Interview with Larry King
Question: I watched the segments of your interview with Larry King.
In that interview, the D.A. said that the defense attorneys of the Hispanic suspects were given those Vietnamese letters you gave to APD.
Is that true?
If so, why were you never able to obtain copies?

Asked on Friday, February 04, 2011 at 09:56:41 AM
Reply: Following "Discovery" APD was legally obligated to release all information and materials they had about Kait's case to the Hispanic suspects' defense attorneys. (Actually, they didn't do that; they withheld all the information our family provided to them about the activities of the Vietnamese.) They DID release the Vietnamese letters. Those attorneys didn't bother to get them translated, as they realized there was so little evidence against their clients that they wouldn't be prosecuted anyway.

Since the police had forbidden us to communicate with the defense attorneys, we didn't know they had those letters. We discovered that several years later and asked for copies, which the defense attorneys provided. We had them translated, and they didn't contain much of importance. However, there's no way for us to know that the defense attorneys were given ALL of them. If APD could withhold information from the case file, withhold their report of their second day interview with Sharon Smith, and withhold all reports and photos from their second day work-up on Kait's car, they could have withheld other things as well.

Kait Arquette video
Question: I just watched the 4 segments of the video your daughter Robin filmed about kait\'s case with the interviews with you and Don, your Pi, and that important witness. You have everything nailed down. With all that to back you up how can you be ignored?

Reply: If law enforcement doesn't want a case to be solved, it doesn't matter how much incriminating information you provide to them.

Answered by: Kait's Mom
Question: I\'m a sophomore in high school and friend told me about your book. I\'m sorry about what they did to your daughter.Im confused about one thing though. Can you explain the witness intimidation section? what is the theory behind all of these \"alleged suicide attempts\"? Also, who do you truly believe killed your daughter?And what do you believe was their reason? I hope to hear from you soon. Thank you.

Reply: How often do half a dozen people, all closely linked to a murder victim, immediately suffer slashings and stabbings after the victim's death? And as soon as the arrested suspect, who appears to have been set up to take the rap, is released from jail, with all charges dropped, he is shot in the stomach? (Alleged suicide attempt?) And, about that same time, a second suspect (charges dropped) is found lying in his doorway with his wrist slashed?

Don't you find that a little suspicious?

All these people had possible (make that probable) knowledge about Kait's death and/or the circumstances that led up it it.

We don't know who pulled the trigger on Kait. There are too many possible suspects, including the possibility of hired hitmen. In that case, the question is, who hired them?

Why was she killed? Of that we are certain. Kait was a potential whistle blower. She was in a position to expose information she'd learned from her boyfriend, Dung Nguyen, about a variety of criminal activities. She was shot to death on the day she broke up with him.

Coincidence? We don't think so.

Kait's purse
Question: Was Kait carrying a purse that night? Was it returned to you or placed into evidence? If you got it back, did you search through it to see if there were notes or anything else that might contain information about where she went that night during her three missing hours?

Asked on Sunday, January 30, 2011 at 12:16:29 PM
Reply: Kait's purse was returned to us by nurses at the hospital, (I don't know that the police ever saw it). Of course, I looked through it. The only thing of interest was her "Daily Reminder," a calender/address book. Also, the fact that there wasn't a single penny in her wallet. I know she had money with her that night, because she told us she was going to stop on her way to Sharon's and buy ice cream to take for dessert. Sharon says she did not arrive with ice cream, so there should have been cash in her wallet. Even if she made a different purchase, there should have been change in her wallet.

But the most bewildering thing is, there was no blood on her purse. When a woman drives alone in a car, she places her purse on the passenger's seat. The Medical Examiner said that the blood pattern on Kait's clothing and the lack of blood on the dashboard and steering wheel indicate that, when she was shot, she fell immediately to her right. Det. Merriman says when he found her, she was lying across the two bucket seats with her head against the passenger's side door. Therefore, she should have fallen on top of her purse. She was bleeding profusely. Blood was all over the passenger's seat and the floorboards on that side of the car. How could it not have gotten on her purse?

This fact supports our suspicion that Kait's car was forced off the road, across the median, and into the post, and THEN she was shot. Might she have been preparing to throw open the driver's door, jump out of the car, and run? A woman's automatic reaction if she's leaving a car is to grab her purse. She doesn't stop to think about doing that, she just does it. If Kait was shot with the purse in her hand and then fell to the right, the purse would have had no blood on it. And it would have been exposed and obvious to anyone who looked through the broken window. Is it possible that Paul Apodaca, found standing next to her car, reached in and got her purse and cleaned out the wallet -- then dumped it back in through the window when he saw Det. Merriman arriving?

Pit Technique
Question: I was looking at the map, and if someone were to use the pit technique, wouldn't they have glass in their tires?

Asked on Saturday, January 29, 2011 at 07:05:30 AM
Reply: With the PIT technique, there wouldn't have been any glass at the place the car-ramming occurred. The pursuing car would have clipped the right side of Kait's rear bumper, (which is where there was damage to her car.) If her car then traveled over the median, hit the pole, and became stationery, and someone approached on foot and shot her through the driver's window, the glass would have been THERE, not back at the spot over 700 feet away where she was rear-ended. And someone would have had to clean up any glass that fell out of the broken window and go back and pick up the broken pieces of Kait's bumper so they wouldn't be found at the spot where she was rear-ended. Which would not have been hard to do. Remeber, there were people at the scene before investigators arrived -- Paul Apodaca and his friends, and perhaps others as well. a whole clean-up crew.

Answered by: Kait
Something seems wrong.
Question: If you really think about it, wouldn't the car swerve to the other side of the road? If she were shot on the left wouldn't her head hit the wheel swerving it to the other side of the road? I am not sure, since I don't drive, but it has been bothering me.

Asked on Friday, January 28, 2011 at 10:28:43 PM
Reply: You are absolutely right. Besides that, all physical evidence indicates that she didn't even fall forward, (no blood on the steering wheel or dashboard or even on the left side of her clothing,) she fell immediatly to the right.

If she were shot while driving, gripping the steering wheel, she would have twisted the wheel to the right when she fell.

The fact that the car not only "swerved" left, but did so with so much momentum that it leapt the median, crossed two traffic lanes, and went up onto the sidewalk, (when she couldn't have been pressing on the accelerator), would appear to indicate that her car was struck from behiind and forced to the right (using the PIT technique, which is taught in police academies) and came to rest against the pole, and she was then shot by someone on foot while her car was stationery. Damage to the left rear bumper of her car supports this scenario.

GOOGLE "Pitt Technique" or sometimes spelled "PIT technique" and you can find a diagram of how this is accomplished.

The Peter Klunck Radio Show
Question: My name is Velma Martinez. As you well know the 27nth of this very month will mark the 22nd anniversary of Peter Klunck's murder. If you receive this comment in time I would love to have you as a guest on my next blog talk radio show Wednesday the 26th. Of course, the full hour will be dedicated to Peter and what happened to him and those around him that were involved. There is so much I would love to discuss with you. For instance I did reach former Seargent Heatley a few years ago and asked him for an interview. He said he was 50/50 on granting me one. Said if I got others to talk then he would agree...... and that is just one small part of what I believe to be strange occurrences since I have started digging in APD's cesspool of corrupt activity. I am an unemployed journalist (NMSU 1991) Perhaps eventually we can meet over a cup of jo and talk cause there is just too much for one to write in a comment post.
My email is To learn more and listen to some archived shows google The Peter Klunck Radio Show. There is no doubt in my mind that Peter and your daughter knew something that found them in the most tragic of circumstances.
My radio show is about all police murders/brutality mainly here in The Duke City and I am very proud to have Peter's name as it's title. Justice here is long overdue. Let me know what you think.

comment about your book
Question: I\'ve always had an interest in \"true crime\" novels, and came across your book about Kait while shopping. I, like some of the others who\'ve posted was so moved, and upset about the case. When I finished the book I immediately went to the internet also to see if the case had been solved. From reading the book, it is so evident of police corruption, cover-ups, etc. I\'m truly sorry for your loss & hope one of the cold case squads as seen on tv can eventually solve this case. The book was so real & raw, it\'s like I felt your pain and every emotion you were going through. God bless you and your family. [Tamika from Indiana]

Reply: As you can tell by following links on this Web site, the amount of new information we have unearthed and, unbelievable as this seems, STILL are uncovering since I wrote WHO KILLED MY DAUGHTER is mind-blowing.

For instance, we have recently been contacted by a woman (I'm keeping her identity confidential) who had a very revealing conversation with the case detective, Steve Gallegos, immediately after the Hispanic suspects were released and APD dropped off the unsolved case, declaring it "solved."

Such people continue to contact us. And their information -- when added to information from other sources -- continues to fill in missing pieces of this jigsaw puzzle that appears to have been invented by a madman but which, we're becoming convinced, will turn out to be quite simple once we are given that all-important final piece that will make the whle picture come together.
Thank you for caring.

Asked on Sunday, January 02, 2011 at 10:33:59 AM
Reply: Well, I personally hope that it's "sooner," because at our ages there's not too much "later" for Don and me.

However, two recent developments have made us very hopeful about the eventual outcome of Kait's case and the effect it will have on a number of other suspicious death cases and illegal activities that led up to them. (1) New people who have become emotionally invested in Kait's case have entered our lives to help us, and these are people with heft who have federal connections. (2) New informants have contacted us with valuable information. And When Don and I check out of this world, the next generation will step into our shoes. Kait had two sisters and two brothers, all of whom adored her, and none of them are dummies. Kait's oldest sister, Robin, (you know her from WHO KILLED MY DAUGHTER?), is a videotographer. She decided that, since everyone's aging and some witnesses and informants are slipping away, it was time to get all the case information on tape. So she and a colleague recently spent a week in Albq., filming lengthy interviews with private investigators, friends of Kait's, and witnesses (who APD declined to interview), so none of their info will ever be lost. The least we will get from this is a documentary that contains, along with the interviews, names of suspects in both the shooting and the cover-up, details about the case that no one has disclosed but will now become public knowledge, crime scene photos (including some we weren't supposed to have access to), and a great deal more.

This can prove invaluable in a variety of ways. And it's not going to die when Don and I die. It's THERE FOR A PERMANENT RECORD and I can picture it, not just in the hands of the feds, but on shows like Dateline. I just viewed Robin's tapes myself and am blown away by seeing a condensed version of all that our 20 yr. accumulation of documented information adds up to.

Reply: It sure sounds like we need you standing behind us!

If, as a former police officer and a politician, you have contacts at a federal level who would be receptive to receiving information about corruption and cover-up, please contact us by private e-mail. We have the info. We even have it on a video. But we need someone with the right connections and the sort of passion that you have to help us get it into the hands of the appropriate people.

Reply: As the winter closes in
We sit close again,
Turning pages of the years,
Pausing now and then

To recall a magic time
Or a special place.
Springtime sunlight leaps at us
From a smiling face.

Summer laughter rings anew,
Mixed with autumn tears.
Seasons blend and mesh and blur
With the flying years.

Guard the album of the heart.
There the memories are„ź
Gentle as the drifting snow,
Holy as a star.

I have a personal Facebook page under the name Lois Duncan. It is open to the public, so anybody can visit it. However, only my "Facebook friends" can post on it. I'm trying to keep control of that page, since it IS a personal page, and am only accepting "friends" who are people I know personally.

Somebody has also started a Lois Duncan Fan Club page on Facebook. Anybody can join that, and I try to respond to their posts.

I also have a "Lois Duncan" Web site, ,for kids who are fans of my novels. That has nothing to do with Kait's case, it's all about my books. There's a message board there, and I respond to all questions.
