Finally.....after 22 years....Officer MacPhail can rest easy and walk his beat in Heaven knowing this chapter has been closed.

Justice has been served. Because it seems that killers get all the attention in the media, please don't lose sight that you are not alone today. God Bless Officer MacPhail's family, and all other officers' familes that go to work on a daily basis never knowing for sure if they will get to come back home. Waiting 21 years to watch someone go to sleep after living through a family member's homicide.....still doesn't seem enough....may God comfort you and let you go forward from here.
