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.).

dv awareness

From LaBranche’s appeal: On the afternoon of August 29, 2005, motorists witnessed the defendant’s mother, Jane Labranche, lying by the road outside of the home she shared with the defendant in Franklin.   Several witnesses stopped to help Jane, who was covered in blood from repeated stab wounds.   One witness testified that Jane told him that it was her son, the defendant, who stabbed her and that he was still in the house.   Jane later died from multiple stab wounds.   After Jane was seen lying by the road, the defendant was seen leaving the house and driving away in his Chevrolet Nova.   Later that day, police found the defendant in Concord sitting in his parked Nova.   He was arrested for the murder of Jane Labranche.
