Hopefully Steve will choose to go somewhere where he won't be so well known. It's the only chance he'd have to live normally.

Good series Independent, except for the end. Why are you trying to open an old wound at the expense of the victims' families? If they want to contact him, they'll know how.

Excellent series, Jenny and the Independent. To hear from Steven Anderson and his mother is to bring new insights and understandings into this still-pertinent story. And to hear how Steven and his prosecutor have changed their minds and their hearts over the years is the stuff of universal humanity -- it is impressive that you captured their candidness. This is not only a series about the past, but about what we can learn from the past and how it changes us.

Steve Jenkins is 48. The two men he murdered were 42 and 37. He's already had more life than either of his victims.

I'm reserving my concern for the victims' families who have to live every day with the knowledge that evil and destruction exist in this world, even in small town Minnesota.

I will never understand how a mother can stand by and watch her husband destroy her son.

Good article on the Jenkins murder anniversary! It would be nice to see an article on the death of 3 year old Brandon Bly which occurred in Marshall 20 + years ago. There was too many unanswered questions surrounding his death.

I wonder how the familys of the men killed would have changed and matured over these years if this hadn't hapened. Odds are there would have been grandchildren that never had the chance to meet and get to know their grandfather.
