FREED: Marvin Hereford Executed Beloit Man Outside BBQ Joint, Shouted ‘Racial Obscenities’ at Jury | Tony Evers’ Killers & Rapists #32


Since 2019, Gov. Tony Evers’ Parole Commission has released hundreds of convicted criminals, freeing them early on parole mostly into Wisconsin communities, including more than 300 murderers and attempted murderers, and more than 47 child rapists.

Marvin Hereford was one of them. His release was discretionary.

32nd in the series.

When a jury convicted Marvin Hereford of shooting a 25-year-old Beloit man in the back of the head, he “shouted racial obscenities and attempted to leave the Dane County courtroom,” according to an old article in the Wausau Daily Herald.

He shot and killed Frank Gurley in 1991 outside Mr. D’s Bar-B-Que Restaurant.

Hereford shot Gurley in the back of the head.

Hereford is black. He shouted racial obscenities at the white jury.

Hereford, of Beloit, walked up behind the victim outside a tavern and “shot him in the back of the head,” the old newspaper articles said
