“On behalf of the Butterfield and Crane families, we express our deepest gratitude to the outpouring of support and love given to our families,” said Cameron Crane, Katherine’s brother.

It was while there three children ranging in age from four years old to six month old slept in their beds.

“Our families believe in the laws of mercy and justice and we are confident that justice will prevail, but we will focus on mercy,” said Crane.
