OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The question remains; how dangerous was Mattieo Condoluci to others when he was killed this month?
On May 14, prosecutors say James Fairbanks, 43, killed Condoluci in his home near 43rd and Pinkney St.
Fairbanks allegedly sent an email to media outlets and told police he did it because he knew he was a sex offender and didn’t want him to hurt any other children.
Condoluci, 64, served 1 1/2 years of a 5 year prison sentence for sexually assaulting a child in Sarpy County in 2006, and got probation in Florida for similar crimes against a child in 1993.
A 2009 appeal to the Sarpy County Mental Health Board indicates that a state psychologist concluded Condoluci was “a dangerous sex offender unable to control his criminal behavior” during a 2008 evaluation.
The mother of Condoluci’s first child victim, Laura Smith, says Fairbanks should be freed.
“This is a man (Fairbanks) who has 2 children who’s a good dad. He belongs home with his children, and that to me right now is the devastating part of all of this,” Smith explained.
Omaha Police say a sexual assault allegation was reported against Condoluci in November of 2019. There were no others prior to that in Omaha dating back to 2006.
Fairbanks is still being held without bond at the Douglas County Jail for 1st Degree Murder.
