Kelly Advocated For Her Husband, Billy Flynn, In The Past For His Parole

The couple married in 2006 while Billy was still in prison!

In the 90s, the scandalous m*rder case of Gregory Smart took over the media, which convicted his wife, Pamela Smart, and her ex-lover, Billy Flynn, and his three associates. Today, Billy is out of prison, living a quiet life with his wife.

Key Takeaways

  • Pamela Smart, then 22-year-old media coordinator, had an affair with 16-year-old student Billy Flynn and seduced him into kil*ing her husband.
  • After serving nearly 25 years in prison for the mu*der, Billy was released on parole in 2015 and now lives quietly in Maine with his wife, Kelly.
  • Kelly Flynn, a divorcee who started writing to Billy in prison, has stood by him and helped him reintegrate into society.

Billy Flynn was then a 16-year-old student at Winnacunnet High School who had an affair with 22-year-old media coordinator Pamela Smart of the same school and later killed her husband.

During the trial, Flynn testified that Smart had threatened to break up if he did not comply with her demand, claiming she feared losing everything in divorce.

The case inspired multiple documentaries, including the 1995 movie “To Die For” and the 1996 American Justice’s “Crimes of Passion: The Pamela Smart Story.”

In a surprising development, Pamela has finally accepted responsibility for the mu*der after 34 years, which she had denied multiple times in the past.

This has led to many searching for Billy Flynn’s whereabouts and the details surrounding his life.

Billy Flynn Lives Peacefully With Wife Kelly Flynn

After serving nearly 25 years, Billy Flynn was released from prison on parole on Thursday, June 4, 2015.

Today, the 50-year-old lives quietly in an upscale home on 3½ acres with his wife, Kelly Flynn, in Maine.

The couple married in 2006 while Billy was still in prison.

Kelly was a divorcee and started writing to him in prison as she came out of a 12-year abusive relationship.

To answer why she started writing him, she said,

“Maybe part of the initial attraction was that he was in a prison cell and he could not hurt me. I had all the control.”

Kelly Flynn

When Bill and I met six years ago[2002], I felt an instant connection with him. I knew from the start that my relationship would be a changing one.

Written words led to phone calls and visits, and they fell for each other.

In 2008, Kelly submitted a letter to the court requesting his parole, which mentioned that she would help him turn his life around.

I am not naive, but a 39-year-old woman with a teenage daughter, so I know there will be adjustments for all of us, and some of them may be hard.

Kelly Flynn

She continued,

Whether you decide that he gets out now, in a few years, or in many years, my commitment to him will not change. I am in this for life because without him, I would have less in my life, and when I think of my future, I cannot see it unless it includes him. He is the heart of me.

Kelly Flynn

It was also reported that Kelly’s daughter wrote another letter in his support, indicating she would not be living with her mother if Billy was there.

During the trial, it was revealed that Kelly worked as a bank clerk.

It is unknown whether she is still involved in the same profession due to their absence from social media.

Billy maintains privacy and has avoided social media as he was warned by a parole board member, Leslie Mendenhall, who spoke at his hearing on March 12, 2015.

She told him to avoid media spectacle when he was released and gave him advice:

“Do it in peace. Do it in quiet. Don’t let anybody know where you are. When the requests for interviews come in, ignore them.”

In Case You Didn’t Know

  • Billy Flynn was born on 12 March 1974 in Seabrook, New Hampshire.
  • Pamela Smart has earned two master’s degrees behind bars.
  • She released a videotaped statement owning her mistake as part of her latest sentence reduction request.
