Who Killed My Daughter? is the autobiographical account of Lois Duncan’s tragic loss of her daughter, Kaitlyn, and the subsequent journey to track her eighteen-year-old daughter’s killer. Kaitlyn Arquette left her parents’ house on July 16, 1989, and was shot later that night as she drove home, dying the next day. After what Duncan charges to be sloppy and inconsistent police work, the Albuquerque police determined Kaitlyn’s death to be a random shooting. Yet, Duncan’s book chronicles how details of her daughter’s secret life came to light through information provided by her friends, witnesses, and psychics. Duncan and her family ultimately became convinced that Kaitlyn’s death was a murder-forhire. Frustrated and dismayed by the police’s resistance to accept any theory other than their own, Duncan decided to personally hunt for her daughter’s killer and documented her journey through this novel.
