The first was the invasion of the home of Dr. Petit which took three lives.
Hopefully the last, at least for a while, was the massacre at an elementary school which mowed down 20 children and six staff members.
None of these have become past history. Deep sadness hovers over the state.
The fatal fire lives on in litigation.
During the process for one, photos have emerged of aspects of the charred This Old House in Stamford. There are heart-breaking snapshots of a doll house, for instance. Here is the coverage by the New York Post.
One reason the litigation continues is because the City of Stamford bulldozed the house and discarded all its contents. Because of that, no evidence is left which could confirm or rule out theories about how the fire started. Various parties are suing the City of Stanford.
It is only conjecture that hot ash from the fireplace placed in the mud room ignited the blaze. Another theory is faulty wiring.
Madonna Badger, whose three daughters and parents died in the fire, has managed to emotionally bounce back. There was an attempt at suicide. She has returned to her field of advertising and remarried.
Her former husband, from whom she was divorced at the time of the fire, recently died of heart disease. Matthew Badger, father of the girls, had been 51. His estate continues to litigate.
