The Murder Trial of Christopher Vaughn Has Been Overshadowed by Other Stories
Unlike the Peterson case, there’s nothing sensational about Vaughn’s case — it’s just horrific. Vaughn is accused of killing his whole family; the defendant claims it was his depressed wife who killed the children and then herself. It’s hard to face a story like this, to sit through updates about a man who allegedly blew money on strippers and planned to escape to the Canadian wilderness once he murdered his family — it’s too real. If we don’t look closely at it, maybe we can pretend something this horrible just didn’t happen.
Chicago Tribune doesn’t have much about it either.
