As the impact statements began, Rowe instructed the media not to show the faces of the minors who spoke.

Parents of murdered children are the first to speak

The first victim impact statement was read by Nicole Beausoleil, mother of 17-year-old Madisyn Baldwin, who was shot and killed while crouching next to her locker.

Her mother recounted in heartbreaking detail how she learned that day in the manager’s office at Meijer that her daughter had been murdered, how she refused to believe the tragic news, how she had to wait to see her daughter, and the searing pain she felt. when he had to identify her the next day at the coroner’s office.
