Kristen Crowley killer dies in prison

(Continued)

Crowley’s mother, Susan Gove Ramunda, asked how Dykens could have managed to dig up a 47-pound landscaping boulder by himself while holding Crowley down.

The Parole Board suggested Keegan was trying to minimize the role he played in the death. “I could have saved Mrs. Crowley’s life,” the inmate said at one point. “I could have prevented the entire crime had I followed my conscience.”

In prison Keegan got a bachelor’s degree from Boston University, became a minister and prison reform activist, while marrying a woman he met through the website HotPrisonPenPals.com.

Last June Peabody Mayor Ted Bettencourt led officials in dedicating a section of the city bike path, the Independence Greenway, in Kristen Crowley’s name.
