Man Who Killed 4 In Aurora DUI Crash Arrested Again

AURORA, Ill. (CBS) — The Aurora man notorious for a deadly car crash that killed three teens 15 years ago was arrested again Monday on domestic violence charges.

As WBBM Newsradio’s Brandis Friedman reports, Randy Visor, 42, served one third of his 13-year prison sentence for the Oct. 17, 1997, drunken driving crash that killed four people.

The people killed in the crash at New York Street and Eola Road in Aurora included Waubonsie Valley High School students – Jenni Anderson, Allison Matzdorf and Jennifer Roberts, all 16 –and Visor’s passenger, 27-year-old mother Ana Pryor of Aurora.

The high school girls were on their way back from homecoming preparations at the time of the crash.

Since he was released after about four years in prison, Visor has been in and out of courtrooms and jail cells for driving on a revoked license, and failing to pay restitution to the victims’ families.

In 2006, Visor was sentenced to 364 days in the Kane County Jail for driving to work on a suspended license. His license was still revoked from the DUI crash.

In the latest incident, Aurora police arrested Visor on domestic violence charges, after punching a 59-year-old man last week at a home in the 100 block of North Loucks Street on the east side of Aurora, police said. Visor was arrested Monday after a warrant was issued, police said.

The arrest warrant came with a $20,000 bond.

    a little over 3 years for killing 4 people criminals in illinois get off to easy

  • Roberta Waker

    And the judges keep letting them out. The Judges need to sentence these repeat criminals to some hard time and stop coddling them. We should fire the judges that aren’t tough on repeat offenders. I hope the family of anyone else this guy hurts or kills sues the Judge that let him out. Maybe THAT will send them a message. Overcrowding in prisons isn’t OUR problem, it’s the state’s problem and if we need to build more prisons to keep these criminals off the streets then we should build them. PERIOD.

    Sounds like a great guy. Wish he would post something here. Bet he has thoughts.

  • pak31

    This guys arrest record dates back to 1992 with an arrest almost every year prior to the 1997 accident. Yet he’s still allowed to go out and live his life……….

  • City Worker

    Sir, may I remind you we here in crook county have the cheapest judges in the country, and the most corrupt, dont think operation greylord was house cleaning of rats, since then the daqley & madaigin mobs have stooges at every dept. and a group of spin doctors, ( monquie bond) seems to be the spokesperson for every dept,….hate to she what she’s raking the taxpayers for….IL. Land of Corruption……

    RWalker- You’re right, there needs to be accountability. Sometimes, the only way to do that is to oppose these judges when up for retention, but it’s tough when there are so many idiots who vote. BTW, we have more than enough prison space, it’s just not being used wisely as there are many occupying cells that are non violent drug offenders. Again, this is the fault of idiot voters making bad decisions and also not keeping these legislators on a short leash.

  • tom sharp

    Show this to the kid that just got 6 years for selling pot. If he gets the same treatment, he’ll be out in 2 months! These judges have to go. Time to clean house–TERM LIMITS OF ONE! Vote “no” on retention of all judges!
