I am so glad I read this. I found your niece Kara's book online and read that first. Seeing how it was written in 1st person fantasy and from memories of a 3 1/2 year old just made me want to know the real story. I have read all Ann Rule's books so know I have read her account but before rereading it, I wanted to read yours figuring it to be the closest to the actual facts.
I can't believe the heartache and "crap" you and your family have gone through. I thought my life had been rough the last couple years dealing with a sociopathic brother and his BS lawsuits since my parents' deaths in 2011. But they were natural deaths. To have lost them as suddenly, violently and young as your parents were is unimaginable.
And I'm so disappointed in Ann Rule. I don't intend to read hers again unless it's to see how poorly it was written. Have all her "stories" been so badly researched and written? I was anxiously awaiting the release of her new book shortly but now I won't bother. There are other true crime writers I like reading but will now do research to confirm the accounts.
Thank you for writing this. I hope it really did help you start healing as much as possible considering. I hope you get justice one day and will search and follow online with that hope in mind.
