‘Fugitive mom’ from CV released on parole

A suburban mom from Carmel Valley who escaped from a Michigan prison 32 years ago and assumed a new name has been granted parole, it was reported Thursday.

The Michigan Parole Board voted unanimously Wednesday to release Susan LeFevre from prison, where she has been since an anonymous tip led to her arrest last April, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

The board set the release of the 54-year-old convict for May 19 because of at least 10 infractions she’s racked up in prison, including hiding prescription pills in her cell, according to the newspaper.

LeFevre was living as housewife Marie Walsh when she was arrested in April. She assumed the identity after climbing over a barb-wire fence at a Michigan prison in 1975, about a year into a 10-to-20-year sentence that she received for selling heroin.
