All these comments you guys write are false because none of you actually even know him. I'm not saying what he did can be justified at all, It was wrong what he did. I feel sorry for the victim but she should of had a hint of how he was after awhile of being with him. So all you people can say what ever you want to about him but you should think twice before saying something about someone you dont know. I dont think he really ever figured out to be in society, when you grow up in the system from 15 to 30 yrs old you dont learn a whole lot about how to interact with normal people. Well if you have anything to say about him why dont you ask to see if its true first.

however, i think he was romantically involved w/her or her daughter. he can not be trusted. i hope ct does what il failed to do and lock this guy up for the rest of his life.
Again if you dont know what happened or why he actually did it dont say anything. To clear it up he didnt kill her for the pos camaro.

I have asked him and I completely understand what you are saying. I love him with all my heart and he showed me a picture of you. So if you want to talk e-mail, I don't think public information is where this should be talked about. I can tell you he has been very good to me, but there is a whole lot more info than you know. All I wanted to know is what really happened, and I never got an response, from anyont.

This guy really deserves life in prison. He must be mentally ill. At 15 he stabbed someone 55 times. That's insane. I hope they don't ever let this menis to society loose.
Yes he is dangerous. It was my stepmom that he killed back in 1986, September 3 to be exact. And it was over 55 times to the back of the head and neck. She was defenseless. She also had stab wounds on her wrists and arms from trying to protect herself.

what really happened is that he stabbed my mom to death. she was on the ground and he stabbed her over 55 times in the back of the head and neck. you are crazy to be with such a dangerous person and if he hurt you like that, how can you be sure he won't kill you someday? he has the ability to kill so what makes you think you are safe?

I remember Paul, went to school with him in Rockford at Jefferson H.S. we were not friends, but I had him in Gym class. Paul was your typical Jock,
excelled in sports and was a bit self absorbed. He was a really good wrestler, when we did a semester of wrestling in gym class Paul was the only opponent to beat me without much struggle. I remeber paul threatening to kill me once over something stupid but but we all thought it was Paul's normal short temper, no humor attitude and never took him seriously.

I think it was 6 or 8 months later that he stabbed his girlfriend's mom because she did not
want her daughter dating Paul. We figured Paul's parents had money, and Paul got used to getting everything he wanted, so when someone said "No"
he couldn't handle that answer and snapped.

I remember in the news shortly after Paul was arrested for stabbing hi girlfriend's mom, that he said he was "really sorry" about what happened.

We knew something wasn't right upstairs with a comment like that, but he was clever enough to escape jail in a load of laundry (just like in the movies, who'd guess) and was re-captured shortly after hitchhiking a side road.

I pretty much forgot about Paul after that til recently I was telling my wife about the wrestling incident and we looked up the case online tonight.

So Paul getting arrested for strangulation is news to me, but not surprising, I guess if you kill once, it becomes logical to a killer to deal with problems the next time in the same manner.

It's too bad that innocent people had to lose their lives due to Paul's problems dealing with life.

if the case you are referring to is when he killed kim then you are completely wrong on your details. it was my stepmom he stabbed to death and i was NEVER his girlfriend. i do not know where you came up with that story unless he stabbed someone else that i do not know about. the incident i know of was in 1986.

he killed her because he was supposedly a schizophrenic, heard voices telling him to kill. he also hated his dad and she reminded him of his dad but she was an easier target. no matter what the reason i will always hate him!

I remember Paul and the case from Rockford very well. Paul was very good friends with my older brother during their early years in Junior High/Highschool. They played hockey together. I think part of paul's problems stemmed from fitting in. His family moved to Rockford and although he had friends he did not grow up with any of us and was always acting out to "show off". I remember him using me as a wrestling dummy to show how good he was (I was 10 years old...not too difficult but hurt like hell). As I can recall his first problems came from vandalizing a school and then came the murder. Of course no-one besides paul can know his true intent on murdering K Shattuck, but the papers did tell the story of Tracy (Step-daughter) making a fictional bet with Paul for the car and when he did not actually win the bet (who in the hell would really bet their parents car, the guy is insane) he went into a rage. He worked fairly close to the Shattuck home and broke in one afternoon. He waited for her in the bathroom shower and then attacked her. The +55 stabbings is correct and the last twist toi the story is that he supposedly had a "kill list" and my brother, a number of his friends and coaches were supposed to be on it, not sure if that is true though. I think his family may have moved back to Canada after the murders, but not sure.

I'm Kim's sister, for this Tracy to even call my sister her "mom" makes me sick! She was Bouchard girlfriend at the time. I had a run in with this little girl at the time of my sisters murder.My sister was this girl step-mom, for her to act like she loved Kim so much just makes me sick. There is a lot she has never told anyone about,like the letters the police found with her stating she wish my sister dead. She got her wish. My sister was stabbed over 80 plus times by this crazy, it completely torn my family apart. this Sept 3 will be 25 years. you never get over it, never!! This man should have been given the death penalty. I'm not sure what happen to these other women sense I do not live in Rockford anymore.But I will pray for them. If some one could inform me I would like to know about what took place with these other cases
