Donna Hylton was convicted in a torture-murder case three decades ago. Hylton and several others kidnapped a man and tortured him to death. Some sources have even gone so far as to claim that the man was gay. Whether or not this was true is unclear.
According to the Daily Caller, real-estate broker Thomas Vigliarolo was held for ransom by Hylton and three men and three other women. Hylton was reportedly the one to deliver a ransom note, requesting upwards of $400,000. When the ransom was not granted, Mr. Vigliarolo was killed.
After a trial, Hylton was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Now, Donna Hylton’s name is associated with politics. She works as an activist for criminal justice reform and has played a fairly big role in representing women. In fact, she was a featured speaker at the recent Women’s March on Washington.
“Hylton’s name is listed on the Women’s March website alongside prominent liberals like Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards, activist Gloria Steinem, filmmaker Michael Moore and CNN commentator Van Jones.”
Donna Hylton’s conviction in the torture-murder case has many people wondering why on earth she would be a part of the Women’s March.
On her website, Hylton talks about reform of sorts — learning from her past mistakes and becoming a better person.
