Who Killed My Daughter? relates the facts and conjecture about the still unsolved case. Duncan's second book about her daughter's murder, ONE TO THE WOLVES: ON THE TRAIL OF A KILLER, picks up where the first book leaves off and contains all the new information Kait's family has uncovered from private investigation.

The story of a mother's search for the truth behind her daughter's brutal death shows how one woman uncovered information that an entire police force could not and proved that the death was anything but random. National ad/promo. Tour.

All too familiar, all too sad: the police ignore leads, maybe due to intimidation from the local mafia, and a murder case goes cold. Sounds like Lois Duncan, her husband and family members went out on a limb to investigate leads, doing the work of the police. Why do I believe her version of this scenario? Because it happened to my own family. Julie Benning, Iowa Cold Case # 7600382. Forty years later, citizens and family members are still asking questions and chasing down leads, while the police, the BCI and even the FBI have uncovered nothing.

Lois Duncan captures the vast range of emotions that go with the loss of a child, a parent imagining what might have done to prevent it, the gaping hole of "not knowing." It's one thing to lose a loved one to natural causes or natural disasters, but it's a whole new ballgame when some unidentified person (walking free) has stolen a person's life, for reasons we have to dig, dig, dig to discern or guess at, even knowing there is no good reason, NOBODY deserves to be executed the way so many teenage girls have been, all too often because they "know something" (usually about drug traffickers). The police are either complicit (getting a cut of the profits) are terrified (threats against their own loved ones if they arrest anyone). If I sound like a conspiracy theorist, check out Netflix's addition of the show "Narcos" about a real-life drug trafficker and his tatics.

Some reviewers condemn this book for the interviews with psychics. Interesting, Greta Alexander was asked to work on my sister's case in 1976. Three officials visited her, and one of the police officers was "hostile," which interfered with her ability to work on the case. She also may have been fed misinformation about the case (a certain police officer was known for this, and I'm still trying to learn if he was the one who set Greta on edge). Both Greta and Betty Muensch (the one most quoted in Duncan's book) have since died.

I don't put stock in psychics, mediums, hopes of reincarnation or an afterlife, but I would love, love, love to find out that telepathy, ESP, and survival of the spirit do in fact occur. My sister hasn't given me any signs of being "out there" and aware of us, but I like to think it's because the minute she shook off the ol' mortal coil, she was bounding off to rock in the clouds with Jim Croce, Jimi Hendrix, Freddy Mercury, and a pantheon of rock stars she loved. If this life is a transition to some next life, Julie moved on, and fast, and I don't blame her.

But if she could come back and answer a few questions, the way Duncan's daughter evidently did, that'd be great (hello, Julie?).

I cannot dispute or discredit any of the psychic phenomena Duncan experienced or described here. Some of Betty Muensch's commentaries were long-winded and vague, and I skipped over a lot of those passages. "There will be this" and "there will be a that," and all this odd sounding stuff, went over my head, but I read Duncan's intrerpretations.

One thing I know: authors do indeed seem to have a flair for prophecy. I know a woman who wrote a novel, then met one of her fictional characters in real life, and the similarities were so great, she wrote him right out of the novel rather than risk being sued for libel.

In 1985, I outlined a novel and started writing it in 1990. Five years later, I had a son, daughter, daughter, and their personalities match up with the son, daughter, daughter in my novel. I'm *almost* afraid to write anything dark, for fear that it will come to pass.

In all, this is a heartfelt, honest, gut-wrenching story of a family who have lost a loved one and gotten far too little cooperation or help from the police in getting the killer(s) off the streets. How many others die because some naive young girl's life doesn't matter enough to justify the expense of getting the police to pound the pavement, make arrests and get killers behind bars?

Very well written. Compelling and heartbreaking. I live in ABQ and lived here when Kaitlyn was killed. It was a headline story when the murder happened, but it soon faded from the front page. As with most people, I forgot about the event and didn't give it another thought until I read of Lois Duncan's death. Ms. Duncan writes with raw emotion, and the frustration during her search for her daughter's killer is evident. I have also purchased "One to the Wolves", Ms. Duncan's follow-up book, but I will wait a bit before reading it. RIP Lois Duncan.

Very interesting and tragic story of a daughter who is killed and the murderer doesn't ever go to trial. Impressive attempts on her family's part, running down all leads, seeing psychics (who are incredibly helpful) and then coming to the conclusions justice has only been served in the effots of the family. Also, gentle treatment by detectives who IMHO could have done better. Lois Duncan is a fiercly loving mother, and I hope the rest of her life has been good to her. She deserves it.

My heart goes out to the author/Mother. She does everything in her power to cooperate with the police only to get treated as a nut case. I found the psychic leads to be the most frustrating of all, as they appeared to be quite helpful yet the police wanted nothing to do with them, and would not even investigate the leads at all. This mother left no rock unturned. I admire her strength and determination. It kills me that those responsible for her daughters death were never brought to trial.

Extraordinary book and well worth the time to read.

When Lois Duncan got the call that her youngest daughter was in the emergency room, murder was the last thing on her mind. As time passed, she learned more than she could have imagined about Kaitlyn, her boyfriend, and organized crime.
There are more questions than answers in this book, but don't let that stop you. It's an excellent true crime story and memoir.

Wow I feel really bad for how little regard the police had for the family and their loss. Plus no concern for the safety of the family. They had to be covering up for someone. Did they realize how transparent this was to the family. So sad. I was very engrossed in the story. Sad to know that Lois passed with never having anyone pay for the loss.
I bought "Who Killed My Daughter?" because, as a Middle School English teacher, I was aware of the author's novels, which my students had read eagerly. It was only after the book arrived, and I started to read it, that I appreciated the role of psychics in this narrative. Lois Duncan has bravely presented the frustrations and limitations of the criminal justice system, especially in places where there is gang activity and a major drug trade. The police choose their battles, or are actually criminal themselves -- for whatever reason, an individual crime, such as Kaitlin's murder, becomes a low priority.

As soon as I finished the book, I went on-line and was sad to learn that there has not been a resolution for this family. Lois and Don have done incredible work in putting forward the issues, and pointing out the reasonable explanations for what has happened. As they have done so, they have also -- I am sure -- inspired and comforted many other families.

I found the psychics to be an interesting strand in this book, although I agree that some of the actual transcripts are difficult to read. Still, it is in that difficulty that the truth lies, and so the actual documentation is essential.

I hope and pray that this crime will be solved, and that this family will find some peace.
