Child Killer Sentenced to Death

by JWC

Joseph Edward Duncan III was sentenced to death by an Idaho jury. In 2005 he kidnapped Dylan Groene and his sister Shasta. During the kidnapping he killed three people: Dylan's brother, mother and her fiance.

He took the children to a campsite and raped them both, but Shasta survived and was eventually rescued when an alert waitress in a Coeur d'Alene restaurant recognized her and called police.

One can only imagine the horrors these children suffered during their ordeal and before the killing of Dylan. The long term emotional effects on Shasta could be devastating and certainly the life she will lead will be forever changed by the actions of this hideous animal.

I for one applaud the jury's decision to have this man put to death. Capital punishment is the punishment this man deserves.

Counselling for Shasta is critical...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

I can only hope that Shasta is getting the counselling she needs in order to help her through effects such a heinous act against her family has had on her.

Any one that does what this words could not describe the person who has done this should be made to die the slowest most painful death possible.
