On the 45th anniversary of her daughter's death, Miriam Shehane shares the story of Quenette, and the effect her life had on crime victims in Alabama. VOCAL, Victims of Crime and Leniency  was born from the tragedy that the Shehane family endured and their willingness to allow Quenette's legacy to help those who came after them.
