YOUR TURN: Victim Offender Dialog


This week’s "Your Turn" segment goes to Laurrie Perrilloux. Perrilloux reacted to our story about the meeting between Danette Aydell and the convicted killer who murdered her 13-year-old daughter. The meeting behind bars was arranged through the state’s Victim Offender Dialogue program. Perrilloux faces the same situation. In her words:

I applaud this lady. My son also died at the hands of another and right now I am not looking forward to seeing his killer in a courtroom, let alone in a face to face situation. I know that was extremely difficult for this mother. She had to look at this person knowing his face was the last face her child saw before he took her life. I think had he not been caught he would have killed again. As one mother to another that has had a child taken from them I hope one day I can be as brave as this lady. My heart goes out to her. 

That’s Laurrie Perrilloux’s turn. Now it’s your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, visit us on Facebook or send an email to
