The body of my friend Sherry, who was kidnapped and murdered Jan. 7, 2012 has finally been found. We can now lay her to rest. I wish I could say this terrible ordeal is over, but now we face the judicial system. So many mitigating factors. They estimate it will be at least 2013 before the trial even begins. If the death penalty is sought, by the time the appeals process is exhausted, it could be another 20 to 30 years.Somehow it doesn't seem right. The criminals have more rights than the victims. Sherry lost her life probably within minutes, which may have been a blessing. Where was her appeals process? Where was her offer of free room and board, medical care, college education etc.? Sherry loved life. She loved people. Where was her chance?
