Example text

We couldn’t trust her alone for five minutes. What we ended up doing – and I know it sounds highly intrusive – was to remove every op­ portunity for deceit from Cassie’s personal life. We went through her backpack on a daily basis; we searched her bedroom repeatedly to make sure there was nothing amiss (we found new notes); we even installed a voice-activated recording device on our own telephone. Drastic as they were, we felt that in order to save Cassie from the path she insisted on going down, we had to take these measures.

Thoughts of suicide obsessed me for days, but I was too frightened to actu­ ally do it, so I “compromised” by scratching my hands and wrists with a sharp metal file until I bled. It only hurt for the first couple minutes, then I went numb. Afterwards, however, it stung very badly, which I thought I deserved anyway. I still have scars. on December 31 – New Year’s Eve – we met with Mona, her parents, an investigator, and a detective from the juvenile crimes division. On en­ tering the room where the meeting was to be held, we were shocked to discover that far from being shaken by the revelations of our daughters’ friendship, Mona’s parents were openly hostile toward us.

(At one point Chris walked in on the conversation, and Cassie screamed and cursed at him, too. ) One day some time after this I took Cassie over to West Bowles to be with the youth group, and she snuck off and went to this same friend’s home. She did this more than once, and when we found out about it, we got even tighter with her. We would call Dave and say, “We know you’re not a policing entity, but Cassie’s begun sneaking out.
