According to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, a parole board at the California Men's Colony late Wednesday afternoon denied parole for Frederick Woods, one of three men who kidnapped a busload of school children and their driver in a 1976 ransom attempt.
The children and their driver were buried alive in a truck at a rock quarry near Livermore. The group was able to dig their way to safety.
Woods and the two other kidnappers, who are brothers, were sentenced to live in prison. One of those men, Richard Schoenfeld, was paroled earlier this year. Like Frederick Woods, James Schoenfeld has repeatedly been denied parole and is serving his sentence at the California Men's Colony.
