Convicted Killer Frank Dryman Denied Parole for 1951 Murder

Posted: Updated:

GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - A man convicted for murder in 1951 who skipped out on parole and was returned to custody in 2010 was denied parole again.

The Great Falls Tribune reports (http://gftrib.com/1GooLMK ) that 84-year-old Frank Dryman was denied parole Tuesday. His case was placed in administrative review and will be reviewed again in one year.

Dryman was convicted for shooting Clarence Pellett in 1951. Pellet picked up a 19-year-old Dryman who was hitchhiking near Shelby.

After several trials and appeals, Dryman was convicted and sentenced to life in prison, then paroled in 1969. Dryman moved to California before disappearing in 1971.

After 38 years he was discovered in Arizona after Clarence Pellett's grandson Clem Pellett began looking into the fugitive's disappearance.

Dryman was too ill to attend his parole hearing.
