Description

Eleven years ago, Jennifer and Jeanne Bishop lost their sister Nancy, their brother-in-law Richard, and an unborn niece or nephew. The family was murdered in their basement by a neighbor's son. The teen was sentenced to two consecutive life sentences and did not receive the death penalty because he not 18. And while he has never acknowledged any guilt for the lives he took, Jennifer and Jeanne have learned to forgive him. Chicago Tribune Magazine reports on the forgiveness of these two sisters, their fight against the death penalty and their strong involvement in the Murder Victims' Families for Reconciliation.
