  1. To the family, my sympathies are with all you at this time. You all are in my thoughts and prayers

  2. Christopher Vaughn is evil. Are there evil people living amongst us? The answer is probably yes. Are we in imminent danger? Probably no. The chances, statistically, of being the victim of someone so sinister and diabolical are extremely low–but it does make one wonder about the dark side within. What about that neighbor who is reclusive or mean? Most people have an occasional dark thought–it passes as we acknowledge its worthlessness. Recently I heard a poignant message—Hating someone is like ingesting poison everyday and hoping the recipient of your hate will die. Most mature people who possess good critical thought processing do realize what is wrong and understand the concept of advancing beyond adversity and charting their destiny through wise choices.
    It is because of this that I don’t live in fear. It is rare that this aberrant behavior is displayed in society, relatively speaking, when one considers there are approximately 300 million people in the U.S.
    As for Christopher Vaughn. I never once thought him to be a victim. I was fairly certain he was the perpetrator.
    While some women have killed their children, they have almost always, if not absolutely always–had very troubled minds prior to the incident. In each case I recall–Marilyn Lemak, Andrea Yates, Susan Smith, there was a common thread preceding the act, of depression and mental fogginess. I saw no evidence of that at all in Kimberly Vaughn. And when women kill, usually it is not because they hated their children–quite the contrary-they were doting loving moms, therefore they killed in more humane ways, such as suffocation or drugs.
    This murder was very violent. Nothing in Kimberly Vaughn pointed to that. No mental illness, no depression. She had just finished her studies related to criminal justice. She had every reason to be upbeat and in love with life, and it appeared she was, and her children had been infected with her passion for life.
    Mr. Vaughn took their lives just before Father’s Day. Is that relevant? It may be. When I look at their family picture where the family was featured in the home section of the Sun Times, I see a detached person in the photo. Perhaps he couldn’t reconcile the contrast of the appearance of the “perfect family” with the loathing he had for the family life–the responsibilty, the financial demands, the genuine empathy that is required of a good parent and husband. I am fairly certain he wanted no ties, and absolutely no child support to pay. His thinking was so skewed that he probably believed that everyone would believe his story. Many narcissistic souls believe they are smarter than other criminals.
    In the end, he was tripped up by himself, and for that–society is better off. But he has wreaked havoc on countless individuals, many of them children, as they deal with this horrific injustice. May those who are righteous and good recognize the blessing of not being in Christopher Vaughn’s skin, for it is an awful place to reside.

  3. I don’t get it…

    I mean… I try but I simply cannot understand what would drive one person to kill another.
    There are two cases in the news within the last two weeks that specifically stand out to me. First, obviously, is the case of a pregnant woman in Ohio that …

  6. On a recent news report it was indicated that CV has hired a high power defense attorney ….when this attorney was asked how CV is doing he said “he is in good spirits” ….

    WHAT!!!

    If he is innocent,,,(which I am NOT saying he is) , wouldn’t you be distraught that someone killed your wife and kids???

    And if he is guilty (which I think he is), how could you possibly be in good spirits unless you are absolutely EVIL.

    I am no defense attorney, but I am surprised that this comment was made/ Does anyone on this blog have any idea ?

  10. I thought the same thing when I looked at the cheap family photo used as an advertisement for the homebuilder – he looks creepy. I was married to a man and had a family with an aloof arrogant person who always photographed like that – he was miserable and self absorbed, unfriendly to the neighbors, and my whole existence was to make him look good. Everyone thought we were the “perfect” family – Something happended and I finally woke up and we have been divorced for quite a while, he has never been much of a parent to the kids – just glad to be out of it and he detests every dime of child support he is forced to pay – however, I am glad I didn’t wait too long. My parents cried and cried because he looked so much like my ex – especially the look in his eyes and his demeanor – they kept thinking how that could have been their daughter and grandchildren. For someone like me, it is easy to spot a man like that – I was Kimberly Vaughn.

  15. What “IS” happenining with this case? Why all the secrecy? The Bobby Cutts murders happened at the same time and he has already been convicted and his trial was made public, like most trials are. Why sealing of evidence, why, why, why? What’s up??????????

  16. Well, here I am again 2 months after I posted the last letter and still nothing on good ole Vaughn. Nothing has changed, still no word on anything. I really think he killed his family, but all of the secrecy and stalling from the states attys. office, could lead the common joe to belive that they have a very weak case! Get on with it, let the games begin, do something. Rediculous. Get him to trial, either let him go or fry him.

  21. I went to school with Chris. He was always very nice and quiet… a thoughtful guy. I was very saddened when I heard that he did this horrible thing. The Chris I knew would not have done this. I suppose people change.

  22. Yea it’s been over 2 years, The secrecy of the whole thing, the length of time on this case. All I can say is “when it finally gets to court,””IT HAD BETTER BE GOOD””. I am in agreement with the above, the scumbag needs to go down. What on earth is the system waiting for, him to die of old age. Quit wasting the taxpayers money and get on with it.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  25. I am a victim of domestic violence – the abuser lied to courts, paid my lawyers and took my little ones – have not seen them in 4 years. He was diagnosed as a malignant narcissist with psychopathic tendencies. He also is a druid and wanted me to be part of his religion which I refused. I fled with my children but lost the battle – he had money (computer specialist like Vaughn). I believe he would have killed me and the kids if I had not left – he took out a large insurance policy on me. He brought strange people into our home that were very hostile to me and the children. I believe there was a plan afoot. He molested our children, now has them and remarried a lawyer! I pray every day for their return. I am paying child support even though I declared bankruptcy. There is no justice – no one would listen to me after he muddied the water. Pray for my little ones.

  26. I was best friends with Abi and the rest of the family, as i was next door neighbors with them for years. Abi and i held hands on the first day of first grade, because we were the only people each other knew. Today she would have been turning 17. God help us all.
