Description

On December 30, 1994, 22-year-old John Salvi killed two people and wounded several others during attacks on three abortion clinics in Massachusetts and Virginia. He was convicted and sentenced to two consecutive life sentences. In November, 1996, he committed suicide in his cell. A year later, questions are being raised about why his parents - and the state - didn't recognize his mental illness when they saw it.
