Donovan Correctional Facility near San Diego in December 2010 before giving a statement for the denial of parole for Brett Thomas, one of two teenagers who murdered her father and sister 33 years ago. Thomas did not show up for the hearing in 2010, but he is scheduled again on Tuesday. FILE PHOTO: MICHAEL GOULDING, THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTERLynette Duncan is going to prison on Tuesday, and she can hardly wait.

She is traveling from her East Coast home to the Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility in San Diego to oppose parole for one of the men convicted of murdering her father and her sister during an Orange County killing spree in 1977.

"Nothing could keep me away," Duncan said.

For more than 30 years she lived with a deep-seated fear that the killers who blasted her father Aubrey Duncan, a billiards parlor owner, with a shotgun on the front doorstep of his Anaheim home on Jan. 26, 1977, would somehow return to harm her or her family.
