a letter to boggess from lisa hazelwood

She is the granddaughter of Lee Vance Hazelwood.  Boggess murdered himMy name is Lisa Hazelwood. I understand through conversations with Allan Austin that you have tried to contact me. I would be interested in what you wanted to say to me. And how you feel about killing my Pa Pa. Why did you choose to destroy my family? What were you thinking when I walked into the Gas station that day. If I had been alone would you have killed me too? I am haunted by you and what you have done almost every day of my life. Try to put into words what was going through your mind and what led up to you killing him. I need to try to understand why.
