Dear Disgusted,
I happen to know the victim quite well. She is a victim...and if you can tell her and the rest of us (the general public) HOW we can find out a person's real history, please do so now. My friend did have reservations about this guy; I work in a large law firm and spent many, many hours trying to find out any information I could, but guess what...his criminal record was not available through any of the resources I have access to! Obviously you have never heard of guys who won't let go, who at first act like the nicest guy in the world, then turn out to be psychopaths, and you have no idea what it's like to try to get away from people like that. And as for what were they doing in a cemetery...haven't you ever heard of visiting relatives' graves. It doesn't matter where they were, if this guy was going to snap and start attacking her, he was going to do it no matter where they were, as long as they were alone. Personally, I believe she is very lucky that this happened where it did...had it happened in the privacy of her own home, things probably would've been horrifyingly worse than it was! Don't judge others until you've walked AT LEAST a mile in their shoes. Not everyone has the ESP powers that you apparently have.
What you just stated makes ABSOLUTELY NO sense at all considering all you have to do is type his name into any computer and all of the information on his crime is on the screen in a matter of seconds. I'm not defending what he did but there are always 2 side to every story and then there's the truth and we haven't gotten the entire truth in this case which is obvious by the dishonesty displayed here by you. As for Paul we all have our demons, some of us worse than others. The Lord says to forgive and to help one another. Let me tell you the side of Paul that I know. He saved me from an abusive relationship, he had already told me everything he had done but I didn't see any of that anger in him, a month after meeting he and I met up, I was bruised by the man I had previously been dating and Paul was devastated and angered by what happened to me. He was also angry with himself for what he had done in the past. That was over 9 months ago and believe me he and I argue, he gets mad but he is NEVER violent. Ever. And you forgot to mention that in Janes own statements after he was arrested, she stated that he was not typically violent, he was angry with her, he had been drinking and she had been cheating on him. Yes, I got access to her statements because they are public information just like everything else that you claimed you couldn't find. He never denied his wrong doing.

Paul is a lunatic and a compulsive liar. I was with the man when he lived in Florida. Our relationship ended with him beating the crapola out of me and following me to my car with a knife. Don't believe anything Paul says- he has a true psychological condition that causes him to make up stories. I spoke with another ex of his in Florida and she was like, "I'm sorry I was rude to you at the pool" and I was like wtf are you talking about? She told me she was at a pool with Paul and he pointed at some woman that wasn't me, and said there's my ex right there, she cheated on me and broke my heart. She reacted to some innocent woman because of Paul and his incessant lying. He is an alcoholic and becomes very, very, scary. Run away as fast as you can. This man should not be allowed to interact with normal people. Paul has more than "demons" ok? Please believe me

I can never take back what I did and all Ive tried to do after the fact is make amends in anyway that I can and Ive had fuckups along the way and I dont have to defend myself nor am I misunderstood. I fucked up horribly but Ive also done a phenomenal amount of good things in helping others but I know that doesnt matter to you and I dont expect it to.I can never take back or make right to you or family what Ive done that is a debt that millenia couldnt erase.I know you have it stuck in your head Tracy was connected but thats your own fucked up thinking.I heard years ago about your arrest for embezzlement orfraud for stealing money from your company.I hope that has blown over.Im not seeking sympathy or even empathy or understanding.I can never make it right but I Alone am responsible and accountable for my actions and no one else and if stabbing myself over anover would do the triick Id do it in a heartbeat but it wouldnt change the past.I am sorry for the pain Ive caused but what events took place before that are irrelevant to your pain and suffering and I cannot right eitherl

This is the stepdaughter and I don't know who you are but you obviously don't know me or any of the facts. None of what you said was even true. You were not with me when we watched them bring her out of our house. You have no idea how upset I was and how close our relationship even was. If you knew me as good as the closest friends I had at the time then you would know how much I love her. I know that anyone who truly knew me back then would know that what you say is not true. I know the truth and that is all that really matters to me but you need to get facts straight before trying expressing what you think you know.
Tracy it just goes to show once again your a lair, you never cried at all, not even after the funeral , or during. It took everything I had that day, at the funeral not to take you outside and kick your ass. you were standing around laughing with your friends,Then when I got back to the house you once again if not for my family holding me back. you were going to get that ass beat down. You were holding my baby, which I took out of your arms and gave to my husband. then as I came for you my family and you brothers stop me. you never show and care for Kim.. so like this girl is talking about you wanted your 15 minutes of fame, weirdo ! and like I have said before you letter was not in the casket when Kim was buried. I took it out and torn the hell out of your lies.

Mommam1n........I am not certain this "Paul Bouchard" is actually him, I think it is Tracy again. Because she still cant help herself but come back here over and over. So not sure how many of these different names are her but I highly doubt someone like Paul with all his troubles and issues is getting on the internet and looking up his name so he can communicate with the peoples family he killed and look at all the crap that people are saying about him. I think he is a nut job for sure but as for being on here.I doubt it. Doesn't fit the profile. But it does for Tracy. She already got called out for being on here after this many years and obviously was getting "alerts" sent to her that there was a new message. But she needs to stay anonymous now so she doesn't appear guilty. And it sure benefits her to pretend to be Paul and say Tracy wasn't involved. But the guilt she may have could be more plausible with the content of "his" post. And if it was Paul, what is the likelihood of him knowing anything about Kims families financial situation? You know with being in prison and all I doubt he is getting updates on your family. But Tracy on the other hand would have more reason to mention it and is and more likely to know about your family as she seems to be able to keep up with things from the past, like this post. So I think Tracy just found another way to get in on the posts again. Profiling 101. The guilty that were never prosecuted remain obsessed with the events of the crime and stay in contact with anything or anyone related to the incident. However the guilty that were prosecuted are usually less attached to the past incident and steer clear of any encounters that would bring the past incident to present day or current life situations. So I would beware of this person claiming to be Paul, because all studies less likelihood of it being him are slim to none, and much more likely to be the main culprit that cannot refrain from seeing how close the authorities are getting to actually pinning the crime on her as there is no statue of limitations on murder.

Curious01 I have known Paul and I can tell that the I Alone is his "message" I'm not sure when exactly he started that but it is his. And the timing of his post would coincide with his latest release. The statements he makes about the embezzlement is actually a story that he has told several people regarding the victims family also something about a drug arrest. And you are completely wrong about him looking on here because he has been looking on here since 2013 and probably longer. As for having the statement regarding him getting information about that family in prison, well it's quite simple to get information in prison, especially if you are an intelligent man such as Paul. Studies, like anything in life are not a guarantee. He smart, resourceful and that part of him that isn't broken is remorseful and wants forgiveness. He, like all of us is not a one-sided coin. I can say that I have seen both sides, the anger is like nothing I have ever encountered, even his words can make you tremble but I can say that even in his anger I was fortunate enough to be able to say that he never physically hurt me. He could have at any time but he chose not to even in a fit of rage. Also it's quite easy to follow any person still in the system. He is not in CT, FL, LA or Illinois, he is with family and I, as a person that believes God is our judge pray that he will succeed. My heart goes out to the victim's family and anyone else he as ever hurt I pray that God will help them to heal.

The guilty always accuse the loudest and through their BS around about believing in God and forgiveness. They have to believe in forgiveness because people like you are doing the most dirt more than likely. Your less than nothing. Not even worthy of a name. But keep poking the beast and don't be surprised if you get eaten. It amazes me people are so wrapped up with this guy. Get a life and focus on positive things like YOU not being a lying deceitful underhanded skank
