Most of the town heard the series of shotgun blasts. Some did not learn until the next day what horror had been inflicted on all of them. Since then, many residents of Scotts Mills, Oregon have written of that day in 1995 and the effect that family annihilator David Whitson has had on this small Quaker community.
Chris Anderson has written Life & death at a distance.
Peggy Senger Parsons has written I Saw Heaven Answer Hell.
Update, June 2008: A Clews reader has learned his fate.
According to http://www.thestorypage.net/time.html, maintained by Margaret V. Doran, David Whitson hanged himself in his cell in the Oregon State Penitentiary in June of 1996 while he was serving a life sentence.
