What's the REAL cover??
Question: I just got through reading your book Who Killed My Daughter and my question is this--- Why wasn\'t anything actually done by the APD to solve Kait\'s murder??? I felt that certain detectives was \"protecting\" the Vietnamese gang(s) that were involved. I also felt that her boyfriend knew who shot her when he stated \"It\'s all my fault\". I have a great love for true crime books & mysteries and I knew when I saw this on, I had to read it. I pray that the higher ups will get their acts together and actually solve this case instead of trying to sweep it under a bush somewhere. Your book also opened my eyes on how local law enforcement treats certain people. I figure if they did it to the family of a very popular best selling author, they\'ll do it to anyone and everyone.

Reply: I, too, believe the boyfriend knows who shot her, as he was phoning people, saying, 'They shot Kait!" three hours before police informed him.

At this point, I believe the current new batch of police have been so brain-washed by the cops who were involved in the initial investigation that they truly DO believe it was a "random driveby shooting."

Question: Lois, when I was younger, I read your book about Kait. I was truly inspired on how you turned your grief into action. Later in my life I came to lose a child. I know you and Don are doing what you are because of your love for your daughter and I pray that you find the answers. I understand losing her is pain that will never go away. Finding out what happen will be part of the grief process.

If anyone with information is reading this, please... you may have children of your own. Think for just one second what losing them would be like. It sickens you to even try to fathom... even for that one second doesn\'t it? Try to understand this is what mothers and fathers of lost children feel like EVERY day. Find it in you to come forward with your information.

Reply: I am so sorry for the loss of your child. It truly is the pain that never goes away.

I have a feeling that the person who finally comes forward with information that will solve this case for us will probably be a woman.

Response to WJ's Dec.11 entry and tribute to you
Question: Firstly, I want to chastise the poster, WJ, who posted the ridiculous and ludicrous comment about your attitude and being rude! Does he not read these postings? I have marveled at your fortitude and the difficulty factor involved in reading and answering these questions and posts. A month or more ago, I discovered this site and scrolled thru and read some posts. While many posters are truly sincere, there were some who posted hateful, arrogant comments and some that I took to be insulting and taunting. What patience you showed in responding.

On those that I read you were controlled and responded as if they were sincere and asked them to contact you if they had information. These I'm speaking of were some that were obviously taunting and cruel. I do not know how this poster can make the assertion that he did. I would tend to believe that he is one of those posters and this is merely another angle of sarcasm. He states he will not follow the case. Wow, what a disappointment. (but I bet he will). Obviously, he has his own issues and uses this as a forum.

On a personal note, I am a former high school English teacher and college admissions director who is now a K-12 guidance counselor. I had read your books, I recommended them as a teacher, and I reread them occasionally for pure enjoyment. You are a master storyteller and suspense weaver. I am saddened again thinking of your personal tragedy in the loss of your daughter and offer up a special prayer during this holiday season that a cold case miracle will occur and mete out the justice that is deserved.


A Kansas educator...............many good wishes to you...........

Reply: Thank you for your compassionate post. I'm guessing that poster may be the boy who was using this message board to ask one of the girls in his class to go to bed with him. I probably WAS rude when I responded.

your attitude
Question: I am truly sorry to hear of your daughters murderer (s) not being caught. I vaguely remember hearing of her death all these years ago. I truly sympathize. I also understand that this is so hard and frustrating for your family. What I dont understand is your attitude towards people writing messages to you. At times you seem almost rude. Is is understandable that you are stressed and frustrated. It is not acceptable to me that you have a bad attitude towards those writing in to you and offering prayers and support. I for one hope your daughter gets justice, but will not follow this case anymore because of your attitude.

i know how you feel
Question: in your book who killed my daughter, you said that you felt like you should tie here down and not let her go. what made you think that? and why did you not listen to that little voice?

i sorry for being so rude. but i know how you feel. and they found my brothers murderer, but it does not help. it does not bring him back.

the last thing i said to my brother was that i hated him.i remember saying that and then that dreded phone call. no matter how tuff you are you cant forget that phone call were those people say that your loved one has just been...been...hurt. and they are on a ventalater.

so i had a girl friend drive me to the hospital, and when i got there, that look that the doctor gives you. you cant forget that either.the first thing they did after giving me that look as i watch his chest go up and down not willing to eccept that i know what the doctor was going to ask me.

and he did. he said if you sign these papers, we can take him off life support and let him pass peacefully.i said give him two days, but nothing improved, so i took him off.

he had knife taken to him at a bar when he was on vacation in san fransisco.

Reply: I'm so sorry about your brother. I understand what you went through, and it breaks my heart.

To answer your question, at times, every mother gets attacks of irrational nervousness about the safety of her. Most of the time they're unwarrented. We can't give into those, or we'd become so paranoid we'd keep our children in cages.

Kait was 18, a high school graduate, self-supporting, and living in her own apartment. I could not have controlled how she spent her evening. But, if I HAD tied her up and kept her from going out that night, she would have been killed the next night. They were going to get her, one way or another. The only hope for her would have been to have told us everything that was going on. Perhaps we would have been able to smuggle her out of town without the preditors catching on until it was too late.

Question: i can not come to my sences after reading your book. it is heart-breaking to here that you have to live every day of your life knowing that your daughters murderer is still out there. i know you will just say thank you for your consideration, but no one should have to live with this pain every single day. even if they were to put dung in jail,you would still feel the guilt. i am still very young, but after reading your book it has brought me to the reality that it can happen.

I appologize for bringing up your sorrow past,

The Holiday
Question: Dear Ms. Duncan,
I just found your site. In the back of my memory I remember your daughters murder. I can't tell you how sorry I am to know that so many years have passed and her murderer (s) remain free. Especially, due to Police Corruption.

Nine months ago today, my nephew whom I helped raise was murdered. His death devasted me and our family. It My nephews case remains unsloved. I call his detective every two weeks. I try to ensure they always know we will never rest until his killer is brought to justice. They tell me, not to lose hope, that years can pass and they find justice, how can they tell me that? What do I care that years can pass and they'll find him. I want him caught, today NOW. His murderer Celebrates the Holiday\'s.

How do you do it? Knowing that his killer celebrates them and my nephew does not, gives me grief and immense anger. I have a small nine year-old and because of her I decorate by gifts, but though I try to hide it from I cry every day. She and he were so close that his death destroy her little heart and I feel guilt when she sees me cry. His birthday is on the 27 of December and I've planned a small dinner in his memory. I pray at his grave for a closure I know will never come. I do have a support group, as I joined a local chapter of Parents Of Murdered Children. And they have been a salvation to me.

All I can say to you, is if my nephews death has hurt me so terribly. I can only imagine what your daughters has done for you. To loose a child is truly the most horrible pain imagineable. Yet, I want you to know your strength is ispiring to people like. Thank you!

Many Blessings to you

Reply: I'm so sorry about your nephew. You're right, Christmas is a very difficult time of year for those who have lost loved ones. The other night we watched a video of Kait's last Christmas, and everythiing was so happy and normal. Theere I am, wearing a Santa hat, unwrapping the last gift she would ever give me, with Kait, eagerly watching my face to see my reaction. It was three little wooden elephant heads, with their trunks thrust out, to hold dish cloths or pot holders. We couldn't possibly have guessed that, seven months later, she would be gone. Those elephant heads are on the wall in my kitchen right now. They're almost as old now as Kait was when she died.

suspect charged in est side teen killings
Question: Did you hear that a suspect was finally charged with murder in the East Mountain killings of three teens? I believe that it was posted on your real crimes site. Two people close to the murderer finally came forward after all these years.
I hope this proves that it is never too late to solve your daughter's
murder even after all these years. Someone must come forward....somehow...sometime!!!

God Bless,

Asked on Thursday, December 07, 2006 at 10:19:28 AM
Reply: Yes, I have been keeping up with that heartbreaking case, via Albq. newspapers on-line. I know and like Joan Shirley, Kevin's mother, and she and the mothers of the other two murdered boys have stood strong and true, supporting each other, throughout this terrible ordeal.

They were fortunate, (if anyone with a murdered child can be considered "fortunate"), in having honest and dedicated detectives from the sheriff's department working that case.

I hope they've found the true killer and that the evidence will hold up in court.

Reply: My name at birth was Lois Duncan Steinmetz.

My mother's name was Lois Duncan Foley Steinmetz.

When I started selling stories to magazines, at age 13, and used the name "Lois Steinmetz," everybody thought the stories were written by my mother, who also wrote for magazines.

So, I started using my middle name "Duncan," as my professional name. "Duncan" was my grandmother's maiden name, and a name that has gone down through our family for generations.

By the time I married Don Arquette, I had written so many books as "Lois Duncan" that changing that name would have meant starting my career all over again as a different person. So, I have retained the name "Lois Duncan" professionally. In personal life I am "Lois Arquette."

sealed federal indictments
Question: There are rumored to be 13 sealed federal indictments relating to the kickbacks in the building of the new district and metropolitan courthouses. Manny Aragon and John Brennan are rumored to be among the as yet to be revealed defendants. There is a sitting district court judge who is rumored to be supplying the information in exchange for immunity for himself. He strongly resembles the drawing by the psychic that was accidentally included in your book. I'm not sure how your daughter would have recognized him, because I believe in 1989 he was not yet a judge, but he was an attorney and could have been on the news or somehow in the public eye during that time. I don't want to post his name because of libel and slander issues, but I am sure your private investigator could figure out who this person is by this information.
