Long Time
Question: I just wanted to say that although its been a long time since I originally read your book about the horrible crime of your daughters murder I still think about it often. In my opinion you give great courage to those of us who aren't quite certain what we want with our lives because despite all the hardship you have endured you continue to write and be a large inspiration to us. I happened upon your book one day while in High School (nearly 10 years ago)when I was supposed to be researching for my freshman history class. I picked it up, along with my research materials, and I have to be honest with you, only one item was finished by the end of that weekend and it wasn't my homework. I cried for your loss and for the injustice against your family in the police not completing the investigation and giving the honest and true answers I'm sure we all feel you deserve. No family should be left without the answers to the questions surrounding the murder of a loved one. You're a very brave woman and you give courage to us all.

Also, I'll be purchasing your book on Barnes & Noble's website shortly. Along with several of your other books. I hope the story of your daughter never goes out of print and stays up front in the minds of those who were involved but refuse to step forward.

Best wishes to you and your family, forever and always.

Question: I'm dying to read this book, but I can't find it in the supermarket or at my local bookstore. Is it still in print?

Asked on Saturday, August 12, 2006 at 02:11:05 PM
Reply: Yes, WHO KILLED MY DAUGHTER? is still in print in paperback. The easiest way to get a copy at a discount is to scroll down to the bottom of Kait's homepage and click on the link to, which is directly under the picture of the book jacket.

You won't find this book in many bookstores, because it was published in 1992. However, if you suggest to the manager of your local bookstore that they stock this book because "there is a demand for it," we would appreciate that. We desperately want this book to continue selling, not because of the revenue, (which is minimal), but because if it doesn't rack up enough sales, the publisher will take it out of print. And that would be devastating to us, as that book is all that is keeping Kait's case from becoming buried and forgotten.

For the few "book collectors" who would like to own an autographed copy of the out-of-print hard cover edition, you can go to my "Lois Duncan" web site, which was set up for teenage readers, and click on the appropriate link. When the hardcover edition went out of print, which happens when the paperback comes out, I purchased a batch of remainders. They're currently sitting in our attic, and my husband wants me to sell them off quickly to reduce the weight on the ceiling. He's afraid we'll be killed in our sleep when that load of books breaks through and tumbles down on the bed.

Kaitlyn Arquette
Question: Dear Kait's mom:

I picked up your book from a lending library based upon the fact that you were the author. Your book, A Gift of Magic, had been so touching to my 12-year-old self, that it was the one I kept for my own children to read. That was over 30 years ago. Who Murdered My Daughter? was particularly haunting to me as I lived in Albuquerque for two years at that time (my husband was also employed at the Labs), and your daughter was murdered on our anniversary. I could still picture all of the streets and sites that were described by Kait to the psychics, even before you later identified them.


Asked on Thursday, August 10, 2006 at 08:51:14 AM
Reply: Ironically, Kait was killed on the day FOLLOWING our anniversary. That means that, what should be a day of celebration for us, has become a day of bracing ourselves for the day ahead, which is Kait's "deathday."

Betty Muench
Question: Dear Mrs. Duncan I have three questions for you.

How is Betty Muench doing and is she still helping with the murder?

Do you know the whereabouts of Dung?

How much have you discovered of Kate`s secret life?

Asked on Wednesday, August 09, 2006 at 04:06:30 PM
Reply: Betty Muench still lives in Albuqueque. She is now semi-retired and does not do readings for many new clients. I can still ask her questions if I choose to, but I think she has probably given us all that she can.

I don't know where Dung is. I assume still in Albuquerque.

We learn more about Kait's life from every tipster who contacts us. But we don't post all of it here.

Three questions
Question: Mrs. Duncan –

I have 3 questions.

1. With it having been 17 years since Katilyn’s murder, is it not possible for a ‘cold case’ team made up of APD officers impartial enough to review the case with a view to bringing the murderers to justice? Especially since most of the original officers involved in the case are now retired.


2. I have heard of cold case teams being comprised from different law enforcement agencies of retired individuals working to solve murders that have been going on as long as Kaitlyn’s. Could this be a possibility?
3. I know your quest for answers in solving Kaitlyn’s murder has been a long and expensive one. Do you have any type of fund set up for donations those of us may wish to contribute to, to help with this? Or, if you feel it is more appropriate, a favorite charity where a donation in Kaitlyn’s honor could be made?

Thank you and I hope your family is able to achieve justice for Kaitlyn.

Asked on Wednesday, August 09, 2006 at 12:15:06 PM
Reply: Thank you for those good questions.

1. In 2003, the APD Cold Case Squad did reopen Kait's case, thanks to one particular detective who formed an interest in it. As soon as he began digging into things in an agressive manner, he was transferred to another department. Nobody else on the APD Cold Case Squad wanted to pursue the investigation, so it was stone-walled.

2. Also, in 2003, after reviewing copies of APD reports, forensic reports, scene photos, etc. a member of the Bernallilo County Cold Case Squad, (not to be confused with the APD Cold Case Squad), came up with the following interpretation of the crime scene, which you’ll find at the bottom of our “Crime Scene” link.
1) This was not a random drive-by shooting
2) The shooting occurred after Kaitlyn's vehicle had struck the utility pole
3) The accuracy of the shots suggests they were fired at a very close range, at a non-moving target.
4) Had the shooting taken place while victim's car was in motion, it would have veered to the right of the roadway due to the left-to-right camber of the pavement. Also, the victim's falling to the right would have turned the steering wheel in that direction if she was grasping the steering wheel at the time of shooting.
5) Damage to the left end of the rear bumper suggests the rear of her vehicle was struck and pushed to the right by a second vehicle which veered her car across the median and into the utility pole.
6) This shooting was intentional and Ms. Arquette was the specific target.

That information was given to the APD Cold Case Squad. They were not interested in considering it.

No, we don't have a fund set up for donations to cover expenses in Kait's case, but we've received a great deal of pro bono help from outside investigators, which has lightened the load for us. If people, out of the goodness of their hearts, would like to make donations in Kait's name, it would be appropriate to make then to NIA/NM, (National Investigations Agency of New Mexico) a non-profit agency that donates their time and talents to helping families of murder victims who have been failed by "The System" and can't afford private investigators. The address is: PO Box 27187, Albuquerque, NM 87125. Donations should be marked: To help subsidize pro bono investigations.

Reading The Book
Question: Mrs. Duncan I`ve just started on the book but I pray that God will be with you and your family. I also pray you will find out about her secret life and hopefully that will lead to finding her killer.

Sincerely,Anthony Pope

PS. What has happened to her bedroom? Is her waterbed still there?

Asked on Monday, August 07, 2006 at 04:18:42 PM
Reply: We left Albuqueque after WHO KILLED MY DAUGHTER? was published because of death threats to the rest of us. We sold the family home and disposed of most of the furniture, keeping only things with sentimental value. We gave Kait's aquarium and fish, which we had given her for Christmas that year, and which she absolutely loved, to an orphanage. I don't recall exactly what happened to the waterbed.

Truly Touched...
Question: Hi Louis. I read your book when I was in seventh or eight grade. It became one of my favorite books. As young as I was, I had no idea of how infested with corruption our world is. I am now almost 21 and there are two books that have stayed in my mind throughout those years: "Who Killed My Daughter" and Ayn Ryands classic, "The Fountainhead". Until I had read your book I really hadn't ever given much thought to psycic readers. Your book made me realize that it really is out there. Just recently I was having a conversation about the topic and I found myself using your story as a reference to support my argument. (Don't get me wrong, I do not trust all of the people out there with "the sense"...however I know it is out there.) I then found my curiousity get the best of me. I immediately went online to find your website and to find out what has happened with your case since your publication. I stayed online for hours trying to read up on everything I could find. I am very sorry to hear that it isn't over for you. And quite frankly I was very suprised to see you following up on all of the messages people send you on this site. For that reason I wanted you to know that your efforts are not just in vain. Fourteen years after your publication and you are still touching the hearts of everyone who reads your book. Your story will always stay in my heart and I will continue to pray that you find the answers you have worked so hard to find. Thank you for the gift you have given your readers through your stories. We haven't forgotten you.

All you have to do is ask for help for your daught
Question: I have read your story and it has got to me, but to me there are some unanswered question on the police and you. They call me the Hawk and I get what I do best, and yes they pay for there crime. I can tell you that your daughter was killed and it was a coverup by the law. I am well known in what I do best in my kind of job, but its not cheep to find a bad cop or all that were in on the crime. This I see that what you tell me in one way, but I see in another. I do have some questions, but only you can answer them.
To help you I have to know everything before and after her death, and one of the heardes part is to tall me everything. I know that you may think that I'm just another nut, but I understand, and I do feel for you both. You can write me to answer my questions, but please don't tell anyone about this.
I am the Hawk my E-mail is, and I will not answer to anyone except you, because I am The Hawk.

Reply: We appreciate your desire to help us, but there isn't much information we can give you that isn't already on this web site. We don't know what happened BEFORE Kait's death, because she was hiding things from us. If we knew what those things were, we would know who killed her (or arranged to have her killed).

If you have specific questions, please, post them on this message board and we will do our best to answer them.

have a question
Question: you tell me that she was shot in the head two times, but no sign of any going out or any thing inside her head. now there is only one way that can happen. they call me the Hawk and I see there is one way.

Asked on Tuesday, August 01, 2006 at 10:12:57 PM
Reply: According to police, the bullets that entered Kait's head must have been of such small caliber that they shattered into undetectable splinters. However, if you will look at the photo of the bullet hole in the door frame of her car, (I believe that may be in the "Crime Scene" section of this web site) you will see that the hole appears quite large. This suggests that two guns may have been used -- a large caliber gun that was fired at her car and caused her to swerve off the road and hit a post, and then a small caliber gun to kill her once her car was stationery.

Question: I work for a police agency and it's 100% true that they have the protect your own policy. If you aren't one of the good old boys though, they don't mind leaving you out to dry. It's amazing the things that go on behind the scenes at our agency and actually any other agency. I am so sorry for your loss. The big man in the sky will have the ultimate judgement of the parties involved. I'll keep your family in my prayers.

Asked on Sunday, July 30, 2006 at 04:15:38 PM
Reply: That supports what we have been told by many other cops. However, we keep praying that ONE honest cop (or former cop, since many of the original homicide detectives have retired now) at APD will contact us privately with the information we need. If so, we will never reveal that cop's identity.

Question: Hi Ms. Duncan
I am 17 years old and i have read almost all your books. I enjoy them very much. Now that summer is here, i decided to catch up on my reading. I wanted to continue reading books by you so I decided to read Who killed my daughter? I couldnt put it down. I was touched how you never gave up and kept on searching on who did it. I was shocked that the police hardly did anything on the case. After reading the book, I want online to search if you ever solved the case. I am surprise that it has not been solved. I really hope you will eventually catch the killers. Good luck on your search.

Reply: Thank you, Kathy, But, please, know, we are not the only ones who are going through the exhausting experience of trying to force our way through "The Blue Wall of Silence" in order to expose the truth. Visit the Real Crimes web site at to read about many others.

The term "Blue Code" applies to the (sometimes unspoken but always understood) agreement between police officers that their primary obligation is to "protect their own." Apparently, this is brainwashed into them at the Police Academy. That doesn't mean that they are not dedicated to catching bad guys, it just means that, if a cop becomes involved in a cover-up, or is involved in the crime itself, his "brothers" won't expose him. He's #1, the victim #2. The grieving family is probably #100. The family is a distraction and an irritation.

I've just read a book that anyone interested in this subject might want to order from It's WALKING WITH THE DEVIL -- THE POLICE CODE OF SILENCE by Michael W. Quinn, who for 23 years was a member of the Minneapolis Police Department and for a year and a half was part of the Police Corps Program. Quinn lays out the problems that good cops face in dealing with "The Code." I learned a lot from that book.

Kaitlyn Arquette
Question: Dearest Arquette Family, I went to our public library last night in hopes for a few good videos to watch while my teenage children were away. I don't know how but I was led astray and your book "Who Killed My Daughter" was the only item that left the library with me. I read your book in an 8 hour span. My heart goes out to you all. As soon as I finished reading I had to find your website to see if the murderers were ever caught. I cried to know there is still no closure. I believe in all the psychic resources you endured as well as all the experiences as a mother. Kaitlyn reminds me so much of my 17 1/2 yr old daughter. It's kind of scary. I will light a candle for Kaitlyn tonight and another for you, her family. You will be in my prayers. Don't ever give up.

Former DA Bob Schwartz
Question: He is another shadey character! I believe he could have been involved in the whole mess. I have had a couple of opportunities to encounter the man in public venues. He seems to appear very pompous and untouchable. I guess when you know the law, you can weasel your way out of anything, which is, I'm sure, what happened to former Chief Judge Brennan. Last I heard he was off in California somewhere getting "rehab" bull hooey. That's just another way of saying he's probably been snuck out of the country.

I hope someone with the guts that knows who killed Kait will come forth soon!!!! I pray for that!

Former Legislator
Question: Manny Aragon is being investigated right now by the FBI on another matter dealing with kickbacks on the construction of the Metropolitan Courthouse and Detention Center in Albuquerque. He's also being considered for termination at NM Highlands University. There is a group of students though, that are fighting for him to not be terminated.

Do you know if it is possible if they uncover something in their investigation about something that happened back in 1989 around the time Kait was murdered, that they would be able to use it on Kait's case, since her case has never been closed. At least I don't think it has been closed. Isn't still being considered a "Cold Case"?

The reason I'm asking all these questions about him is because you mentioned in one of your postings update that many prominent NM legislators, law makers, and even law enforcement people were being investigated because of what happened to Chief Judge John Brennan.

Asked on Tuesday, July 18, 2006 at 03:09:15 PM
Reply: That's interesting news about the FBI investigation. We knew about Manny Aragon's termination at the University, but not about this other.

If, n the course of investigating Mr. Aragon or anyone else, the FBI comes across information about Kait's murder, they could -- if they chose to -- give that information to APD. But they would not be obligated to do that. They would not be able to investigate that information themselves, because murder is not a federal crime, and they could not force APD to follow up on it if they didn't want to.

Sometimes police say Kait's case is open and sometimes they say it's closed. It depends on whom you're talking to. It's technically open, since no one has been convicted, but in the minds of the police they "solved it" when they arrested the Hispanics. They blame former DA Bob Schwartz for blowing the case by not taking the suspects to court.
