OUR PRECIOUS CRYSTAL:
Comment by Jackie Hoflin on 25th January 2012
Justice has been finally served. Our families the Hogg's and the Hoflin's after 23 years can have closure. It's to bad that her parents are gone they can not revel in this day with us. After Crystal was murdered onthe night of 11/11/89, he recieved a slap on the wrist for his deed. But now 23 years later we all can be be assured that he will never, be able to hurt someone elses child.Crystal darling rest in peace, your sister and brother aunts,uncles, and cousins will always cherish your memory.You can go now with god on your angel wings you are free at last.

It took 23 yrs Crystal, but now you can finally rest in peace, and how dare our justice system let that monster hurt other girls after he took your life. Sickening.

lets not forget about chrystal hogg, who I found at the airport about 20 years ago choked dead by dan bruneau. I find it insane that he was being hid so close to the family of chrystal. Its not justice, Its just us.
