Rafferty's mom and lawyer have their say
Quote:
The mother boiled down the years of raising Michael Rafferty into a few short but firm statements about her son.
"He's not guilty and it hurts like hell. It hurts," Deborah Murphy said outside court Monday.
" . . . My son's innocent. And this could happen to any man that's walking around right now. Terri-Lynne McClintic has wrecked our lives and I just hope that justice is served and that he's freed."

Rafferty was driving force in Stafford killing, trial hears

Quote:
It is irrelevant who actually wielded the hammer that killed eight-year-old Victoria (Tori) Stafford three years ago, the murder trial of Michael Rafferty was told Tuesday.
“Michael Rafferty and Terri-Lynne McClintic were in this together, together they did this to Tori Stafford, and together they are guilty,” Crown attorney Kevin Gowdey told the jury in his closing address.

Christie Blatchford: McClintic, Rafferty were a ‘terrible team, a murderous duo,’ jury at Stafford trial hears

Quote:
Behind him, hidden under a coat and lying on the floor of the vehicle, as it turns out uncomfortably upon some of Mr. Rafferty’s empty water bottles — he drinks water compulsively and is surely the best-hydrated accused killer in Canada — was the little girl.
“We sat in silence,” Mr. Gowdey remembered.
“Tori Stafford sat in that car for those eight-and-a-half minutes,” he said, the inference clear how much longer they must have seemed to her.

DiManno: Judge put justice at risk in Tori Stafford trial

In the Rafferty trial, Heeney left out, forced out, a slew of evidence that became public knowledge only after the jury retired to deliberate, rulings of admissibility made largely in pre-trial arguments but also after proceedings got underway in the London courthouse, with the jury sent out of the room. Crucially, jurors never learned of material retrieved from Rafferty’s laptop computer showing that he’d done Google searches on such topics as “underage rape,” that he had an unhealthy interest in child pornography and bestiality, that he’d trolled necrophilia websites, that he’d downloaded movies about child kidnapping and child sex killing as recently as 12 days before Tori’s abduction.

Incredible article. Must Read.

Why Tori will always matter
By RANDY RICHMOND, The London Free Press

Quote:
A few nights ago, almost in tears, my wife said to me:
"So this is it? Once the trial is over we're all supposed to just forget about Tori? When it's all over, she's really gone and no one remembers her again?"
The first answer I gave to my wife is one I believe to be true.
"I think people will remember her."
The second thing I said is something I know to be true.
"I'm going to miss her."

Their anguish palpable

By RANDY RICHMOND, The London Free Press
Quote:

Nine of the jurors who convicted Rafferty of murder, as well as several police officers, attended court to listen to the victim impact statements from eight of Tori's family.
The officers included OPP Det. Staff Sgt. Jim Smyth, who vowed during a tense police interrogation of Rafferty May 20, 2009 to watch when Rafferty was sent from court to a life in prison.

what life will be like for Rafferty in Kingston Pen:

"In 2005, a Star reporter walked through the sliding steel gate that guards the home of Paul Bernardo and other notorious Canadian killers. Read the story from inside Kingston Penitentiary, which was originally published by the Toronto Star on June 21, 2005."

Michael Rafferty is joining fellow murderers ex-colonel Russell Williams and Paul Bernardo in a Quebec prison.

The man who kidnapped, raped and killed eight-year-old Victoria “Tori” Stafford was recently moved from maximum-security Kingston Penitentiary to the maximum-security Port-Cartier Institution about 800 km northeast of Montreal, relatives of the girl said.

“I don’t care where he is, as long he’s behind bars and not receiving any privileges,” Tori’s mother, Tara McDonald, said Friday.

Williams and Bernardo were moved from Kingston to Port-Cartier in the winter, sources told QMI Agency in February.
