Ten Year Anniversary of the Lillelid Murders
It's hard to believe that it's been almost ten years since the 1997 murders of the Lillelid family--the documentary, Six, that me and my fellow filmmakers produced in 2003 and 2004 tells the story of the murders and explores the background of the six teens who took the lives of an innocent family. Today, the one sole survivor, Peter Lillelid, only a toddler at the time of the tragedy, is living with his relatives in Sweden. WBIR, one of our local news stations here in Knoxville sent a reporter to Sweden to find out how Peter was doing. Here is some information and a few pictures on his life there. If you are in the Knoxville area, you can catch the complete report on Peter Lillelid's life in Sweden which will air on 10News at 6 and 11 on Tuesday, February 13. Hopefully, WBIR will put the footage of Peter online so I can link to it next week for those of you who would like to see more about this brave young boy who survived a mass shooting. It is amazing that the human spirit can endure, despite the cruelty of some of our fellow human beings.
