Question: I was reading a post from, probably about a year ago, or so. It had something to do with the story being turned into a movie. You said that Hollywood directors wouldn't be interested in something that doesn't even have an ending and you don't think they would want to make up 'a happy ending.' It isn't true that Hollywood wouldn't want to turn an Unsolved Case into a movie, they did do the Zodiac story, which still to this day has not been solved. You should try to find a way to get your story of your daughter turned into a movie. It could help find out more information, and maybe some people might start coming forward.

Do you think some day you and your husband might ever try to get in contact with Dung to see how he's doing, and maybe if he wants to talk about what happened?

Reply: I've resisted optioning the rights to Kait's story to film studios, because once Hollywood buys the rights to a story, they can change it into anything they want. The author of the book no longer has any control. I saw that happen with I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER; they inserted an insane fisherman who wasn't in my book and had him decapitate my characters with an ice hook. I want to keep Kait's true story just the way it is.

We have tried to contact Dung. His girlfriend called the police and accused us of harassment.

Question: The students at Fatima School liked your book, Summer Of Fear.
Keep writting your books. We liked your book very much.

sorry for your loss
Question: I know this is really stupid, and you may not even use this. But I sometimes watch the \\\'Tyra Banks Show\\\' and next Tuesday she is suppose to have John Edward on her show, and maybe he would be able to help you get some information on the murder on your daughter. I know on Tyra\\\'s website there\\\'s a way you can get in contact with her, and maybe someone watching the show might know something and get in contact. I don\\\'t know, just a suggestion. If you want a link to her site where you can get in touch with her I could send it to you.

Reply: Thanks for that information, but we feel we've consulted enough psychics. The ones we did consult were the best of the best, and I don't think there's much to gain by consulting others.

Question: This is the same girl that posted the sorry message. I'm almost done with the book, chapter 26 and i was just wondering do you still keep in touch with betty or the other psychics you seeked answers from?

Question: I read your book probably 8 years ago, and I just found it again in my room so I decided to read it again.
It's been a while since I read it, so I can't remember if you guys did this or not. But have you ever tried Ouija? A lot of people thing its crap and fake, but I tried it one time to get in contact with my deceased geandfather, and the other person who was doing it with me knew absolutely nothing about my grandpa or family, and I didnt know my grandpa's birthday and year he was born and such, and everything that was said turned out to be true. I know you can't really use an Ouija as 'correct information' but, then again, you never know what you could find out, and if you believe in that stuff, like afterlife, and spirits wanting to get in contact with people somehow, than Kaitlyn may get in contact. I'm sorry I don't have any information on anything.
I was actually thinking of the book the other day, and when I had woke up, I had, had a dream about it, so I wanted to go on the internet to see if the case had been solved or anything, but I see it hasn't, and I'm sorry to hear that. I hope in time you all find some closure. And the people who did the shooting, even though they have yet to be found, I'm sure they're not living a great life, constantly looking over their shoulders. It's disgusting to think there are people in this world that can shoot a young girl, your daughter was so beautiful and young. It's just really wrong. Sorry this got really long. Anyway, I'm sorry for your loss, and I hope you find more information soon. Bye

Reply: Thank you for the suggestion, but the idea of using a Ouija board makes me uncomfortable.

Yes, it does sometimes appear to work. When our son, Donnie, was ten, his bicycle was stolen. We reported the theft to the police, who told us bicycle theft was rampant and there was little chance that the bike would ever be recovered. Donnie and two of his friends decided to consult a Ouija board, which over and over again spelled out the word "air." That made no sense to the children or to my husband and me when they told us about it. In fact, we lectured them about being so silly and superstitious.

One week later, as we drove to the airport to pick up friends, Donnie almost jumped out of his seat. "There's my bike!" he shouted. Chained to a fence in front of a run-down apartment directly across from the airport was a bicycle that did resemble his. We stopped the car, and my husband got out to check the serial number. Incredibly, the bike was Donnie's. We phoned the police, who went to the apartment to retrieve it.

Now, having told that story, I still think I'd rather not go that route. The bicycle incident could have been just coincidence. But if there really are restless spirits out there contacting people on Ouija boards, how can you know who or what they are? Evil entities could come through just as easily as Kait could.

One more thought
Question: In the 'Motives" section, under Drug Smuggling, the text reads: " Kait’s co-worker discovered that shipment and reported it to the FBI. This information was not made public.  However, shortly thereafter, the manager was fired and replaced by someone from the home office. Two weeks later, Kait was murdered."

I know you have written here that the FBI can't take the case if the local police don't ask them for help, but if this smuggling involved crossing state lines or national borders, and the co-worker had reported it to the FBI, then the drug smuggling was THEIR CASE! Kait's murder so soon after the smuggling was reported should at least raise suspicions.

Makes you wonder.

Asked on Monday, September 24, 2007 at 10:11:13 PM
Reply: It definitely does make you wonder.

The only possibility we can come up with is that the FBI had their own agenda. It's recently been disclosed that FOR OVER 20 YEARS the feds have had certain political VIPs on their radar screen, looking to get enough evidence for a major crack-down on their criminal activities. That means they were doing that at the time of Kait's murder. If they suspected that one of those VIPs was linked to the heroin importation, Kait's death might have been an inconvenience because the exposure of her killers would have exposed evidence that they were stockpiling in order to get the people at the top of the pyramid.

If anyone out there has a better speculation, we'd be glad to hear it. It makes no sense to us that the FBI would bury this unless it was part of something bigger.

To Kait's older sister
Question: Oh, Robin. Your personal loss is so overwhelming, and the response of those who should help you learn the truth of Kait's death is so unethical and perverse, that it is understandable you might think Kait's death is empty or pointless. But no mature person who has read your mom's book or followed this case fails to see meaning in Kait's life, or her death, or your family's investigation. We readers can see more easily see the patterns that ripple out from her life because your mom's book and this site make them visible; we don't see just Kait but all of you and your search for the truth, the whole web of meaning.
I've asked myself, "Why Kait?" Think of how many people knew the same things and still remain silent, in the face of her murder and who knows what else. How did they know she was dangerous to them? The despicable people who killed her could not have imagined that any young girl would actually have more of a voice after death than before. But she was not just any girl, or I wouldn't be writing this today, and thousands wouldn't be checking this site in hope of a resolution in the case. Her connection to you and her mother and the rest of your family was so strong that she could reach you from the other side, which got your investigation off the ground. And I don't for one minute think her urgency was solely to ease your sorrow. She wanted to be heard. What she knew was important. Your mom's book and this website have made her voice heard all over the world. God bless you and your family.

Kaits sister
Question: Is Robin the same sister who composed and sang the lullabies that were played at Kait's funeral?

Asked on Saturday, September 22, 2007 at 02:28:10 PM
Reply: Yes. But those lullabies weren't written for Kait. Robin and I created the "Songs from Dreamland" tape as a gift for Kerry's daughter Erin, (Don's and my first grandchild, and Robin's first niece). I wrote the lyrics and did the narration and Robin composed the music and performed the vocals and instrumentals.

Kait loved that tape. Even as a teenager, she played it when she went to bed at night. We played it in her hospital room when she was in a coma, hoping Robin's voice might get through to her. Two of the songs, "Ship in the Night" and "Wish on a Star" were played at Kait's funeral. You can listen to portions of them at

The Timeline post
Question: I read "Who Killed My Daughter" when it first came out, and have followed your case and posted here occasionally just to show my support for your quest to learn the truth. Your response to the timeline post jumps off the page in light of how the book unfolded. When you started, you pretty much knew nothing but the fact that Kait was shot, apparently as she was driving. And "what happened" was so obscured that you learned key information through dreams and psychics. But over the years, Kait's death and your attempts to learn what happened to her uncovered a whole world of corruption, far beyond even the complex Vietnamese gang activities that in the beginning were so unexpected and shocking.

The irony is that whoever killed Kait do so to cover up this whole nest of crimes and criminals but has only succeeded in creating a situation in which more and more inevitably comes to light. And while you may not know exactly what happened, who exactly pulled the trigger or who exactly ordered it, you know she was killed because they feared her. However short her life was, she had and continues to have a powerful impact, even beyond the criminal enterprise she has exposed through her death. And she will continue to inspire other parents and siblings and spouses and children to ask questions about the deaths of their loved ones.

I know you are going to learn the truth. It's like you are untangling a ball of yarn but you won't be finished until you reach the end. There's just more corruption than you or anyone else would have imagined.

Answered by: Kait's Mom
Question: I've been turning this case over in my head for several days now. I'm pretty sure someone mentioned making a timeline somewhere on the message boards- the timeline I am interested in revolves around Dung. Didn't he know Kait worked at Pier One before they started dating? There are so, so many pieces to this puzzle, but I'm starting to think they are all involved- that is, EVERY suspect and EVERY motive are entwined. So, maybe a timeline from years back, of Kait started the job this day, then met Dung, then found out about the insurance fraud.. I guess what I mean is, Dung was told to befriend someone at pier one to eventually intercept drugs. I also wonder if Kait wasn't killed because of something she knew, but as a warning to Dung (or someone else?).
I feel bad posting here; I don't have any information, and I probably can't come up with any theories that you and your family and PIs haven't all ready thought about. I hope I am not being pushy by spitting out half-cocked ideas. I wish I could be of use.
Just wanted to let you know you are in my thoughts.

Asked on Friday, September 21, 2007 at 09:24:39 AM
Reply: We’ve constructed the time line, and it’s interesting for many reasons which I won’t go into here. Thank you for suggesting that we do that. It was a very useful exercise.

However, your suggestion that Dung may have become involved with Kait because she worked at Pier One doesn’t pan out. They started dating in February 1988, and Kait was hired at Pier One in June 1988. She got that job through a girlfriend who also worked there. So that appears to be happenstance.

However, we’ve discovered through private investigation that Dung’s group was involved in many areas of crime and apparently took advantage of every opportunity they could latch onto. The activities that we know about (and there probably are others) include: car wreck insurance fraud; drug dealing; importation of porn from the Orient, which they allegedly sold to a video store that was owned by the father of a police officer; theft of computer chips from companies like Intel and Phillips Semi-Conductors; arson; and car theft – (we’ve been told by an attorney that members of Dung’s group stole getaway cars for APD Officer Matt Griffin, who was arrested one week prior to Kait’s murder and subsequently convicted of bank robberies and murder.) Griffin was one of the cops who hung out at the auto body shop on Arno where the VW bug fled after leaving the scene of Kait’s murder.

Although Dung didn’t start to date Kait because she worked at Pier One, it makes sense that his friends later got the idea of using her position there as a way of importing heroin. Apparently she refused to be involved in that.

I totally agree with your statement, “There are so many pieces to this puzzle, I’m starting to think they are all involved – that is EVERY suspect and EVERY motive are intertwined.” We have a link chart that connects almost everyone and everything that is mentioned on this Web site. The new information, recently posted by the wife of a retired police officer, that Officer Wallace (first officer dispatched to Kait’s scene) hung out at that body shop, and her boyfriend, Alex Marentas, (later head of the Police Union), was a field officer at the scene, involved in collecting evidence, provides an additional link.

So, on and on it goes. Can any of you, out there in Cyberspace, inject another piece into this horrific jigsaw puzzle?

Question: It still hurts my heart that you all have to wish Kait a happy birthday without her here and with her killer (s) out there without paying for their crimes. Maybe they have paid with their lives. Many people die without us knowing about it & karma has a way of showing her ugly face. I come to this site several times a year with hopes you have new information & the Tally Keeper will finally be released with all the information leading up to how you found the killers. I pray your family will find this. Kait deserves this. Please, if you are out there - come forward and give this family what they need. They will keep you in their hearts forever for it.

Forever praying for you. JB

Reply: Thank you for watching over us for so long.

This may come as a shock to those of you who keep up with this case, but I don't want Kait's killers to be dead. I don't want revenge. That will come in good time to all who were involved in the murder and the cover-up. God takes care of that. What we -- Kait's family (not just me, but her father and brothers and sisters who loved her so much) --need to put our hearts to rest is to know and expose the truth about what really happened to her.


Speaking for myself only -- not for certain members of our family who don't agree with me on this issue -- I personally don't believe in capital punishment.

Question: Hello Ms. Duncan.
I've been a big fan of your books for many years. My boss is on vacation this week, and I was reading stuff on wikipedia, which led me here.
I'm appalled. Seriously, there is no one in this country that can make the officers who swore to uphold the law at least consider the evidence you have uncovered? Couldn't the governor order an investigation, or allow the FBI in? If there is anyone I can write a letter to, I would be more than willing. I wish there was more I could offer to do.
I am curious about the autopsy report. Shouldn't that be made available to you if you ask? Couldn't you see who the medical examiner was, and ask about the bullets? There are so many glaring holes in this investigation, but this one seems easy to track down, and obvious to anyone as a mistake.
I need to catch up on posts, and buy the book- how did Kait meet Sharon, the new friend?
I find the fact that no one stayed with her until the ambulance came.. well.. appalling. Again. The feeling I get about that is a crooked cop said "leave, because you don't want to see what I'm going to do" (be that pick up bullets/glass/wipe fingerprints). I can't believe anyone can exist with this on their conscience.
I'm sorry for your loss.

Reply: In the many years since Kait's death, we have approached everybody we could think of for assistance in getting Kait's case thoroughly and honestly investigated. Either we receive no response, or we're told that any concerns we have should be taken to APD.

DA Bob Schwartz told us that he had no authority to force the police to investigate cases in which they've lost interest because he worked for the county and APD worked for the city. Attorney General Tom Udall made an appointment with us and then stood us up. The FBI said they couldn’t become involved because murder’s not a federal crime. US Attorney, John Kelly, declined to meet with us. The INS would not respond to our certified letters. Gov. Gary Johnson did not wish to become involved and forwarded our letter to the Department of Public Safety. DPS Secretary Darren White, (a former sergeant at APD), said the DPS will not review another agency’s murder case. The American Civil Liberties Union said they could not become involved, because it was Kait’s civil rights that were violated, not ours, and Kait can’t file a suit because she’s dead.

I could go on and on, but suffice to say, we’ve knocked on every possible door. “The System” does not work the way the public thinks it does.

The only person willing to become involved was the late Steve Schiff, United States Congressman from New Mexico. Congressman Schiff wrote a letter to Attorney General Janet Reno, requesting that the Justice Department look into a possible police cover-up. The assistant attorney general of the Civil Rights Division responded that the federal five-year statute of limitations prohibited their doing that.

We do have a copy of the autopsy report and have many questions about it. Our P.I. met with Dr. Patricia McFeeley, Office of the Medical Investigator, who found our questions valid. She said the OMI would be willing to conduct a reinvestigation of Kait's death, assisted by scene photos, scene reports and other physical evidence to which the OMI did not have access when performing the autopsy, but they had to have the assistance and approval of APD. APD would not grant that assistance and approval.
