Time to Put My Thoughts Together: Who Killed Nikki LaDue January?
OK. I think I’ve seen and heard enough. Now I need to go back to the beginning and sort through everything and gather my thoughts. Then I will post my final Nikki LaDue January post. If anyone out there has some additional information you think I should know, now’s the time. I hope to finish writing Nikki’s story this weekend. Until then, remember Nikki for who she was. Until then, here again are some thoughts from Nikki’s good friend Jennifer Hecker Guenter.
I remember right where I was and I remember dropping to the floor in disbelief. Suicide? NEVER and NO WAY!! Not Nikki, not ever, I don’t care how bad it got she was raised in the church and she loved life and she loved her baby and she would NEVER break her parent’s heart like that. I remember finding my way to my dining room table with the phone. I needed to call my best friend from high school that was even closer to Nikki than me because they played piano together. When Susan answered the phone and through choking tears and sobs I told her that Nikki was dead. I heard a gasp, silence and then together we cried. In fact, tears are streaming down my face now. Things like this don’t happen to us small town girls. We are all good girls. We all did what we were told. We all had our goals and our dreams and we all achieved them. Nikki was no different. Nikki was murdered.
