Twenty five plus years after Brenda Sue Schaefer’s death at the hands of Mel Ignagtow, the public scrutiny and painful memories linger, along with the incredulity of how this miscarriage of justice occurred in the first place.

This is not just me talking, but is apparent as dozens of citizens have attended the Jefferson County Public Law Library’s Public Forum series featuring attorneys and items/issues of public interest.

However, I have already discussed the law library series arising from the murder of Brenda Sue Schaefer in 1988, followed by the jury’s acquittal of her murderer Mel Ignatow, and then followed by Ignatow’s conviction for perjury.  Ignatow died after his release from prison when he fell on a coffee table at his home and bled to death, alone.
