You definitely affects your life. You almost need to have something that is driving you to continue to do it and I firmly believe that this is where I'm supposed to be meeker wanted me here and it in a long time to realize that. Is there a reason why I couldn't have kids. I think it's because I meant to do this. And there is definitely nothing that has been more satisfying in my life than to be at least be able to tell them other. I can't bring your daughter back but the person who did it isn't going to be able to hurt somebody else in late. Two thousand seventeen a year. After Gordon's trial doctors found a troubling uterine green mass inside Detective Jealous Trap and she had a hysterectomy she told me. There's a finality to that. The dream is gone she. He decided to throw away things. She'd been collecting her whole life with the idea that she would one day share them with her kids in her garage they were two enormous bins with old school report. Report cards notes essays book reports track shoes and trophies. She kept enough to fit inside a banker's box among among the belongings she found a grade school report in which she promised herself that she would one day. Climb Mount Kilimanjaro. Her husband was game and so a woman who had been camping exactly once announced a co workers that she was going to climb Africa's tallest peak and some people forgot who she was has made the mistake of wagering against her. Okay go little difference between reporters and guides and other climbers there were about forty people in her group and she was the only woman six seven ten fourteen hour days of climbing climbing every day. She watched the helicopters crossover head to rescue the weekend the unlucky and she wondered. Will that be me tomorrow. Her lungs were scorched and one of her toenails fell off on the six day. They stood on the summit in a place. The Messiah call the House of God God on a recent day. She went to the Black Palm Tattoo shop and orange and had the artist. Inc Mount Kilimanjaro on her upper ribcage. The tattooed tattooed joined eleven others scattered around her body most of them hidden under her clothes.

She hopes to meet when she dies but most of the tattoos. She refuses to talk about not to her friends. Not Not to her husband and certainly not to reporters. She won't discuss the mirrored white staffs on her left wrist or the series of mysterious numbers on her upper right arm arm which looked like latitude and longitude marks and are fascinated about all these crazy tattoos that I have none of them make sense now but they are throwing a story. They're all scar. Are there a scar. There is one circumstance in which she might actually tell those stories. You can get a confession. Would Utah Story Right.

Twenty fourteen where her face should have been among the photos of the other victims. There was this justice silhouette. Nobody even knew she was dead.

Her people always ask and why have pictures of my victims up on wall and it's it's a reminder when I when I come in for work it's they're the first the people I see before I sit down to my cubicle and when I leave there the last ones I see and so it's hard to ignore of a black silhouette staring at you and it's a conserve reminder of your job's not done and so I knew that at that point I it was it was just me.
