She died when she was 21 and I was 25 so her life was cut short and that was a really tough thing for me personally to go through, to lose my sister. But it was really devastating for my family. My family pretty much fell apart after that.

He had an abusive relationship with her when she was alive, which of course she kept from us. We didn’t really understand the hold he had on her, and the fact that he was threatening her and was really using her to get what he needed and wanted. He was 20 years older than she was; we didn’t know that. He had a wife and two children; we didn’t know that. 

The reality is that this is really unfinished. It’s unfinished in the sense that I’m talking about it and he’s out there somewhere. Maybe he’s dead, and if he is, I would love to know that, I would love to know more of the detail. And if he isn’t dead, if he’s alive, he needs to pay for what he did. He murdered another human being.

It’s not really easy for me to be talking about this, but it is the truth, it’s my truth, and I hope that whoever might know something about Peter’s whereabouts that they would come forward and speak their truth because it’s the right thing to do.
