Clemency Hearing – May 24, 2022

We have received formal notification of the Clemency Hearing scheduled for May, 24, 2022 for Frank Atwood, ADC#062887.

The hearing will be held at the Arizona State Prison Complex Eyman location, Rynning Unit at 4374 E. Butte Avenue, Florence, AZ 85132 and will start at 9:00 am.

We have been asked if this is open to the public, and although it is, seating is very limited. There is a strict dress code, extremely tight security & screening process and the time constraints on those speaking. A list of speakers has to be provided in advance & approved, so you can NOT plan to just show up and speak that day. We will encourage those not actively participating in the event to view the hearing virtually, a link will be provided 48 hours prior to the hearing and I will make sure I share here and via social media.

We are asking our family, friends and community to help support us and our fight for justice for Vicki Lynne by submitting a letter to the Clemency Board via mail or email PRIOR to May 17th, 2022.

We can not express how much we appreciate the love, support and prayers that we have been given all these years. We are optimistic and hopeful that this is finally the end of this chapter and we see justice served.


Warrant of Execution

Today the Arizona Supreme Court issued the attached Warrant of Execution for Frank J. Atwood in the murder of my sister, Vicki Lynne Hoskinson.

He is set to be put to death on Wednesday, June 8th at 10:00 am.

As a family, we can not say how relieved we are to know that justice for our beautiful daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin, friend will be seen and anticipate the next 36 days to be a roller coaster.

A Clemency Hearing will be held in this case, once we are informed of the date & how letters can be submitted on Vicki’s behalf, I will update that here and share.

Your love, support and friendship means so much as we walk these final steps. Thank you for never forgetting …
