This is a story about a beautiful young woman who was ruthlessly slain along with her two daughters and her maternal grandmother. It is the tragic tale of a lovely family torn apart by circumstances that defy sensible analysis and seem to erupt all to commonly amongst married couples in our present culture where domestic violence happens unfortunately too often. The "whys" and "how could this ensue?" are questions that will remain moot now and forever. ______________ MILTON BOLZENDAHL has published numerous articles and books.
