After our daughter's murder, our lives were impacted not just by the loss of our child, but by the police, lawyers, court system, and media.
We met many supportive people but often felt like we were being victimized over and over again. The things lawyers insinuated, sensationalized media, feelings of being under constant scrutiny. Our privacy was invaded and needs ignored at a time when we felt most vulnerable.
Two years after our daughter's death and shortly before the trial, my grandson took his own life. He had been so tormented by her loss and was never able to talk to anyone. He is at peace now beside his mom.
