Safe Mode: On
A Victim Impact Statement



In July of 1991, my father was murdered. The man who was responsible for the murder was sentenced to life in prison with a chance of parole in 15 years. 15 years later in February of 2007, I had to go up to a parole board and present a victim impact statement to them. The following video is the statement I read with pictures and video of my childhood. This has been a piece I have always wanted to work on and I am proud of what I have created. Life is so important, make the best out of it, and tell the people you care about how much you love them.

In July of 1991, an Essex County grand jury charged the petitioner, Kevin Wood, with the murder of George Aulson and the commission of related crimes. The charges arose from an altercation that occurred between the two men late at night on July 7, 1991, in Peabody, Massachusetts. While Wood acknowledged stabbing Aulson, he insisted that Aulson had instigated the brawl and that the killing was an act of self-defense. Pertinently, the police had raided Aulson's home on the day before the stabbing, and Wood claimed that Aulson bore him ill will because he (Aulson) believed that Wood had informed the authorities that Aulson was cultivating marijuana on his property.

  • I'm so sorry for your loss. There's no doubt your father would be proud of you. I hope they keep the murderer in jail, preferably hooked up to Old Sparky.

  • 15 years just doesn't seem enough.I am sorry you lost your dad and in such a violent manner.I hope the person that done this knows how he has destroyed so many lives and i hope he feels so ashamed but i am guessing he probably wouldn't.

  • Moving video. Almost wish I hadn't read the case link however. Turns out the kid's dad was a pot dealer and their home got raided. Even told the police: "I'll get that son of a bitch that set me up." The next day his dad attacked the one he suspected of narcing on him and got stabbed. Hospital witnesses reported his mom screamed "George, you can't die. You have the best marihuana plants in Peabody." If this is correct, this kid needs to factor these circumstances into his lif More..

  • Two thoughts:

    Life is short and precious.
    Actions have consequences.

  • so really, its possible that if a certain plant was not illegal, no police would of raided the murders house and and he would not of resented the victim enough to of killed him for grassing him up. no pun intended. Its a tragic story.
