I wept out loud when I read this (see the link at "Final Chapter" below).
I have been following this case several years - since before the killer died (earlier this week). It was a notorious and tragic story, and being a crime fiction writer I had read about it and kept certain articles from NYT because things like this inform my work.
Then this week the obit came for the killer of the poor girl.
Now, today, the open letter from her brother on the death of her killer.
We should all be this good, this compassionate, this wise.
I pray for such a man who lost so much, and somehow manages to maintain his integrity and sense of mercy. Now I also pray for the soul of Kitty’s killer, Winston, and for his family.
Truly William Genovese’s mother was good. May her memory, Kitty’s and Winston’s be eternal, and may her good brother have many, many years. God bless him.
