A victim's family speaks

“We just couldn’t seem to reason with him, and we could not get any help, no matter where we turned — from counsellors, to friends, to police, to lawyers — there was nothing anybody could do.”

Exclusively in The Telegram, the parents of Juliane Hibbs — killed Oct. 15 with her fiancé Vince Dillon by former boyfriend Brian Dawe — speak publicly for the first time about the tragic events that led up to the murder, and how the system failed their daughter and lets victims slip through the cracks.

When I hear or read articles like this it just breaks my heart and brings back alot of bad memories.Part of my life I rarely talk about but I know the fear that someone can instill in a person,I have been there I have felt it,and unless you go through something like that you have no idea what Julianne was dealing with,The fear is unbelieveable and to constantly told everyday you are worthless,I will kill you and no one know.You are living in constant fear and looking over your choulder every minute of everyday.....It is really sad that the police did notdo more,maybe if they have intervened earlier maybe it would have been a different outcome.You do not know..Anyways hopefully now Juliane can find the peace that she could not find down here on earth.... R.I.P. Juliane he will not hurt you anymore...
