    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. 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 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS. NOR IS THE BLOG OWNER RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE'S OPINIONS OR FEELINGS. STATEMENTS MADE AS COMMENTS ARE OPINIONS, GIVEN FREELY BY THE COMMENTORS.

Victoria Cushman murder 8/11/1989 Providence, RI *Jeffrey Scott Hornoff wrongfully convicted of her murder until Todd Barry finally pled guilty, sentenced to 30 years in prison*

Vicky Cushman
Vicky Cushman

Please remember, here the focus is on the victim, Victoria Cushman. There are many sites focusing on Jeffrey Scott Hornoff, the wrongfully convicted man. However, it seems like Victoria Cushman, the actual victim, has been forgotten. I was able to find pictures of Hornoff and Barry, but nothing of Victoria Cushman. If you have a picture of her that you would like to share, please let me know. Thanks!
