One of the victims of the first and only triple murder to take place in Cape, Girardeau, Mo. This murder was drug related, and involved three killers. One of the killers was sentenced to death (the first in Cape Girardeau County to be sentenced to death) and was executed August 28, 2000. The other two were given life sentences. The trial became controversial when KFVS TV from Cape Girardeau (Channel 12) went into the house in which the family had been murdered and filmed the crime scene (chalk outlines and all) and aired it on the news. They were accused of contaminating the crime scene, but the killers were still found guilty.
