Court TV - Haunting Evidence
Question: Have you ever tried to contact this show? I love watching this show. Maybe they can help you out. I know they help gather more "evidence" for police to follow-up on on unsolved murders/cold cases.

Asked on Thursday, August 09, 2007 at 12:05:57 PM
Reply: Psychic information is only of practical use if police are willing to follow on it. In our case, APD is not even willing to follow up on physical evidence.

Kaitlyn Clare Arquette
Question: My daughter read your book and encouraged me to read it. I read the book in one day and was absorbed by the amount of contact you had through psychics regarding your daughter. My nephew was killed at age 18 a month before he was to graduate from high school and my sister has never recovered. She would only feel so fortunate to have experienced what you have in the afterlife. You are so positive in all your research regarding your daughters murder. I went to your website hoping for a conclusion and found none. After your book and all your substantial evidence, you would think that the FBI or all the new crime shows on TV would show an interest. To me the real crime is that no one has been arrested. You are a brave and remarkable person and I will pray for you to have closure. I don't have time to go through 50 pages of questions on the internet. My question is: Why has the APD, knowing new personnel are aboard, not felt the need to answer your questions or to investigate further. Someone should be arrested. Send this to Dayle Hinneman at Cold Case Files and maybe something will happen.

Reply: Our family's personal belief, and that of outside investigators, is that a police cover-up took place at the scene, because certain police officers were protecting the criminal activities that Kait was in a position to expose. That would have halted the police investigation right there, because cops never squeal on each other.

The FBI cannot become involved because murder is not a federal crime. They could enter the investigation only if APD invited them in, and APD refused to do that.

I also e-mailed you
Question: I e-mailed you before reading any of these questions/comments. I see now that you have been given the same suggestions in which I gave. Ahh..what to do now? I happen to live in Arkansas which like someone else mentioned does border Texas and may have even been in the "triangle" of drug smuggling. Maybe I can help somehow. Do you have flyers seeking information about Kaitlyns death? If so, I can give you my address and I will post them EVERYWHERE I can. I will work day and night until every last one is posted. I did the same for Trenton Duckett when he went missing. I happen to live in a town overrun with Hispanic, Marsialese (spell check LOL), and Vietnamese. I even worked for a woman who was Vietnamese and was fired when I questioned my paycheck. I know what shady business looks like. My town is a melting pit ..not pot..but pit for other nationalities. You never know who knows what!?! What else can I do Lois? What else is there? It hurts my heart to know that the APD is so useless on so many levels. Has the FBI done anything? Have you checked MySpace for anyone blogging about Kaitlyns death? Can you file civil action against anyone in this case? Such as Nicole Brown Smiths parents did against OJ? File for damages against the officers that left the scene? File a worngful death suit against Dung or even Susan for withholding information? Maybe under that kind of pressure someone will crack! Look at OJ he even wrote a book IF I KILLED HER or something like that. Minds are fragile. Everyone has a breaking point...we just need to apply the right kind of pressure!

Asked on Tuesday, August 07, 2007 at 01:31:59 PM
Reply: Jen, I received your personal e-mail and answered directly, so I won't try to respond to all these questions on the message board.

No, the FBI has done nothing,because murder is not a federal crime and they can't become involved in the case unless APD invites them in. Which APD will not do.

There's no one person we could name in a civil suit, (no OJ for us), because we have no way of knowing who actually pulled the trigger. Especially if this was a hired hit. If you go to the menu on this web site and read the line-up of possible killers, you'll be as bewildered as we are. Any one of them could have done it.

The only IMPOSSIBLE scenario is "random shooting." And that's all that APD will consider.

Question: hi
i was wondering if when kait died did you sense anything coming?

Kait and Dung
Question: In your book you said that Kait and Dung got in many bad fights. Even though that, if Kait wouldn't have died do you think her and Dung would have gotten married?

Asked on Monday, August 06, 2007 at 11:01:46 AM
Reply: Absolutely not.

Question: How has you're life changed since Kait died?
What have you done differentlysince then and what have you done the same?

Asked on Monday, August 06, 2007 at 10:57:03 AM
Reply: EVERYTHING changed.

My husband took early retirement and we left New Mexico for fear of retaliation after my book came out. I stopped writing young adult suspense novels, because I could not create a fictional mystery about a girl in a life threatening situation when our own true mystery was all I could focus on. Everyone in the family developed stress induced health problems. My husband and I created the Real Crimes web site to help other families of murder victims whose cases were not properly investigated get exposure for their cases. And much more.

Betty pt 2
Question: In what way do you believe Kaitlyn moved on?

Asked on Monday, August 06, 2007 at 10:32:32 AM
Reply: It's just a personal feeling. Until after WHO KILLED MY DAUGHTER? was published, I had a strong sense of Kait's spiritual presence right beside me, and she "spoke to me" in dreams that were so vivid that I considered them visitations.

Once the book came out, that sense of her presence vanished and my dreams became ordinary dreams. I experienced the distinct feeling that her job on this earth plane was completed and she had moved on to whatever comes next.

About Kait ♥
Question: I'm a new reader and a big fan, but do you believe that Kaitlyn went to heaven? Well I know that you and your family are still greeving over the loss of your daughter so I will pray for you!! óż you can never loose someone until you lost them!!

Asked on Sunday, August 05, 2007 at 07:16:57 PM
Reply: I'm not comfortable responding to questions about religion, because my personal beliefs are no more likely to be right than anyone else's.

Question: Okay so I've been reading your questions and who is Damon Faye?

Asked on Sunday, August 05, 2007 at 04:10:17 PM
Reply: He was one of the detectives in the APD homicide department at the time of the investigation of Kait's homicide. I think he may now be retired.

Betty the physic
Question: Hello LD I read your book and really enjoyed it but I was wondering if you still keep in touch with Betty Muenich? the physic. If so do you still try to talk to Kaitlyn?

Asked on Saturday, August 04, 2007 at 09:03:59 PM
Reply: We keep in occasional touch with Betty as a friend, but we are no longer seeking information from psychics. We learned a lot that way but feel that Kait has now moved on.

Damon Faye
Question: Will Damon Faye be identified by name in the Talley Keeper even though he wasn't in Who Killed My Daughter?

Asked on Wednesday, August 01, 2007 at 07:13:30 AM
Reply: Many people will be referred to by name in The Tally Keeper, who were not named in the first book. But I will not identify those people who have provided us with confidential information.

Kaits heart and lungs
Question: I just got your new book Seasons of the Heart from and that thing about her heart and lungs blew me away. Is the organ recipient still alive and does he still have those memories?

Asked on Tuesday, July 31, 2007 at 01:13:04 PM
Reply: I'm sorry to report that the organ recipient eventually died of cancer. But Kait's heart and lungs provided him with five more years of productive life than he would have had otherwise.

The Tallykeeper
Question: Ms. Duncan, do you have any idea when The Tallykeeper will be done? I am very anxious to read it.

Asked on Monday, July 30, 2007 at 07:21:54 PM
Reply: I keep adding more to it as more events take place and more information comes in. Each time I think it's finished, something new happens, and I need to go back and add that to the manuscript.

Question: Ok, I was wondering why in your book is there no refrence to Damon Faye?

Asked on Wednesday, July 25, 2007 at 04:31:46 PM
Reply: I never referred to Damon Fay in WHO KILLED MY DAUGHTER because we never had any contact with him.

On pg. 74 of the paperback edition, I quote our oldest daughter Robin as saying, "I talked with my friend Maritza yesterday. One of the homicide detectives is a longtime buddy of hers, and he told her there just no way Kait's shooting was 'random.' He said it has the earmarks of a professional hit."

I didn't identify that detective by name in my book, because I didn't know who he was.

Then, after my book was published, I was contacted by several mothers of other young people murdered in Albuquerque, telling me how Det. Damon Fay kept telling them that they were "just like that crazy Arquette woman" because they were questioning the police investigation. I still didn't link him to Kait's case -- just thought he was someone who had been misled by his colleagues and was quoting people involved in the cover-up.

Then, several years later, Robin regained touch with her friend, Maritza, who had married and moved out of state, and gave me Maritza's new e-mail address. I wrote to Maritza and asked her who the detective was who had told her Kait was the victim of a "professional hit."

She told me his name was "Damon Fay" and "I specifically remember him saying that the location of one of the bullets in the car indicated that the shooting was not random. That the shot had to be aimed at a target. I also recall that this bullet was found later, not during the inital investigation."

That bullet must have been fund during the second-day work-up that everyone except the Criminalistics Dept. denies took place. The Criminalistics Supervisor, (no longer with APD), told our PI that reports of that work-up were sent to the case detectives and the APD records department. Those have mysteriously vanished. And the photos from the second-day work-up have vanished from the APD photo lab.

Question: Hello Arquettes!! Hope you all are doing well. I am currently reading your book (again) and again, I can't seem to put it down. Every time I read it, I find something I had missed before. Anyhow, I was wondering if Mike from the Journal is still helping with your case? I am a resident of Albuquerque, and I am appaled at the lack of intrest this police dept. has taken on your behalf. I have two sons, although they are young, I cannot immagine loosing either one of them. After all of these years, have any of the police come forward to speak with your family reguarding Kait's case, and have any of them had any useful information that could help resolve this case?. I had read your book probbably about 10 years ago for the first time, and I've always thought that the hit against your daughter in someway involved the police. Although I had never considered that the acutual person that shot her, had been a cop, now it does seem probable. Although I have no information to help you, you and your family are in my prayers, and have passed on your book to a number of friends that are just as shocked of many of us on this site. Do you ever return to Albuquerque? Oh one more thing before I close, Has anything come up reguarding Manny Aaragons involvement in this case since he was charged earlier this year?

Asked on Wednesday, July 25, 2007 at 04:11:18 PM
Reply: So many good questions! I'll take them in order:

Mike Gallagher at the Albuquerque Journal remains a friend and supporter. But he is allowed to write only about subjects his editor assigns.

Joline Gutierrez Krueger at the Albuquerque Tribune is allowed much more freedom and she has kept Kait's case alive in Albq.

As for the police -- they want nothing to do with us. When an honest and dedicated former-cop, Don Roberts, was recruited as a member of APD's new Cold Case Squad and was quoted by a reporter as wanting to reopen Kait's case and work with our private investigator to use her new information to help solve it, he was transferred out of the Cold Case Squad. His loss was a terrible blow to us.

Manny Aragon has never been officially linked to any homicide case.

Why is justice on the west coast so slack?
Question: I would like to know why justice west of the Mississippi River is so much more slack than on the east coast? Think about Kaitlyn, JonBenet Ramsey,
Nicole Simpson, and Dominique Dunne's daughter. What is wrong with justice? Are investigators totally naive? I would be so mad and worried if I lived in these communities.
Crime is rampant in places like Seattle. Please respond if you think I am off base in these ideas.

Asked on Wednesday, July 25, 2007 at 09:50:08 AM
Reply: I don't know that it's really more rampant in the western part of our country. There's a lot of police corruption in the east as well. It's true that, we, personally, have been contacted about more such cases in the West, but that could be only because Kait's murder occurred in New Mexico and the families of the victims in the Southwest are the ones who see us as possible advocates.

Haunting Evidence...again!
Question: I was reading up on the show, and came across this on the Carla Baron message board:

"Here is the official announcement on case submission guidelines for possible inclusion on Court TV's "Haunting Evidence":

Submit your case files directly to producer, Tim Robbins, of Departure Films -

(PLEASE - submissions should only be made by immediate family, and/or law enforcement directly assigned to each investigation.)

This is the proper way for the cases to be considered since Carla has no authoritative say in the selection process for cases profiled on future episodes of "Haunting Evidence."

This is the direct responsibility of the show's producers and the production executives @ Court TV."

So there's a second way to submit a request. I would think this would be a particularly interesting case, given the apparent APD involvement/coverup aspect. I have seen Court TV cover cases of bad cops before.

Good luck!

Asked on Wednesday, July 25, 2007 at 08:08:18 AM
Reply: I'm so glad you posted that. Because, although "Haunting Evidence" is probably not right for Kait's case, it could be a Godsend for other cases. We're in contact with many other families of murdered children and will share that information with them.

Answered by: Kait's Mom
Haunting Evidence?
Question: Several months ago, I posted here about a new show on Court TV called Haunting Evidence. I just wondered if you ever checked into having them look at this case. At the time the show was brand new, but there is now a link on the website for contacting them.

Apologies for the length of the link. If I knew how to do a tinyurl, I would.

Kait's death haunts me. I was still in ABQ when it happened, and although I moved away about six months later, I have never forgotten it. Blessings to you and your family in your search.

Asked on Wednesday, July 25, 2007 at 07:32:09 AM
Reply: Thank you for providing the link. I visited the Web site, but we don't have the right case for that kind of show. They want cases that other psychic detectives haven't worked on, and we've already used some of the best psychic detectives in the nation. Also, Kait's case has been featured on SIGHTINGS, which thoroughly covered the psychic angle, so their coverage would be redundant.

But, most important, psychic information is only of value if the case investigators take it seriously and follow up on the psychic tips. APD won't even accept physical evidence like the damaged bumper indicating the PIT maneuver was used on Kait's car.

martha moxley
Question: do you know the story of Martha Moxley? she was killed in 1975. Skakel did get sentenced in 2002 so in other words justice can still happen. you as a writer i am sure knows mark fuhrman. Fuhrman got involved with the moxley investigation and it was solved. do you think you could get in touch with him?

I'ts 2007
Question: Hello. i was wondering if there has been anything happen with this case? It's 2007 now. I just read the book today and I want justice for this woman. I do understand how a loved one can be taken away and no one pay for the crime

Asked on Tuesday, July 24, 2007 at 06:10:22 PM
Reply: Yes, it's now 2007. Yet the very same people who knew who killed Kait back in 1989 STILL KNOW IT!!! And, by this time, additional people are bound to know it, because guilty people talk. They get drunk and talk to bartenders. They confide in their girlfriends, and later break up with those girlfriends. Honest cops, who were restricted by the Blue Code of Silence while they were on the force, retire and feel free to do what their consciences tell them is right.

Every morning when I pull up my e-mail my heart beats faster because THE ANSWER MAY BE THERE.
