend using instruments etc. they cannot be allowed back into society without stringent measures. we need to protect the vunerable people from dangerous predators, defenceless children in particular. i hope some legislators read this opinion and use it as food for thought leading to action. i can hope! thank you for reading this, jo h

I just finished reading Saint Of Circumstance, a book about Alex Kelly's crimes.

I have always wondered, in this case, why if he was such a big threat to women, did he not commit more crimes while on the run? It seems like an offender such as he, who in three days escalated to anal rape(from vaginal rape), would have REALLY escalated his crimes while running away.

Since there were no rapes during his Europe years, doesnt that say he is not the big threat the parole board claims he is, and thus, he should get parole?

I read he is up for definate parole May '08. I will be watching for updates to the story. Not much on the web about it, I always google a true crime story once I read it.

Though I don't condone what Alex did, I think his sentence was way too severe. His lengthy sentence had less to do with justice for the victims (which, Lord knows, they deserve) and more to do with the fact that Alex made law enforcement look ridiculous and inept

This isn't about justice for the victims, but it's payback for the relative ease with which Alex dupped LE. The criminal justice system, with its bruised egos, went way over the top in passing sentence. And this was disguised as seeking retribution on behalf of the victims. Nope: It was payback for making the various LE agencies look pathetically inept.

I always found the Alex Kelly case interesting.

I am a male and I am also the same age as Kelly. I grew up on the north shore of Long Island in a wealthy area that is on par with Darien.

Like Darien High School, my high school was filled with rich arrogant kids. Many of these kids were out of control and probably committed crimes that were similar to Kelly's. However, they were lucky to get away with them (unlike Kelly).

Based on the neighborhood I grew up in, I can relate to Kelly. Kelly was probably a spoiled, obnoxious jerk in high school. He is probably still a spoiled, obnoxious jerk (notwithstanding the fact he is in jail).

Kelly committed awful crimes and he ran like a coward. Being rich and handsome he is an easy guy to dislike. Kelly's victims certainly deserve justice, and Kelly certainly deserves to be punished.

However, 16 years does seem a bit harsh. I mean, people commit murders and don't receive that kind of a sentence. Apparently, during his years on the run he caused no trouble and he has been, by all accounts, a model prisoner. If Kelly was not a rich spoiled kid, and his victims not been wealthy attractive young women, his sentence would have been much shorter.

Kelly is a loser, and will always be a loser. However, he's paid his dues. He is probably not a threat to society anymore. His family has suffered great tragedies with the deaths of their two other sons and they should at least enjoy one surviving son.

Kelly should be released when he is up for parole in 2008.

The comments made on 8/13/07 from "anonymous" demonstrate the lack of social morals many (not all) members of the "upper" class have. That feeling of superiority and that they can do whatever they like. Alex is serving 8 years for each rape, that seems minor to what he took from each of the girls he raped. Imagine the look on the face of each of the girls as he held them with a choke hold and raped them. He had no concern for what he was doing to them. He took something that they would never have again, their innocence. He may not have "murdered" them, but he murdered something inside of them that was not his to take. The parent lost their sons, that is sad, but how did they choose to raise their sons, that is what should be asked. At least 2 were involved with drugs and 1 went on to commit multiple rapes. If he hadn't run for 8 years, he would be out now, but he felt he didn't need to pay for his crimes, so good riddances to him I hope that he is in jail until the very last day of his sentence.

Kelly was convicted for violating two women in a violent manner! He does not deserve to be released any earlier than what he was sentenced for. Our laws were created by the majority to protect our citizens. Our justice system has enough problems already-lets not continue the problem. If you are going to force people to be on juries, to determine whether someone is guilty or not then sentence them-leave it alone. Limit the number of times citizens see or think they see "favortism". For whatever reasons, people see favortism everywhere and it leads to too much hate and discontent. Make the same rules for everybody and stick to them. We as people must accept that not all people are capable of being part of our society. God bless his victims they need help to lead the best life they possibly can.

Thank you to the jury to coming to this conclusion.

I am a survivor of rape. What you don't understand is that although rapists receive a sentence of a determined duration, rape survivors are sentenced to the memory of the trauma for life. Ever heard of Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome? In time the survivor gets to the point where it does not occupy every waking moment, but at any time a similar sight, experience, sound or smell could trigger the memory of the whole horrid experience all over again. In some countries, convicted rapists are executed or spend the rest of their lives in prison. Believe me, Alex Kelly and others who get out of jail are not suffering nearly as much as they should suffer.

Alex Kelly may have indeed (and probably did) rape many others, here and abroad, who simply were not able to step forward because they shoulder, erroneously, the shame and the blame. Once released, Alex Kelly may live an exemplary life or he may rape again or even escalate to murder to cover his crimes. The best of all scenarios is that he overdoses or dies in a DUI like his brothers before him. BTW: Why was he not charge with unlawful flight to evade justice?

A previous poster was correct: rape is not only about tapping that ass withouth

A previous poster was right: rape is not about "tapping that ass" or sex or desire, but about a guy exerting his anger and feelings of powerlessness on someone who is weaker and physically powerless to stop his taking his anger out on her. He has been humiliated, so he humiliates someone else. In Kelly's case, a wrestling loss or a fight with his dad could have lead to his needing to hurt someone else, preferably someone weaker.

Did someone actually say women should be less uptight about sex!?!? Did kelly Give these women a chance to say yes or no!?!? Read a little about rape, its about control, if Kelly wanted a willing participant he could have found one, he needed to exert control on someone much weaker than himself, thats what rape is.

Now to the idiot who said women should be less uptight, I get the strange feeling you're the type who hides in bushes and follows women in parking lots in order to satisfy your needs and I wait for the day when someone catches your ass, throws you in prison and shows you what rape really is, waking up to some guy name "meth" sweating all over you and demanding that get on yor knees, write a comment after that experience. Or if there is any justice in the world, you'll attack a woman who'll manage to empty a chamber in stomach, leaving you there to bleed to death as slowly as karma would allow.

Oh yeah, I do know a little about rape, my step father made sure I experienced it every chance he got when 11-13, but maybe that was my fault, maybe I should have been a little less "uptight"

Fortunately the person who placed the post immediately before mine was not the one first-handedly affected by the so called "bad choices" made by Alex Kelly 20 years ago. Turning down a good job promotion, making poor financial decisions resulting in the foreclosure of a home, or speeding along a highway and obtaining a ticket are acceptable "bad choices." Violating another human being is not a "bad choice", but a self-serving malicious act that can never simply be "gotton over." Hopefully the ignorant author of this post will never be put in the position of having to "get over" what Alex Kelly's victims have had to live with.

I just finished watching a TV episode of American Justice about Alex Kelly. I was angry to hear how his parents enabled him to hide from his criminal charges & live a fabulous life for 8 years without any consequences.

Running is an obvious sign of guilt. Innocent people do not run so I found it funny that Kelly was arrogant enough to tell the jury he was innocent when they found him guilty.

I was even more bothered by the update at the end of the show indicating that Kelly was released in Nov. 2007 for 'good behavior'. The women he victimized will live with this for the rest of their lives. Kelly should have to pay for the rest of his life. And based on how the show portrayed his personality, it seems unlikely that he has been rehabilitated or feels any remorse. But I guess when you have idiots for parents who think they are above everyone else, including the law, it would only make sense for their offspring to be just as arrogant.

The lengthy post by "anonymous" on SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2007 10:13:00 PM was excellent. Thank you. Years ago I read a book by a reporter covering the Alex Kelly case and she really dug into his upbringing. How the perfect family image of the Kelly family was just that, an image. The father had a brutal, violent temper and would beat Alex without mercy for the slightest of excuses. The few people I've known over the years that come from similar families often end up permanently screwed up (drugs, prison, unemployed). It takes a very special, strong person to not go down that path.

People try to dismiss childhood circumstance as irrelevant, stating free will and choice. But when it is as disturbed behind closed doors as the case of the Kelly family - there are long term consequences.

Darien in that time period was a very fucked-up place, with tons of nouveau-riche parents of all shapes and sizes who didn't have a clue about how to parent. They were disconnected from their kids' emotional lives in a way that created serious problems for many of them. They thought that providing money and comfort was all that mattered. And they were too busy getting drunk at cocktail parties to notice that they'd spawned a generation of confused little monsters.

Alex was arguably the hardest hit, no pun intended. And I'm not just saying that because he ended up in jail. If you had asked me in 1978 (I was 13) who's the most troubled, most-fucked-up, most potentially dangerous ten-year-old in town, I would have answered "Alex Kelly" in a heartbeat. No lie.

Joe Kelly was an old-school tough who made a killing as one of the local plumbers who you could trust because he "lived in town". But he was a stone-cold thug. He beat his wife and his kids mercilessly, as is well documented now. Everyone in our neighborhood knew that the Kellys were the most messed up kids around. I distinctly recall hearing, for example, about 7th grader Chris getting stoned DAILY with 4th grader Alex before the busses would come to pick them up for school. That's pretty hardcore.

Looking back, it's very hard to understand how kids could get that deep in the shit and not have anyone intervene from law enforcement or social services. I think if it happened today, those kids would be tagged and at the very least assigned a state caseworker. At least I hope they would. And it wasn't just the Kellys -- it was an epidemic, really. They were just the poster children for it.

Don't take this as feeling sorry for Alex Kelly, because I don't, not one iota. But part of me reflects on growing up in a rich suburb in the 70's and wonders who was minding the store. The movie "The Ice Storm" got a bunch of it right, but for a lot of kids, it really was far, far worse.

Jackie, yes, this is an extremely emotional case...not that it's the first rape case of course. But anyway, do you honestly feel better saying that you hope that any daughter of Alex is raped too? Would you say the same to the son of someone who had no control over his father murdering someone with a gun and then making the same wish on said son? I'm sorry, but completely non-thinking, knee-jerk comments such as yours do not help rape victims whatsoever, among other victims of crimes. Try reading your posts hours later before posting them - if you are relatively intelligent and conscious-driven.

He had two other accusers who's parents did not want them to experience a rape trial. One was 13 years old. He is a pure psychopath. He cannot be rehabilitated, he doesn't have the tools (empathy, guilt, a sense of right and wrong), he only has a mediocre sense of how to feign them. He needs to stay in jail forever for the safety of others.

Adrienne's name is very distinctive - it's weird how the internet lets you trip over names of people you've met in the past. This was no "he said/she said" it's very clear from the record that Mr. Kelly is fully in the wrong here. Ms. Bak has every reason to feel confidant that she is in the right and Mr. Kelly was in the wrong. Hopefully, he'll repent of this someday.

I was 15 yrs old and raped in a similar way as those two women, my uncle offered me a ride to my grandparents to do my laundry, he pulled over on the way, raped me and then drove me there after he raped me. We went to 3 trials in high court, he was found guilty all three times, after he appealed for the fourth time they told me sorry but we are going to let him go, destroy his dna from the rape bank and also take the charges off of his record, they told me this after 12 yrs of court dates and torture of retelling my story again and agian in detail, I feel very happy for those two women who won and got justice, I just wish I had the same outcome with my struggle, the only reason he was able to appeal it over and over was for technicalities, not because he didn't rape me but because of the way something was worded in court and so on, I agree with capital punishment, if you cannot control yourself in our society and you force yourself on another you should be put to death like a rabid animal.

The courts are unfair. Many cases are rigged. Lawyers make money and most don't care about their clients, it is just a living. If lawyers break ranks with each other, or act against a judges wishes they can end up arrested, disbarred, and even in prison on usually bogus charges.

This is how judges get bribed and how the US legal system is complete BS. Massachusetts Attorney Barbara Johnson lets the cat out of the bag in [this video].

The US Court system is too corrupt to have the death penalty. Too many innocent people are put to death and too many guilty are never even investigated. We the people need better police and court policies. There needs to be civilian oversight of police and of the courts.

I too am one of those who spent their high school years with Alex. His nickname was BA for 'bad ass'. I guess all stemming from his coke fulled home robberies at age 14 for which he was too young to do serious time.
Yes, Alex was very popular and was dating the most beautiful girl in school. Everybody worshiped him which, I guess, spawned this immense narcissistic attitude he carried around with him. I have heard rumors of other rapes during his high school days, but as we know many go unreported. Just the fact that he was dating the hottest girl in school goes to prove that it was never about sexual desire, but power, period.
I too was blindsided by the news at the time and simply refused to believe it at first thinking, "what does he need to rape a girl for? Most girls would hop in the sack and pay him" (hey I was 16).
What an ass that wrestling coach was (his name escapes me now, begin with a B, but he was a f*&%$#% tool) to write that glowing article right after the rapes basically coming to his defense.
I feel for Mrs. Kelly who has lost 2 sons and now there's only pathetic Alex left. Joe can go screw himself.
Indeed, Darien was a strange place to grow up and most of us have moved far away. I live about 6000 miles away. As for the old hot girlfriend, she has moved on and is happily married with kids.
I hope Adrien and the other girl can move on and live normal lives.

They lack empathy due to poor attachment process and can lie like you cant imagine. Fortunately for my son, I sought out mega help and hes such an incredible human being now.

Before I begin, I wanted to mention one of the deceased brothers of Alex Kelly...Russ. He was not a druggie and his death was a tragic accident. Of the 3 Kelly sons, Russ left home in 9th grade and enrolled in a school, I believe in Colorado. He was a world famous and highly regarded Kayaker who has had numerous articles written about him and whose untimely death left a huge hole in the hearts of all who knew him in Telluride, CO and all over the world. Google his name and hopefully you will see what an incredible young man he was. His death while driving home from the airport after a kayaking trip in Siberia, Russia was a terrible loss to so many.
In all of the publicity shots of the Kelly family during the trials, Melanie Kelly always looked so overburdened and sad. Knowing that her husband, Joe Kelly, was such a brutal man makes me wonder why she allowed this abusive treatment by him. When they married, he was not so wealthy. It is my understanding that while he is supposedly an excellent local plumber, he made his millions in the real estate market boom in the 70's/80's. They have been married since the 60's so at the very least, I would think half of his wealth belongs to her. Why did she not take those boys and leave until someone got the help needed. Imagine how different life could have been for all concerned.
How tragic that Chris and Alex took such self destructive paths.
This behavior began before Alex Kelly within this family and it is continuing after Alex Kelly. There are extended family members of Melanie Kelly who have avoided their responsibility just as she allowed Alex. Mrs. Kelly has a brother who as a young man, Alex actually resembles. He too was not doing well in school so his parents sent him to a Military School. Their parents had a nice life but certainly not to the level of Joe Kelly's wealth.
Her brother also was allowed to shirk all responsibility as he had a daughter around 1969/1970 that he walked away from physically, and financially. This was probably the best thing he could have done as she was never associated with the lunacy of the Kelly/Reisdorf families. This brother continues to tell all who will listen that the government treated his sister terribly during Alex's time on the run. Again, the Kelly family members are the victims...not the young ladies Alex raped. But, this is how that family operates. Melanie's brother, Alex's uncle, has another son and daughter that he did raise and from what I understand, his son is carrying on the family tradition of being irresponsible. This is a terrible cycle. Perhaps instead of "Uncle Alex" continuing to claim his innocence, he should man up and be honest so that the next generation in that family breaks this terrible feeling of entitlement. Perhaps some of the money they spend on Alex could be donated to help rape victims. It would be a good start to show remorse for what was done to these two young ladies.

Okay, I have to put a few remarks from John E. Doulas, a FBI profiler who helped spear-head the FBI profiling program. He says that if an offender does not show remorse, they are likely to offend again. Kelly, after his arrest, with a monitor on his ankle, harassed two girls in a bar, calling them ugly names. Also, while on the monitor he sped away from the police when they tried to pull him over for speeding. He totaled the car and left Amy hurt and upside down, went home and when the police came after him, denied he was in the car. He had alcohol on his breath. He was not supposed to be drinking while on the monitor.
All I can say is that he does not sound the least remorseful and am betting we have not heard the last of him. And to the creep that said get over it: I can tell you first hand, you never, ever get over rape.

Alex Kelly is currently a tandem skydiving instructor and manager of Connecticut Parachutists. I started my skydiving training at this drop zone. I encountered Mr Kelly on several occasions and after seeing that he has not changed, in the least, I chose to continue my training elsewhere. He is regularly strapped to women and doing tandem skydives with them from 2.5 Miles up, most completely unaware of his history or capabilities. Most of the people at this drop zone are very nice and I don't understand, for the life of me, why this company would hire him, placing unaware clients in this type of situations. PLEASE BOYCOTT CONNECTICUT PARACHUTISTS/SKYDIVECT.COM and make anyone you know aware of the reasons for your actions. This must stop. He is still an arrogant, smug, narcissist, continuing to claim to be the victim. These are your daughters, wives, mothers, sisters, girlfriends being subjected to this extremely dangerous and disturbed person.

Kelly did his time. If he breaks no laws. Maybe he should just be able to live his life. What he did as a young adult was criminal. There is a culture of entitlement among the well to do in Fairfield County, Connecticut. That culture of corruption is wrecking the entire nation as these are the movers and shakers with the morals of a crack cocaine whore. Connecticut State Police can rape, rob, beat, set citizens up for false arrests and prison, and even murder citizens with immunity. But, they have badges. They are a bigger problem, individually, than Alex Kelly ever was, or will be. Click on the top banner of this blog to go to newer posts.

Thank you for keeping this blog open and active. I found a LinkedIn profile for Alex Kelly. He no longer works as an instructor for the parachuting place in CT:

This was a horrible, sad case for all involved. I feel for those women and glad they had the strength to stay strong during his run from the law and then the lengthy trials, etc.

Reading the updates on everyone else was very interesting. It is striking how life goes on.

Kelly was very lucky he did not get more prison time. However, he will have to live with the fact that people remember him as a serial rapist. His parents though never prosecuted lost two other sons to untimely deaths.


That being said, he served his time and is now on the sex offender registry.

If he does commit another serious crime, I think the state's attorneys will not hold back and he will spend the rest of his natural life behind bars. .

Actually, he hasn't done a thing and has maintained a respectable life while building his own business. He's kind of the poster boy for reform as it seems because he has more humility and works harder than he probably did prior.

To some, Alex Kelly will never be punished enough, but once you've done your time, supposedly you've paid your debt to society. If Alex's father allowed Alex's ego to get away with him, did not do enough to teach his son right from wrong, maybe some of the blame should be put on Alex's father. If Alex Kelly ever wants to contact me to give him an unbiased interview where there aren't softball questions, and no witch hunt either, I hope he contacts me. I can drive down an interview him, or have one of the women on our still getting off the ground independent news reporting team, interview him. stevengerickson@yahoo.com
