Remembering Colette, Kimberley and Kristen MacDonald

Colette MacDonald  1943-1970
Kimberley MacDonald  1964-1970
Kristen MacDonald  1967-1970

"If, in the future, you should light a candle, light one for them. 
And if, in the future, you should say a prayer, say one for them.
And if, in the future, you should cry a tear, cry one for them." 

James Blackburn, Prosecutor, 1979

Forty-one years ago today, on February 17, 1970, three precious people lost their lives at the hands of someone they should have been able to trust - - a husband and a father.  Please take a moment today to think of Colette, Kimberley and Kristen MacDonald.  They have been gone forty-one years - - forty-one years that their killer has had that they haven't. 

For my personal feelings on this case, a case I have been interested in and gripped with since 1985, where I have gone from innocent to guilty, please read my post here.  For more information about this terrible crime, Joe McGinniss' Fatal Vision and Christina Masewicz' Scales of Justice are excellent resources.
