Last weekend as I was having trouble falling asleep, I was channel surfing and stopped on MSNBC. At first, I thought it was just another 'who dun it' type show. I soon realized it wasn't. I was glued to the TV for two hours. Dear Zachary began as a family film to a son who's father was murdered by his mother before he was born. His father's best friend, Kurt, wanted Zachary to grow up knowing about his father, Andrew Bagby. Kurt traveled across the world to interview friends and family and to collect any pictures or home videos they had.
While the documentary was being filmed, they were still fighting to get Shirley extradited back to the US while she was out on bail. Shirley shot Andrew five times and left him for dead in a park, in case you were wondering how evil this woman was.
This was, by far, the most touching piece of film I have ever seen. I cried for an hour after I saw it. Even after watching it for the second time, I am still just as touched as I was last weekend. Kate and David, I don't know how in the hell they continue to live every day. My thoughts and prayers are with Andrew's family and friends.
Please visit Dear Zachary's website to send a letter to the Canada government. Did you see the documentary? What did you think?
