According to a 2011 Star Tribune article, David Brom might be eligible for parole as he approaches his 70th birthday in 2041. He is serving three consecutive life sentences -- carrying a minimum of 17.5 years each.

Brom, who was 16 at the time of the killings, is incarcerated at the Minnesota Correctional Facility at Stillwater. His latest photo shows a  "robust and smiling man," who is reportedly a model prisoner.

Earlier this year, the Rochester Post-Bulletin printed a story implying that the house where the murders occurred might be haunted. The woman who currently lives in the house is quoted as saying "I don't want to talk about it."
