In a wide-ranging interview with The (Jackson, Miss.) Clarion-Ledger, Ann Pace reflects on the life and death of her daughter Charlotte Murray Pace, who was killed 14 years ago in Baton Rouge by now-deceased serial killer Derrick Todd Lee.
The story, by writer Billy Watkins, was posted Sunday at the newspaper’s website.
In the interview, Ann Pace, who lives in Jackson, tells about raising a sassy but humble and studious Murray, the unbearable horrors surrounding her murder, and why family members are spreading Murray’s ashes in rivers around the world. She also describes how life seems “so different” since Lee’s death of heart disease on Jan. 21.
