According to Contact Music, John Lennon’s killer Mark David Chapman has been transferred to a new prison after spending 31 years in a maximum security facility in Attica, New York.
Chapman gunned down the Beatles legend outside his Big Apple home in December, 1980, and was sentenced the following year (81) to 20-years-to-life behind bars.
He has spent the past three decades locked up at Attica Correctional Facility, but on Tuesday (15May12), he was moved to another high-security prison, Wende Correctional Facility in Alden, near Buffalo.
Representatives for the state prison system have not disclosed the reason for Chapman’s transfer.
He has been eligible for parole since 2000, but had his request denied for the sixth time in September, 2010.
Chapman will be able to make another bid for freedom in August (12).
Newly released audio tapes of interviews with John Lennon’s assassin reveal Mark Chapman’s self-confessed “compulsion” to kill the former Beatle.
“It was like a train, a runaway train, there was no stopping it,” Chapman told interviewers in a New York prison more than a decade ago.
The singer was shot by Chapman in New York on 8 December 1980. The tapes were recorded in the early 1990s by journalist Jack Jones, who wrote a book about Chapman and his crime. Chapman describes how he shot ex-Beatle Lennon five times in the back outside the Dakota apartment complex, adding “nothing could have stopped me”.”I was under total compulsion,” he says. “I’m thoroughly convinced in my conscience and in my heart that there was nothing I could do beyond that point to help myself, totally convinced of that.”
