“People here say that there is something strange, but only about Dawn. The other girls, they are normal, polite young women. They all look alike, like tiny replicas of their Ma. But Dawn, she looks nothing like them and she acts nothing like them.”
Carys Jones, Sunkissed

“Do you even realize what you have done?’ as Dawn spoke her voice cracked slightly. She wished she could cry and release herself from some of the sadness building up inside her. But her tears never came.”
Carys Jones, Sunkissed

“Can you please just state your name and age, for the recording?’

‘Brandy White. I’m twenty four.’

‘Thank you. So on April 6th of this year, you were charged with the murder of your husband, Brandon White.’

‘Yes, sir.’

‘Records state that you yourself made the distress call to 911 at approximately 11:23pm.’ Brandy nodded.

‘Can you please answer vocally for the recording?’

‘Oh, yes, I made the call.”
