I think it's so sad that the cape cod times had to put ex-con Barry Kane dies...He paid dearly for his mistakes...His children and grand children had to see that in the paper after over twenty years..shame on the them for the sensational journalism.

I thought the article was very low key, respectful and well written, even going out of their way to find someone to say something positive about him. This was an American tragedy of epic proportions and the movie and book excerpts online about the history of what happened are far more sensational. Imagine how painful it must have been for the children to read some of that. My heart goes out to them. I suppose they're in their forties and fifties now, but I remember them in their youth, frozen in time like a snapshot against the backdrop of a glorious Cape Cod summer.

May they find peace and closure now and be able to move on with their lives, wherever they are.

Did this fellow do OK after prison? How long did he serve?

I was a boyhood chum of Barry's and it really pains me to see how his life evolved. A brilliant guy but brilliance does not equate to common sense. I would love to ask him why.
