Forever a child in our memory, Lisa French would have turned ?? this weekend.
She's the 9-year-old girl from Fond du Lac who was sexually assaulted and murdered by Gerald Turner as she was trick-or-treating in 1973.
So much strife has followed because at that time Wisconsin had not yet figured out that someone who kills and rapes a child and stuffs her body in a trash bag should never walk free.
Lisa's mother, Maryann Gehring, contacted my newspaper last week.
"It makes my blood boil to see what these prisoners can do," she wrote.
And she included a copy of an angry letter she just mailed to Turner in Waupun, where he's back in prison.
