    A couple of girls I knew growing up, both older than I, were killed by their husbands/boyfriends, whatever. One was shot in the head. The other was killed (I don't know how) and put in the trunk of a car that was driven to another state. That has always haunted me. This nice girl winding up dead in the trunk of a car off of the interstate somewhere. Nobody deserves to die like that.

    I am so sorry this happened. It should never happen.

      also some who didn't make it.  and, yes, it haunts us - but not as much as those who are family.

      there is no "answer" and sometimes there is nothing anyone can do to change the outcome - but SOMETIMES it does change - and with alicia's voice as a guiding beacon, some women will find their way to new lives.
