I am writing on behalf of the family of my beloved niece Samantha Koenig. I was going to write this letter a while back but two of your readers wrote what I felt:
1. The spawn of Satan (SOS) is dead; quit wasting ink.
2. Enough! Feb. 1 is the anniversary that Sam was stolen from us. Why must you continue to write about this horrendous, deviant SOS, selfish, narcissistic, pathological liar. As a society we have became immune to such horror as for blatant insinuations as “It takes a long time to strangle someone” and other grotesque statements. Needless pain for Sam’s family. The whole truth will be never known, as his “suicide circumstances” will never be revealed.
