Friends, I am pleased to announce that a fellow advocate, Derek Logue of Once Fallen, is working on a groundbreaking project: a professional, in-depth documentary about the life and death of Gary Blanton, with the help of Gary's widow, Leslie.
You likely remember Gary's brutal murder (along with another registrant, Jerry Ray) back in June - leaving behind his widow, Leslie, and two little boys. Patrick Drum, the murderer, has since plead guilty and was recently sentenced to life without parole. But Leslie and her children are still here, picking up the pieces and trying to move forward.
Derek is a full-time advocate and has put everything he has into producing this documentary. To help with the remaining costs, he's organized a raffle on his website: http://once-fallen.blogspot.com/2012/09/once-fallen-fundraising-drive-raffle-to.html.
Please help Derek tell a story that our country desperately needs to hear! For a brief preview of what you can expect, watch the following clip of "Gary Blanton Jr.: Beyond the Label."
