Mary Thompson

Mary Thompson was a prominent figure in the Eugene community. She was outspoken about her son’s struggle to stay out of gangs and about the dangers other children in the community faced. She even teamed up with a popular high school senior, Aaron Iturra, to educate other students on gang violence. But when Aaron was executed in his home, police began to suspect that Mary wasn’t leveling with them. Two teenagers were convicted of the shooting, but wiretaps on Mary’s phone revealed a startling secret. Eugene’s anti-gang activist was actually running a street gang out of her living room. And as police had suspected, Mary had ordered the hit on Aaron. She was tried and convicted of aggravated murder and hindering prosecution. Mary was sentenced to life in prison, but on appeal that sentence was reduced to 25 years.
