  1. Just watched this case on Nightmare Next Door. The thing that really got to me, besides the rape and murder of the 12 year old daughter, was the baby being left in the crib for days, hungry, crying and probably wondering why mama wasn’t coming. That just broke my heart. And the murderer was a convicted child rapist. Why do we ever let these perverts out of prison? Everyone knows they’re just going to do it again. This time around he still only gets life. How many children do you have to rape/kill to get the death penalty in Massachusetts? I live in Texas where we get a lot of criticism for the most executions but, if you ask me, a lot more need to happen.

    • i agree im watching the case now on id..i cant belive the stuff that happened to these two women/young girl.i give the daughter alot of respect due to fighting back.i feel bad for the two boys.god bless you scares me cause im an hour from the crime.

  2. What was the killer? Was he related to mother and daughter? Horrible,horrible case :/

  3. If I remember correctly, he wasn’t related to his victims. He was a convicted child rapist who sometimes stayed with his girlfriend. The girlfriend lived in the same neighborhood as the victims.
    Perhaps, the rapist saw the little girl in the neighborhood and decided to rape her. The whole thing is very sad, especially when the law doesn’t provide for the only equitable penalty in a case like this—which would be death.

  4. G’day from Australia Sean, we just stumbled across NND doco and I looked it up. Hope that you have a great life, sending love from Down Under.
