John Hogan Death And Obituary
No official news has yet confirmed the death of the father who killed his six-year-old son by jumping from a fourth-floor hotel balcony in Crete after being freed from psychiatric care.
In January of last year, Hogan was acquitted of murder when the court determined following a two-day hearing that he had been experiencing "an earthquake of insanity" and was incapable of committing murder.
After Hogan tried suicide four times while on remand, it was decided that he should be kept in a mental hospital to undergo treatment. Hogan's defense successfully contended that he had a family history of mental illness and had not intentionally intended to kill his children.
Hogan will be released after serving less than half of the three-year sentence, despite the judge's recommendation that he stay in the Athens facility.
