Surviving the Death Penalty ...... a parallel story of a death row murderer and the victims left behind. This is the true story of one of the most heinous crimes committed in Indiana. This story is not only about a cold blooded crime, but also about the journey one travels as a victim...including letter confessions from the murderer. ...
Victims of Violent Crimes...... Something inside me broke. It was as if someone had taken a lovely crystal glass and crushed it with one tight squeeze. Shattering it into tiny fragments. My entire body was thousands of slivers of glass that had broken with three simle words, “They are gone.” In such a brief second all had changed. Violent crimes occur every day. However, they are not supposed to happen to us. Right? It took many years after the loss of my family to learn how to cope and survive, day to day, minute by minute. I hope that I can offer some help and insight for you as a fellow victim of violent crime. Hopefully this book will help to understand the victims world and help victims to move forward.
