Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.).

  4. Roseann was an acquaintance; we sat together in grad school. She was a teacher of the deaf.

    I am in the process of publishing a book of poetry and a poem about her will be included.

    I remember there was an article about the murder in New York Magazine.

  5. Do you or anyone reading this blog know the name of the District Attorney or Assistant DA assigned to the Roesann Quinn murder case?

  6. I live in Shelbyville and I know his family. You still looking for a picture? Steve S

    • Of John? Yes, I am. There is one in an article, but it is very blurry.

    • Glad you know the family. I was stationedin germany with Gene and his family I think they had their first kids over there. Just tying to find them out. I was Baumholder Community and he was in a unit of the 2nd Brigade

  7. Knew johns brother in the army, and wondered what happened to him and the rest of the family
