Welcome to my blog
Updated: Nov 6, 2018
This website has been a long time coming! I have thought about this for a couple years now and this is it!
The story I will tell is true.
It is so hard for me to tell…. just as hard as it has been for me to keep silent.
I relive this nightmare daily and think about it constantly, it never ends.
It is here that I evoke my 1st amendment right to exercise freedom of speech.
I will with hold the name of only one person who I have encountered in the aftermath of Candance’s murder. (Only because I promised to keep their name confidential).
If you feel I have been judgmental on my views of you, put yourself in my shoes and ask yourself could I have handled this situation any differently maybe with a little empathy, compassion, sympathy or maybe the truth. If this were your child or loved one would you expect the be treated the way we have?
Our hearts are already broken your kindness would have meant a lot.
This site will allow families to tell their truth after they have lost a mother, father, son, daughter, sister, brother, aunt, uncle, grandparent, cousin or friend. We need to have our voices heard and tell the public our ongoing nightmare after our loved one was murdered.
NO ONE IN THIS COUNTRY SHOULD EVER BE DENIED THEIR RIGHTS REGARDLESS OF THEIR ETHNICITY, ECONOMIC STATUS, OR RELIGION.
If you have a story to tell and would like to have it posted here, please contact me on this site.
This is how we found out about Candance's murder.
On July 13, 2011 after not hearing from Candance for several days, I went online and looked at the Killeen Daily Herald before I went to work.
When I read the following headlines I knew.
POLICE TREATING WOMAN'S DEATH AS HOMICIDE
Killeen police are investigating the homicide of a 36-year-old woman near downtown Killeen after a neighbor found her dead inside a house.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Freedom of speech is a principle that supports the freedom of an individual or a community to articulate their opinions and ideas without fear of retaliation, censorship, or sanction. The term "freedom of expression" is sometimes used synonymously but includes any act of seeking, receiving, and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used.
