In this family portrait taken in July 1968, Priscilla Ford stands with her two sons and daughter,

in 1980. She was charged with murdering six people (another died later) and attempting to
murder at 23 others. It was at this point she stopped in front of the photographer and said
"Oh my, you're a pretty one. I'll remember who you are."
