Kaitlyn Arquette
Question: This isn't really a question. I just want to tell you that I know how you feel to lose someone so special to you. My uncle Kenny died when he was 17 years old becasue he was an under-cover cop in Ohio. He left his fiancee' that was going to have his baby 2 months later and his family and friends. I don't know really much about it becasue I was only a little girl when he died. He was shot by one of his best-friends becasue he was going to tell the police that his bestfriends bestfriend was doing drugs and that it was illegal. So my Uncle Kenny's best friend pulled out his gun and shot him in his temples. Not only did his friend hurt my Uncle Kenny's family and life, but he never got to see his child be born and see her grow up. My uncle Kenny's fiancee' gave birth to a 6lb 2 oz
baby on October 2, 1990. My uncles fiancee' gave her the name Alexis Alyssa.

I only get to see my little cousin every year at family reunions, b-days or other special occasions. It hurts to see her though because Alexis looks like my uncle Kenny. My uncle Kenny's fiancee' never married or dated anyone else again becasue of her dying love for my uncle.

About Rod
Question: I recently stumbled upon your book 'Summer of Fear', and I've decided to read all of your books. Upon checking my local library, I only found one book, 'Who Killed My Daughter?' I read it bit by bit, letting it all soak in. I think you've covered your bases pretty well except for one thing. I haven't had time to read all of the posts for the last ten years, so I don't know if this has been addressed before...did you consider that Rod could have been Kait's history teacher? Or a substitute? Is the age gap right? (You never really said how many years apart they were) Does the girl from the other day (she put a post up saying she knew Kait in highschool) know Rod or someone who would have known him? Have you asked the other school systems in Albuquerque? Someone has to know who he is. I wish you the best of luck and all the positive karma that can be had. My energy and thoughts are with you.

Asked on Tuesday, May 02, 2006 at 02:43:08 PM
Reply: Rod contacted us after my book was published. He was close to Kait's age and had gone to school with her. We feel sure he was not involved, other than for being Kait's second boyfriend. Kait was withholding things from him, as she was from us.

8009 Azuelo Rd. NW
Question: On Mapquest .com there is no such address. The highest number on that street is 6899. And it is listed as Azuelo Ave. NW not Rd.

Now the 8009 Amy Ave. NW does exist on the map. It is located in the new area of houses being constructed on the westside by Painted Sky Elementary. The major cross streets are Unser and Ladera.

If this Lisa person got made at you for contacting them or has not answered your written correspondence, chances are 1. Dung has gotten his life together and she doesn't want to dig up the past, 2. They're still up to no good and don't want to be bothered, or 3. This is the wrong Dung Nguyen.

Asked on Tuesday, May 02, 2006 at 11:57:56 AM
Reply: It's the right Dung Nguyen, (though I can see why you would wonder about that, since Dung Nguyen is a common Vietnamese name). At one time Dung did live on Amy Street. I don't know if he still does.

Dung Nguyen
Question: There two Dung Nguyen listed in the new City director. Neither one lists a middle initial. One lives at:

517 Florida St. SE 87108
and the other at:

8212 La Milpita NE 87113

The Lisa person was not listed in the new City directory at all. Whoever posted the Dung N. Nguyen has to work with a utility company or cell phone carrier.

Hi <3
Question: I am very sorry about Kaits death. It is a shame she died so young.

Question: As recently as 3/06, Dung was supposed to still be with Lisa Pruhliere.... His address shows up as the same:

Dung N. Nguyen
8009 Azuelo Rd.
Albuquerque, NM 87120

Phone: (505) 792-2318

He was born January 1962...does that sound right....

Good luck, I hope you can put some pressure on him again.

Asked on Monday, May 01, 2006 at 06:08:51 PM
Reply: Where did you find the Azuelo Rd. address? The house number is the same as the one posted beneath this, but it's a different street.

Answered by: Kait's mom
Question: I read your book and I am so sorry for your tragedy. I check at your website in hopes that you finally get the information you're seeking. I saw in a post that you mentioned somoene that Dung took up with, named Lisa Prulhiere....did you ever try talking to her or contacting her to see if she knows anything? This could be her information:

Lisa Prulhiere
8009 Amy Ave. NW
Albequerque, NM 87120

And I'm not sure if this is right, but she was born in August 1969.

Asked on Monday, May 01, 2006 at 06:03:47 PM
Reply: Our P.I. spoke with her, but she was very protective of Dung and angry at us. I wrote to her, but she didn't respond.

why would they...
Question: How could someone go and kill a person that has so much meaning...Kait ment so much to u and your family why would somebody go and take that away???

I also love your book!!


Asked on Monday, May 01, 2006 at 02:25:45 PM
Reply: Yes, Kait's life held great meaning for us. But, in a broader sense, her life was no more meaningful than the life of any other murder victim. Every murder is an atrocity, leaving heartbreak behind for the victim's loved ones.

Im so sorry for ur Daughters death.
Question: Why can't any one ever seem to come forward when they have information i mean man they could really give some closure to your family. If they were here friends or even her ex boyfriend they should have the heart to talk and tell all that they know. i can't begin to appoligize for what happened to your daughter because i don't know how the loss feels. But i'll tell you one thing you guys will catch the people or person that did this hateful thing to your daughter don't give up faith because GOD will handle all of them in everyway. God Bless u all and your daughters soul.

Asked on Monday, May 01, 2006 at 02:11:43 PM
Reply: There definitely are people -- probably many -- who know what happened. They're either afraid to talk or simply "don't want to become involved." We pray that one of them changes his/her mind and contacts us either by private e-mail at or by U.S. mail at: PO Box 27187, Albuquerque, NM 87125.

You and your family are in my thoughts.
Question: Dear Lois and Family:

I'm a junior high English teacher and have been a voracious reader of your books since I was in junior high. The first book I ever read was called "A Gift of Magic." To this day, I still remember the book's details. I read as much as I could of your books after “Gift” and have passed on that love for your stories onto my students. They have also found a love for your books.

Recently, my Dept. Chair dropped off a copy of Kait’s story. The book has spoken to me in ways I can’t explain. I have always felt a tug with my past, especially to my great-grandfather and grandfather, both of whom I never knew. I have a special connection with my great-grandfather. He contacted my aunt and uncle when they went looking for his grave and couldn't find it. As they were leaving, a tissue my aunt had blew out of her hand, landing on his grave. After she told me this, I felt a compulsion to go to the cemetery myself and find him. I went to the lobby and looked up his name. The reason my aunt and uncle couldn't find him was because his name was spelled wrong in the directory. I explained the problem and they looked him up on a spelling variation of our last name. They found him and wrote his plot number down for me. That's when I felt a twinge—a whisper of something there I couldn't explain. His plot number is my birthday.

I can't explain any of this and I don't think there is one. All I know is, your book has struck a chord with me that I can't explain. I just wanted to express my condolences, even though it's been over fifteen years. You’ll find the truth one day.

Warmest wishes to you,

Dana Wolcott
Long Beach, CA

Reply: Since Kait's death, our family has come to believe in many things that we would never before have considered possible. What we humans think we "know" is but a tiny part of what is "out there."

Question: I really don't have a question but, i go to Thornwood High School and I chose your book to read as and autobiography. I really send out my deep sympathy to you and your family. The book really shows how you kept your head held high and strong for your family. Kaitlyn was very pretty. I really hope you'll find out who did that to your precious daughter. But in the meantime i have to split sorry wish we could talk more because i have lots of Q's. Bye Sincerely,

Question: Hi, I was reading the messages that have been posted, and I wanted to wish you a very happy birthday. I hope you had a great day! Also I was reading about the man who recieved Kait's organs, Have you or your family ever contacted this person to speak about his dream? I think that is amazing. Have a great weekend

Asked on Saturday, April 29, 2006 at 04:25:15 PM
Reply: The organ doner's mother contacted us, which is how we learned about his "dream" while under anesthetic. He even drew a little map of an area Kait had visited shortly prior to her death, and he had other memories of her as well. We didn't talk with him personally, because the subject was too upsetting to him. He has since died. Not because of Kait's organs, but from cancer. Kait's organs did give him some extra years of life that he would not have had otherwise.

Answered by: Kait's mom
Question: I used to go to school with Kait at Highland. We graduated the same year. I left New Mexico in August 1989 to go to College. I still can remember the day Kait's shooting was on the front page. My mom would keep me posted on any news by sending me clipping of the paper. Then your book first came out I bought it. I was in Albuquerque at the time. I just reread your book with the updates. I was wondering if the cold case department of APD was at least trying to find the person responsible for this terrible situation. I now live in San Diego and I can remember hearing about the insurance scams. I was wondering if the McPhee individual ever went to trial? I was also wondering if the national show America's Most Wanted ever ran a segment about Kait? I hope some day your family will be able to rest easy knowing that these people will have to meet their maker one day for this. I was also wondering if the signs that where posted in Vietnamese?

Asked on Saturday, April 29, 2006 at 10:37:58 AM
Reply: No, the APD Cold Case unit is no longer working on Kait's case. The detective who took an interest in it was transferred to another department.

America's Most Wanted did not do a show on Kait's case. However, her case was featured on other shows, such as Unsolved Mysteries, Larry King Live, Good Morning America, Sally Jessy Raphael, and Inside Edition.

No, the signs that were posted were not in Vietnamese. They were in poorly spelled English.

Time line
Question: Is there a time line of events posted anywhere? It could help the process by keeping the sequence of events in order, eg. When did Kait meet Dung versus when did she become his girlfriend? Did she break up with Rod before or after she met Dung? Did Kait get her job at Pier One before or after she met Dung? Did Kait get her own apartment before or after she graduated from high school? All of us arm-chair detectives could get some clarity about the sequence of events with the benefit of a time line. Who knows what theories we could develop from it?

Asked on Saturday, April 29, 2006 at 09:13:57 AM
Reply: That's a good idea. Our problem is that we don't know all the facts to insert in a timeline, because Kait was keeping a lot of things to herself.

Kait met Dung at some point during her junior year of high school. She started dating him then, but had other male friends too, so I can't pinpoint a precise time when "she became his girlfriend."

Kait always worked an outside job while she was in high school, and during her senior year she worked at Pier One Imports. In the spring of 1989, she was made clothing manager. She got her own apartment in May, 1989 -- after completing her final exams, but before the graduation ceremony. She was self-supporting, from her job at Pier One and money from her graduation gifts. She was also taking several summer school classes at the University of New Mexico to get a head start on enrolling fulltime in the fall. She wanted to become a doctor. She refused to allow Dung to move in with her unless he was working, so he immediately got a job at Artwear. (What he was living on before that, we don't know. Kait told us Dung's sister in California was sending him money, but the police have since told us Dung doesn't have a sister in California.)

Almost as soon as Kait and Dung started living together, she became very tense and unhappy. She would come over to our house and had obviously been crying. She said Dung never spent any time alone with her, that their apartment was a crash pad for "his awful friends," and he was gone most evenings and sometimes all night. She said moving in together had been a bad mistake and that she had asked him to move out so her girlfriend, Lynn, could move in with her. We don't know when she started seeing Rod on the sly. We didn't even know Rod existed until after Kait died and he wrote us a sympathy letter.

So much was going on that we didn't know about!!!! If only she had CONFIDED IN US!!!

Question: What color and make was Dung's car?

Asked on Friday, April 28, 2006 at 10:02:29 PM
Reply: He didn't have a car. He either rode around with his friends in their cars or drove Kait's red Ford Tempo.
