Chapter 20 – Elizabeth Lafantaisie. “Mamere. Laugh Too Loud, Hug Too Hard.”

After Five years waiting for justice, the family and friends of Elizabeth Lafantaisie hear about the torture and brutal treatment of their beloved “memere”  before her death – and it’s intolerable pain all over again.  Autopsy photos and reports presented as evidence with grizzly details      that one can not shake off easily are presented. Nothing good can come of a case like this, yet Elizabeth Lafantaisie leaves behind her a large family and generations that remember fondly their “mamere” and we must too.
