A friend in need: Falling on deaf ears

How could Trevor Burton forgive the son that killed his wife? How could he still love him?

The atrocity of the crime was no less in Trevor Burton's mind than it was in mine and yours.

But as Mark's father, Trevor had the benefit of 16 years with a healthy, loving son.

His friends and I had the memories of a "normal boy".

While the general public assumed Mark was "always a nutter", we knew there could only be one explanation for his fatal actions. Mark had changed. He was sick.
