I was driving to work today and the news came on...I heard the name Betty Whitten being charged for murder on 2 counts. I knew the name but wasn't sure at that point if it was the Betty Whitten I knew from Libertyville, Illinois...Then her disabled daughter was mentioned, we called her "Kiki". "Kiki" had been stabbed by her mother Betty Whitten. Betty then put her dead daughter in her car and drove to St. Charles, Illinois. Betty saw a cop, and panicked. She then tried to crash her car, which she succeeded. "Kiki" was already dead, and Betty had a cut on her head. Betty is in jail on $2,000,000 dollar bond, and is being charged for murder. If you go on line and google Chicago Tribune, etc, you can read the article(s).
I knew this family and I was so stunned. I am only assuming they were still Jehovahs Wittnesses, but if not, they once were. Betty's husband was an elder. I remember Betty Whitten coming up to me at a funeral we were at back in 1990. This kid had murdered his parents. Betty came up to me at the funeral, and said "Now, don't you go doing something like that".
