True crime author, Dennis Griffin, and his right arm and inspiration, wife Faith, are the guests for the hour on Shattered Lives.
In 1986 their lives were shattered when their vibrant daughter, Kim, was suddenly killed in a car accident. A bright 18 year old, Kim had just graduated from high school in June and was scheduled to enter college in September. On August 5 she went swimming with three other friends at a popular spot about 40 miles from home. On the way home from a day in the sun and fun, the accident happened as they neared the top of a hill. An elderly driver was coming in the opposite direction at a high rate of speed, panicked, and his car slammed into the car that Kim and her friends were riding in, knocking it over an embankment. The driver died at the scene as well as Kim.
