"I am the second cousin to the perpetrator and my sister is the one that he had on the boat and beat. He beat her so bad that she was afraid for her own life and the lives of her family. That is why she did not come forward.
"He sat at our dinner table and threaten all of us and said that we were all going to hell. He did shoot a hole in my Mother's house. We thought he was a nut case, but never knew the true gravity of the situation.
"One time I tried to rescue my sister from him but she whispered to me that he would kill me. She was only 19 or 20 years old at the time. Because of this incident and the fact that he got her hooked on drugs, she is dependent on society to this day due to the mental and physical abuse he put her through.
"Please don't ever judge someone until you are in the same situation. May the Powers that be bring peace to all of the victims and their families."
