Robert Piest
I read the message you left for Robert today and it was like I was reading my own message. The same thing happened to me. I saw the movie and was interested in looking into the story more. I was about 4 years older than Robert was when he was murdered and I vaguely remember scenes on the news of the bodies being brought out from under the house. The same thing happened to me, though. There is just something about this boy when you look at his face that just breaks your heart immensely. I'm not one to cry over things like this that are so disconnected from my life, but I couldn't help myself when I saw this boy's picture. I couldn't get him out of my mind for the longest time and couldn't help but cry whenever I thought of how scared he must have been in those final hours. Heartwrenching. And, cry for his family,too. They seemed like such a wonderful close loving family. I was never able to find a website specifically on Robert, but I do know that his parents unfortunately eventually divorced (from what I could find it seemed that his father had the hardest time getting thru this) His father died a few years ago. His older brother (who was in either college or med school when this happened) became a doctor (in Texas if I remember right)He did alot of charity work and just died maybe around a year and a half ago. Last I could fnd out, his mother is still alive and living in the same town with the daughter. They own a business --Koi ponds--they do alot with the koi society or club whichever it is. I just had to write when I saw your message. I felt a little nuts for feeling so affected by even just a picture of someone I never knew who died so long ago. What is it about this young man? There was just something about him that maybe he had to be a victim to bring it all to an end.
