My mom was married to Ned Norman. My mom Holly Cloutier passed away last year. She always told me the stolen car was hers. She was put in the hospital by him by throwing her out of a car going 40 mph and beating her. He was supposed to be going to court for her abuse. He shot and killed the cop days before court. I was born in 79 and she married my dad after all of this.
