Question: Is your family still close to dung?

PS: I cried for hours when i read your book.

From:Trevor Age12

Asked on Tuesday, February 20, 2007 at 05:46:55 PM
Reply: Trevor, thank you for caring enough to cry for Kait. I have a strong feeling that the collected tears of so many people are what is providing the energy to keep us going.

No, we're not close to Dung. He broke off contact with us after Kait's funeral. Our son ran into Dung at Sears a few months later. Dung was there in the company of a woman with two small children. One of the children was riding on Dung's shoulders. Dung pretended he didn't know Kait's brother.

When WHO KILLED MY DAUGHTER? was published, Dung left New Mexico for a couple of years. He went to the Pacific Northwest. When the dust died down, he returned to Albuquerque with a new lady friend named Lisa Prulhiere. We've never met her, but people have told us she looks much like Kait.

Kait Arquette Murder Case
Question: Dear Lois,

I found this site quite a few months ago and recently checked in to see how everything was going, I was saddened to find that the people responsible for your daughter's death have not been brought to justice (yet.) It may seem like a silly idea but do you think some sort of petition to people connected with law or justice would do anything at all to help?
I hope that you can one day learn the truth about Kait's murder,

(From: Emily)

Asked on Monday, February 19, 2007 at 08:28:04 AM
Reply: It's not a silly idea at all, but it's already been done. Several years ago a wonderful young woman named Holly (whom we'd never even met) organized a petition. She collected over 10,000 names, but nobody wanted to look at it.

Question: was dung connection to the auto shop?

Asked on Saturday, February 17, 2007 at 08:01:42 PM
Reply: We have no evidence that Dung, personally was connected to the body shop.

However, a private investigator who had that shop under surveillance for weeks for an unrelated reason has told us that Vietnamese in expensive cars were always coming and going. And Kait told a girlfriend that Dung's Vietnamese group was stealing cars and changing the engine numbers, which would have been a good reason for frequenting a crooked body shop.

But Kait did not state that Dung, himself, was doing that.

Question: Interesting discussion about heroin:

"Dr. Alfred W. McCoy has claimed that the C.I.A. secretly collaborated with Asian drug syndicates and was complicit in the expansion of the global heroin trade from 1970 to 1973 in order to prosecute the Cold War.
McCoy asserts that the conspiracy arose from an alliance between the Corsican Mafia, who had an historical presence in South Vietnam dating back to the French occupation, and leading members of the American and Sicilian Mafia, under the leadership of infamous Italian-American mob boss Lucky Luciano."

Question: who would have had freeest access to the incoming boxes prior to Ray Bowes time there? there was probably a box unloader or two before him? it seems that person(s) might be a good place to look for info. also the person that hired sharon and ray?

Asked on Friday, February 16, 2007 at 07:56:30 PM
Reply: The person who told us about finding the heroin said it was a very small package and she suspected it might be a sample to show the quality. If so, that suggests that this operation was just getting started. She said all the employees had access to the dock and the store room.

The manager who hired Sharon and Ray was Doyle Cawthon. He was a new manager sent from the central office to replace the former manager,Renae Bunn, who was fired between the time Kait's coworker found the heroin and turned it in to the FBI and the time Kait was killed. All that happened in a matter of weeks.

Answered by: Kait's Mom
Question: That location is only a couple of blocks off central avenue, where heroin was probably sold routinely. what other stores were there back then? where else did sharon put her cart?

Asked on Friday, February 16, 2007 at 07:46:46 PM
Reply: She told one investigator that she had a cart at a place called "The Beach." I know nothing about that location. Was it a theme park?

Pier I
Question: I was just wondering why you didn't answer my earlier question about the Pier I stores. I guess it's a question that cannot be answered simply because you don't know.

Asked on Friday, February 16, 2007 at 01:09:52 PM
Reply: I'm sorry. I didn't deliberately ignore your post. Sometimes I'm moving through the message board too fast and inadvertently miss a question. I'll go back down the line right now and respond to it.

Bottom line, of course, is that we don't KNOW the answer, we can only speculate, until we're contacted by Kait's other co-workers at Pier One who have further knowledge to share with us.

snow cones
Question: Just read the latest messages and went back to look at the "possible motives," in particular, the drug-smuggling. What would be easier than to sell drugs from a snow cone stand? It's right there on the street, in front of a supposed "legitmate" business. The snow cone stand owner could easily get a street sales permit. And if the cops were paid off, there would be almost no risk. Only those who know about the drugs could buy them there.

Much less risky than selling on the street in a bad neighborhood.

Asked on Thursday, February 15, 2007 at 08:43:57 PM
Reply: According to people who worked in the retail shops in that strip mall, there were a lot of visitors to that snow cone cart. And those visitors were not customers at any of the shops.

Mary Ann Wallace
Question: Funny that this name keeps coming up.

I have follwed this case from the get go and I am not at all convinced this

was a "drive by". I have already posted my opinion that I think she was
chased twice that eve. I think she was rammed from behind and lost control and attempted to get out. This is where Wallace may have came in. It was said that KAit "trusted all the wron people" and typically women are more trusting. I appalled at how sloppy scene was. Also, I think I recall reading that Kait was discovered in here car "moaning and crying" Correct me if Iam wrong, but id she sustained the brain damage that they say she did, how would that be? I dont think it would be possible. The whole thing stinks...

Asked on Thursday, February 15, 2007 at 04:10:18 PM
Reply: It was only Officer Wallace who said Kait was "moaning and crying." The medics who removed her from the car and transported her to the hospital said she was unconscious. From the time we first saw her, around midnight, until the following night when she was taken off life support, she was in a coma.

Pier I
Question: If it was known that heroin was being smuggled in through Pier I. Why do the stores still exist? The Pier I that Kait worked at on Lomas and San Pedro, no longer exists. But I think there are 3 other stores in ABQ. I'm wondering if the police knew about that?......

Asked on Thursday, February 15, 2007 at 02:46:30 PM
Reply: Kait's co-worker at Pier One, who contacted us with information about the heroin smuggling, did not implicate that store or the Pier One chain.

She speculated that individuals in Albuquerque who were NOT connected to the store, but who did have connections in the Orient, were having drugs shipped to the store by UPS, so those shipments could be intercepted on the loading dock by someone who worked at the store, (without the knowledge of management). If the person they wanted to use in this role was Kait -- and Kait refused to become involved -- that would be a valid reason to get rid of her.

We have no reason to believe that Pier One itself was involved in this.

We do find it interesting that, within days of Kait's death, Sharon Smith's boyfriend, Ray Bowes, got a job working on that Pier One loading dock.

Answered by: Kait's Mom
Question: How certain are you that the heroin came from Asia and not Central/South America? When did Kait meet Dung and Sharon relative to when she started at Pier 1? What circles did Ray Bowes run in?

Asked on Wednesday, February 14, 2007 at 07:40:23 PM
Reply: We feel certain the heroin came from the Orient because of the other contents of the box it arrived in. Kait met Dung in early 1988. She met Sharon in spring of 1989, at just about the same time she was promoted to manager of imported clothing.

We don't know much about Ray Bowes other than that he has a prison record.

Pier 1
Question: Is there any connection between people that worked at Pier 1 and the body shop? Did any of them attend the parties? Have you spoken with the manager that got fired? They must hold some useful information about the situation.

Reply: Our private investigators are looking into this.

who killed my daughter
Question: It took me 2 days to read "Who Killed My Daughter" I went on line to see how it all eneded up. I was horrified to see that justice had not yet been carried out and this nightmare is still on going. I am so very sorry. Have you tried to enlist the help of the new grads from either the FBI or the police force they may be more eager and willing to get invoved and make a name for themseleves. Is Kaitlyn still trying to direct you? I know you'll get em someway.

Asked on Thursday, February 08, 2007 at 05:49:43 PM
Reply: The "new grads" at police departments work only on cases to which they are assigned by their superiors. And the FBI does not investigate murder, because murder is not a federal crime.

another officer maybe?
Question: Anything in your data base on APD officer Steve Nakamura?

Asked on Wednesday, February 07, 2007 at 02:15:02 PM
Reply: According to Steve Gallegos, the lead detective in Kait's case, Officer Nakamura was linked to the auto body shop at 824 Arno, which was why APD didn't question the owner of that shop.

However, Nakamura has also been described to us as the "honest cop," who witnessed the shooting of Peter Klunck in alleged "self-defense" by APD Officers Matt Griffin, Robert Valtierra and Paul Heatley, and told his sergeant that Peter was unarmed. (You can read about the Peter Klunck shooting on the Real Crimes web site at www/ It occurred exactly 6 months before Kait was murdered.) Nakamura's statement apparently got him into trouble with APD, so it's not impossible that he was made a scapgoat in Kait's case and was not linked to the body shop group at all.

Answered by: Kait's Mom
one cop who hung out at that auto body shop
Question: I know for a fact that Frank Arellano, owner of that shop at 824 Arno, stated in a depostion that Todd Babcock, an APD officer, used to fix his car at that shop at night. Babcock also baby sat for Shirley Arellano, Frank's wife or ex-wife or whatever she was back then. So that's one name for your list if you don't already have it.
