is an American child murderer. He was a sixteen-year-old junior at
South Kingstown High School in the state of Rhode Island in 1975
when he murdered Jason Foreman, a five-year-old child who lived
nearby, in South Kingstown, Rhode Island.
He was not convicted of the murder until 1983,
when he confessed to the crime upon questioning about the
attempted strangulation of another child. He was a large boy and
preferred to spend most of his time alone. He lived with his
father Franklin Woodmansee, a police reservist, on Schaeffer
Street in the village of Peacedale.
Disappearance of Jason Foreman
In May 1975, on the day Jason disappeared, he
had been out playing with his older brother and three other boys.
After announcing to his playmates that he was going home he ran
toward the fire station located at the bottom of the hill. The
street he lived on was not more than 30 yards from there, however,
to make it to his house he would have to pass by the house where
Woodmansee lived. Jason's mother, Joice Foreman, last heard her
sons laughter through the open window, at approximately 3:30 in
the afternoon, he never made it home. It was her 25th birthday.
Arrest and conviction
Jason Foreman's murder went unsolved until
Woodmansee was apprehended in April 1982 for a different crime. He
had lured a 14-year-old paperboy (surname Sherman) into his house,
and plied him with alcohol. After an unsuccessful attempt to
strangle him, the boy made it home and told his father of the
incident who became enraged, confronted Woodmansee, and then
punched him. Woodmansee's father saw the police leaving from the
Sherman home, waved the officer over, and complained to the police
about the attack upon his son.
The officer requested that they both come down
to the police station to talk about the incident. During the
interrogation with Woodmansee regarding the alleged attack upon
the Sherman boy, the officers had a hunch that he might know
something about the disappearance of Jason Foreman. Slowly they
steered the interrogation that way and ultimately Woodmansee
confessed to killing Jason Foreman. He told the police that when
they searched his room they would find a journal but that
everything in the journal was purely fiction.
When police searched Woodmansee's room, they
not only found the journal but also found Foreman's skull and
several other bones on his dresser. The bones had been picked
clean of all flesh and shellacked. Woodmansee pleaded guilty to
second degree murder in 1983, and was sentenced to 40 years in
prison as a result of a plea bargain. The prosecutor negotiated
the plea bargain to avoid the gruesome facts about the murder
being exposed during the trial.
Woodmansee was released from prison on
September 11, 2011, after having served 28 years of the 40 year
sentence. The "Good Time Law" in Rhode Island allows a prisoner to
earn as much as 10 days off his sentence, every month, for good
behavior. In the 28 years that Woodmansee was incarcerated he was
able to earn back 12 years under the provision. John Foreman,
Jason's father, stated that he intends to murder Woodmansee after
he is released.
cannibal ate my baby brother - and now he's going to be freed from
jail': Rhode Island woman's shocking story
By Jeff Maysh - DailyMail.co.uk
June 10, 2011
A woman whose baby brother was murdered and
allegedly eaten by a teenage cannibal has spoken of her family's
nightmare as the killer is set to be released from jail.
Raven Aubin, 47, was just ten years old when
her five-year-old brother Jason Foreman disappeared in 1975.
It would be eight years before her family
discovered the truth of what happened to him - a truth that tore
their family apart.
Now killer Michael Woodmansee is set to be
freed from jail 12 years early, possibly walking the streets of
Rhode Island before the end of the year, according to police.
The news has torn open the old wounds. Mrs
Aubin's father John has already threatened to take revenge
Woodmansee should they cross paths, telling a radio station in
March: 'I do intend to kill this man'.
Now Mrs Aubin, too, is reliving the horror.
'Michael dismembered my brother limb by limb,'
she told the MailOnline.
'Soon after, he was eating my brother’s flesh,
like the animal he was,' she claimed.
'No. He was worse than an animal. Animals kill
to eat, to suit a need. Michael killed for pure sport,' she
claimed. 'Michael killed just because he could.'
Woodmansee was just 16 years old when he
committed the horrendous child murder 36 years ago.
He pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of
second-degree murder on February 24, 1983, in a plea deal with
prosecutors to spare the Foreman family the horrific details of
He was jailed - but the early plea meant that
the charges of cannibalism were never proven in court.
Mrs Aubin, however, remains convinced.
'This deranged killer murdered my baby brother,
and as he watched him die, he scribbled notes in a journal,' she
said. 'It was a how-to book on murder.'
The disturbing journal has been legally sealed
and protected by the courts, because it reportedly contains
sickening details about how Woodmansee ate the boy’s flesh, and
shellacked his bones as souvenirs.
Mrs Aubin said the killer should remain in
prison for life, because of the nature of the crimes.
According to a local newspaper, Woodmansee was
a withdrawn 16-year-old boy on May 18, 1975, when he lured Jason
into his home.
He stabbed the little boy in the heart and
hiding his small body in a trunk.
It remained undiscovered for eight years as
authorities searched for the missing boy in a huge manhunt.
'The search went on for years,' said Mrs Aubin.
'It was insanity. It’s hard to explain what
this did to my family. We’d been torn apart.
'My father became and alcoholic and my mother
became depressed and they both suffered mood swings.'
But on April 15, 1982, a bearded Woodmansee
tried to strike again, luring a 14-year-old newspaper delivery boy
named Dale Sherman into his house.
After plying the boy with alcohol, Woodmansee
attempted garrote the boy, police said.
But Sherman fought back and police were called
- and suddenly, all the pieces of the puzzle fell into place.
When Woodmansee was interviewed by police he
admitted that he fantasized about murder: 'It would be easy [to
kill someone], easy to get away with it, and some form of fun,''
he said, according to a newspaper.
Shortly thereafter, he confessed to sexually
assaulting and killing Jason Foreman, police said - pleading
guilty to second degree murder before the case could go to trial
and the cannibal charges be proven.
But soon, details of the horrific murder began
to leak out.
'Atop Michael’s dresser was a box,' Mrs Aubin,
who was privy to much of the police information not released to
the public, claimed.
'Inside were my brother’s shellacked bones: his
arms, legs, a small jaw, a few spine and rib bones, and his skull.
The bones were washed and finished for display,' she claimed.
'Michael coveted them; he treated my brother’s
bones like trophies,' she alleged. 'Next to the box was the
According to Mrs Aubin, within hours of killing
Jason, Woodmansee had boiled his body parts to speed up the
process of removing the flesh from the bones.
'This lunatic ate my baby brother,' she said.
'Imagine a life trying to accept that as fact?
'To cannibalize someone for the sake of
wondering what it is like, that to me is more demented than the
thought of killing someone.
'To this day, I have nightmares about this. I
wake up screaming, and I know it’s not just a dream. It’s my real
But prosecutors agreed to a plea bargain to
spare the family more grim details of the boy's death and to avoid
a grisly trial, and the journal was sealed for ever.
Thirty years later, Woodmansee, now 52, is set
to be released from prison 12 years early due to good behaviour.
To Mrs Aubin, the thought is terrifying. 'How
can this man be let back out on the street? What if he thinks
about killing again?' she said.
'With Michael, thoughts are dangerous. He
doesn’t see the world in the same colours as normal people.
'Nobody wants him on the streets. And to be
honest, he won’t be safe on them.
'My family and the whole state of Rhode Island
are rallying to keep this maniac behind bars, but legally, there
is little we can do.'
To her father, however, the pain of his release
may be blinding.
‘I do intend, if this man is released anywhere
in my vicinity, or if I can find him after the fact, I do intend
to kill this man,’ he told WPRO-AM radio in March.
Superior Court Judge Susan E. McGuirl, the
former state prosecutor who agreed to the plea bargain, said that
news of Woodmansee's pending release was 'shocking'.
She told a local newspaper: 'Certainly there
would not have been any anticipation of him getting out in 28
The killer, who has served nearly all of his
sentence at prisons in Massachusetts for his own protection, faces
huge public anger if he returns to Rhode Island.
But police say they are preparing for that
‘We do not know what his plans are or if he is
[planning on coming back here], but it is definitely something we
plan on discussing,’ a spokesman for the South Kingstown Police
Department told AOL News in March.
Child Killer's Journal Could Keep Him
By Anne-Marie Dorning - ABCNews.go.com
March 16, 2011
Rhode Island prosecutors and prison officials
are using a convicted child killer's gruesome journals to make the
case that he should be involuntarily committed if he is granted
early release from prison this summer.
Michael Woodmansee, 52, was sentenced to 40
years in prison after he reached a plea deal in the murder of a
5-year-old boy. But because of a law that allows prisoners to have
time shaved off their sentence for good behavior, Woodmansee could
be released this summer, after serving just 28 years of his
The possible early release has caused outrage
in Rhode Island, and the young victim's father even said he would
kill Woodmansee if he is released in August.
On Monday, the South Kingstown Police
Department handed over Woodmansee's private journal pages to the
Rhode Island Department of Corrections as part of the effort to
keep Woodmansee from becoming a free man.
Two court-ordered psychiatrists will read the
journal, conduct face-to-face interviews and review Woodmansee's
voluminous prison records before making independent
recommendations to the Department of Corrections.
The journal contains descriptions relating to
the brutal murder of 5-year-old Jason Foreman that are so graphic,
the court ordered the journal sealed when Woodmansee was sentenced
"It is a booklet, several pages in length. It
is written in paragraph form," said South Kingstown Police Chief
Vincent Vespia, one of only a handful of people who have read it.
"I will not tell you what was in it, but I will tell you that it
was a horrible, horrible crime, among the most gruesome
investigations I have ever participated in and I've been around
the block a few times."
The victim's father, John Foreman, said the
police have told him that Woodmansee describes in the journal how
he had "stripped the bones" and "eaten my son's flesh."
In 1975, the 5-year-old boy was playing with
his sisters and brothers and a bunch of other neighborhood
children on a warm, sunny Sunday afternoon. Then he disappeared.
"We searched all night long," John Foreman
said. "The whole town was out searching, every day. But there
wasn't a clue, nothing. So much of it is blurred out of my mind."
It took seven years but, finally, in 1982 after
Woodmansee, a neighbor of the Foreman's, was arrested for another
crime, he confessed to the murder of Jason Foreman and in a plea
agreement was sentenced to 40 years in prison.
"You know it was a little bit of a relief at
least I knew where he was," foreman said. "But my wife and I, we
cried and cried, all those years our son was just across the
Vespia said there is "major concern" in South
Kingstown that Woodmansee might be released. Last weekend,
hundreds gathered to demonstrate against that possibility.
Like many states, Rhode Island has a law that
stipulates prisoners can "earn time" for following the
According to the Department of Corrections
chief A.T. Wall, Woodmansee was a very compliant prisoner who had
only one small infraction during his 28 years in prison. As a
result, he was able to shave a full 12 years off his sentence,
making him eligible for release on or before Aug. 12.
Legally there is little the DOC can do to
prevent Woodmansee's release, other than an involuntary
In order to make the determination,
psychiatrists must certify that the inmate would benefit from the
care and treatment of a mental health facility and that if left
unsupervised he could do serious harm to himself or others.
Wall said this kind of involuntary commitment
assessment has happened only one other time that he knows of in
the state. In that case, the psychiatrists did petition for the
inmate to be committed involuntarily, but before that could happen
the inmate chose to commit himself voluntarily.
Last week, Woodmansee was transferred to a
Department of Corrections facility in Cranston, R.I., where he is
housed in a special protective custody unit with other high-risk
He has a single cell and can interact with
other protective custody inmates. They eat together in a separate
dining room, and have access to the outdoors in a small courtyard.
Woodmansee has not made his wishes known as of
yet. Both of his parents are dead and he has no known relatives in
the South Kingstown area.
"I have no information that he wants to be
released and I have no information that in the unlikely event he
is released he would want to come back to this community," Vespia
said. "So this is all very premature."
But premature or not, the news of Woodmansee's
possible early release still hit John Foreman hard.
"I got real mad, I got angry. I got upset. I
got scared. All of these emotions were going through my head,"
said Foreman. "I didn't know there was such a thing called early
release. Parole, yes. But not early release."
Foreman, 61, got so angry that he told a radio
station he would kill Woodmansee when he got out of prison.
When asked if he regretted his remarks, Foreman
said, "That's not the right way to go, but I would probably do it
just the same. There are no words for him."
Wall said he is in the process of hiring the
psychiatrists who will review Woodmansee's case and he hopes to
have their decision by later this spring.
There is also legislation being drafted to
change the early release statute in Rhode Island so it would not
cover killers like Michael Woodmansee.
Woodmansee Talk Stirs Up
The possible release of South
Kingstown's most notorious criminal has sparked a public outcry
and wreaked havoc on the family of his victim.
Posted by Carl Critz - Nagarransett.patch.com
March 10, 2011
When convicted murderer Michael Woodmansee was
quietly sent down from Massachussetts to Cranston to begin the
final phase of his incarceration last week, the news of his return
quickly sparked a whirlwind of emotional response that has
captivated the state. But to the family of his victim, the
outcries have stirred up emotions that had been long since buried.
“They say that time heals wounds, but never
completely. And it doesn’t take much to open up that wound,”
remarked Peter Schofield, Sr. on Monday afternoon, a day after the
Providence Journal reported that Michael Woodmansee, confessed
killer of his nephew Jason Foreman in 1975, was back in Rhode
Woodmansee was transferred from a prison in
Massachusetts to the Adult Correctional Institutes in Cranston
last week, and could be released as early as August due to good
behavior rules that shaved almost 12 years off his 40-year
The report has drawn furious reaction from the
victim’s family and from countless Rhode Islanders, who have
protested his release in virtually any way they can: From John
Foreman’s incendiary interview on WPRO Monday afternoon to a
Facebook group entitled “Protest the release of Convicted Child
Killer Michael Woodmansee,” which boasts more than 1,300 members
after its creation less than two days ago. An even larger,
similarly named Facebook event claims nearly 10,000 guests in
protest of Woodmansee's release. Within the walls of these pages
come raw emotion: frustration, rage and comments from citizens
with a desire to protect future children.
But the flurry of traffic, both online and off,
has come like a meteor strike to the family of Jason Foreman as
they struggle to deal with the upwelling of long-interred emotions
regarding the man they thought they would never have to face
again. The news has impacted the community itself, which had
placed their thoughts of the gruesome murder far away, guarded
like Woodmansee’s diary, which to this day remains sealed within
the South Kingstown Police Department, according to the Providence
Like the derelict house on Schaeffer Street,
the death of Jason Foreman has faded from the limelight with years
of neglect and the urge to forget. But it has not disappeared.
“This is a man who committed the most heinous
crime that has ever occurred in our area, and got away with it for
seven years until he tried to do it again,” said state Rep. Teresa
Tanzi in a release issued Tuesday. Her own daughter turns five
next month, and she lives just blocks from the Woodmansee home.
“Crimes against children are in a category by
themselves, and parents like myself look at what he did — and
tried to do again to another boy — and we are all asking ourselves
what can be done? I can assure you we are looking at every
possible angle to protect our community and others from Michael
Woodmansee ever being able to offend again. The crime this man
committed still haunts our community.”
While the news made headlines nationwide this
week, Jason Foreman's family has struggled into damage control
mode as they digest the reaction. Schofield stated he has
successfully argued several times to take the image of his nephew
Jason off the internet whenever possible over the past few days.
“It just infuriates you," Schofield said,
recalling witnessing Woodmansee in the Washington County
courtroom. "The man had no remorse ... he never said I’m sorry. He
just shut up and stood there. And that’s the sad thing.”
Schofield, former military man, was stationed
at Fort Dix in 1975 when he was called back home to help search
for Jason. “I received a phone call Monday morning, probably
Sunday morning around 7:30 or 8, my wife said the FBI was on the
property. I asked her why and she explained. In the meantime they
had searched my home, the attic and everywhere else. We lived on
High Street upstairs above Jason’s grandad.”
With permission, Schofield was transferred back
to South Kingstown and served out his two weeks under then
Detective Ronald Hawksley as they searched for Jason. “There were
high emotions among the family, to start with,” Schofield said.
“It’s a feeling that’s hard to describe when you have a total loss
of something. My wife and I used to babysit when John and Joice
had to do something. We were aunt and uncle but also close members
of the family and it’s been that way for years.”
When Woodmansee attacked Dale Sherman in 1982,
Schofield was on active duty again, this time attached to a Marine
Safety Office in Boston.
“My wife got a hold of me and she was in tears.
It was a very stressful time, a very saddened time. I keep
thinking about it constantly, and I have since that time. It's
something you don’t forget. It’s something that stays with you for
the rest of your life.”
While corrections officials are considering
trying to have Woodmansee, now 52, involuntarily committed to a
secure psychiatric facility if he is deemed mentally ill, Tanzi is
exploring legislative possibilities to help protect the public
from him, according to the release.
She said she has been in discussion with the
General Assembly’s legal staff, which will be working with the
Attorney General’s office and the Department of Corrections to
research existing legal strategies, as well as reviewing laws that
can be strengthened to protect the public from Woodmansee and
killers like him, especially if they are released back into
“Since we’ve heard the news, it’s been a
stressful time,” Schofield said of the past week. “We haven’t been
able to sleep. Trying to run damage control on people claiming to
say ‘I knew Jason in kindergarten.’ He never went to kindergarten.
People need to realize, you’re not in it for the glory … when we
had the funeral for Jason, half the town turned out. That’s great
support, but these people claiming to do all these things, it
doesn’t help, it just makes everything worse.”
Schofield gave credit to the South Kingstown
Police Department, everyone from the officers working under Chief
Clinton Salisbury in 1975 through those who worked under Chief
Vincent Vespia in 1982 when the case was broken open. Schofield
championed Hawksley, the individual who he said did the most and
who traveled all over the United States looking for Jason.
He added that the good behavior rules allowing
Woodmansee’s release don’t make sense. “I’m infuriated that they
come up with these good time days. Truthfully, how do I feel?
Would you let Hannibal Lecter out of Jail? Would you like to see
Charles Manson around again? Would you feel comfortable having
Jeffrey Dahmer, this type of sick individual on the loose again?
No, nobody would.”
Even if Woodmansee were to be released, the
outpouring of emotion in South Kingstown and elsewhere could make
life difficult for such an individual, perhaps even dangerous. The
South County Independent reported Monday that Police Chief Vincent
Vespia would be concerned for Woodmansee’s safety if he decided to
reside in South Kingstown again.
“I don’t know how he’s going to survive once he
gets out into the community,” Schofield said. “Technology has
evolved … it’s on everybody’s mind. I would think that some people
have compassion and would say he should go about and live.
“I just hope he’s smart enough to realize it. I
hope people don’t take me out of context here. I’ve tried to be a
fair person, but he’s created a lot of harm to my family and I
have a lot of ill feeling about him. Personally, I don’t know what
I’d do if I saw him.”
Woodmansee: 5 Facts About the Murderer and Alleged Cannibal
By Torie Bosch - Aolnews.com
Mar 8, 2011
It was an unspeakable crime: a 5-year-old boy
murdered, the perpetrator allegedly eating part of his victim.
Now, Michael Woodmansee, who pleaded guilty to
second-degree murder in 1983, may be getting out of prison,
according to AOL News.
John Foreman, the father of the victim, Jason
Foreman, is furious, telling a Rhode Island radio host, "I do
intend, if this man is released anywhere in my vicinity, or if I
can find [him], I do intend to kill this man."
Surge Desk rounds up what we know about
1. A high school student at the time of the
Woodmansee was a 16-year-old junior at Rhode
Island's South Kingstown High School when he killed Jason Foreman.
2. A loner
According to The Providence Journal, Woodmansee
was a loner and had been experiencing violent thoughts for some
time before he committed the crime. "Years later, he would tell
police and a psychiatrist that he had been thinking about 'what it
would be like' to kill someone. He thought it would be easy, easy
to get away with it, and some form of fun," the Journal's Tom
Mooney recently reported.
3. The son of a police reservist
Jason Foreman was killed in 1975, but his body
wasn't discovered until 1982. When the town of South Kingstown,
R.I., was searching for Jason, Woodmansee's father, a police
reservist, was told to search his own home for the missing boy.
But he did not uncover his son's crime.
4. Caught when he attempted another crime
In 1982, Woodmansee was accused of luring a
14-year-old paperboy into his home, plying him with alcohol and
attempting to strangle him. The teen escaped and reported the
crime. When police were questioning him about the incident with
the teen, they also asked about Jason Foreman, and Woodmansee
confessed his crime.
5. Kept a mysterious journal and souvenirs
When police searched Woodmansee's home, they
made a grisly discovery: Woodmansee kept Jason's skull and some
other bones on a dresser. They also found a journal, which
Woodmansee had warned them about. He claimed it was fiction, but
the journal allegedly contained information about the boy's
The journal was destroyed after Woodmansee was
sentenced, because the judge said it would be too upsetting for
Jason's family to read. But John Foreman has said that the journal
led him to believe that Woodmansee cannibalized his son.
Murderer and Accused Cannibal
to Be Freed in August
By David Lohr - Aolnews.com
March 7, 2011
A plea deal intended to spare a murdered
child's family the horrific details of his death has come back to
haunt residents of a historic town in Rhode Island. The killer, an
accused cannibal who was a teenager when the crime was committed
more than 30 years ago, will be free before the end of the year,
according to police.
"We do not know what his plans are or if he is
[planning on coming back here], but it is definitely something we
plan on discussing," a spokesman for the South Kingstown Police
Department told AOL News today.
While police have yet to formulate a plan for
the impending release of convicted murderer Michael Woodmansee,
the father of his victim, a 5-year-old boy named Jason Foreman, is
not mincing words.
"I do intend, if this man is released anywhere
in my vicinity, or if I can find [him], I do intend to kill this
man," John Foreman told Rhode Island's WPRO News talk radio today.
According to The Providence Journal, Woodmansee
was a withdrawn 16-year-old boy on May 18, 1975 –- the day he
lured Jason into his home, stabbed the boy in the heart and hid
the small body in a trunk.
Woodmansee lived up the street from the Foreman
home. The day he took Jason's life was the boy's mother's 25th
birthday -– a time of happiness that would forever after be
associated with pain and heartache.
Woodmansee later told police he had fantasized
that "it would be easy [to kill someone], easy to get away with
it, and some form of fun,'' according to the Journal.
For eight years, frustrated authorities
conducted a nationwide manhunt for Jason. Some feared he had been
kidnapped, but no one suspected the whole, horrific truth -- that
a disturbed killer had taken his life, removed his flesh and
shellacked his bones.
The pieces in the case began to come together
on April 15, 1982, when a bearded Woodmansee invited a 14-year-old
newspaper delivery boy named Dale Sherman into his house. After
supplying the boy with hard liquor and beer, Woodmansee attempted
to strangle the teen, police said. Sherman fought back and managed
to escape and run home, where his dad called police.
Taken to police headquarters, Woodmansee
initially denied any wrongdoing. Because the allegations involved
a boy, investigators decided to question him about Jason. Shortly
thereafter, he confessed to sexually assaulting and killing the
child, police said.
When authorities searched Woodmansee's home,
they found Jason's skull and other miscellaneous bones on top of
the man's dresser. They also discovered a journal in which he
detailed the young boy's gruesome death, police said.
On Feb. 24, 1983, Woodmansee pleaded guilty to
a reduced charge of second-degree murder and was sentenced to 40
years in prison. According to The Associated Press, prosecutors
agreed to the plea bargain to spare the family the horrific
details of the boy's death and to avoid a grisly trial.
After sentencing Woodmansee, Superior Court
Judge Thomas H. Needham ordered his journal and all other evidence
in the case sealed. Needham said the accounts within it were too
disturbing for Jason's family to see.
For decades, rumors have surfaced about the
journal. Speaking with WPRO today, John Foreman alleged that
Woodmansee was a cannibal and said the killer had eaten his son's
flesh off his bones.
The boy was finally buried in March 1983,
roughly two weeks after his killer pleaded guilty. Jason's mother,
Joice, who often spoke with the media about the case, died in
For more than 25 years, Woodmansee has remained
behind bars, all but forgotten by the general public. All that
changed last week, however, when the now 52-year-old convict was
transferred to a correctional institution in Cranston. The move is
part of a process to prepare Woodmansee for his August release
The killer, according to the Journal, has
benefited from a prison reward system that shaved roughly 12 years
off his 40-year prison sentence.
Superior Court Judge Susan E. McGuirl, the
former state prosecutor who agreed to the plea bargain, did not
immediately return calls for comment from AOL News today. Speaking
with the Journal, she said news of Woodmansee's pending release
"Certainly there would not have been any
anticipation of him getting out in 28 years," she told the
While Woodmansee's plans for the future remain
unclear, one thing that is clear is that he is won't get a warm
reception if he decides to return home.
"I have taken the position that he is not
welcomed in this community and that as a resident and the police
chief, I don't think it would be safe or prudent for him to be
here," South Kingstown Police Chief Vincent Vespia told The South
Jason's father cannot bear to think that his
killer could return to their town.
"I have been able to visit Jason and his
mother, Joice, at their gravesite with only love in my heart for
them. But now I'm afraid to visit, now that the terrible memories
are back to haunt me and my family," John Foreman told the
Journal. "There is no forgiveness in me, only revenge."
