OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — It’s been almost 13 years since Jo Milligan’s sister and brother-in-law were brutally stabbed to death in their rural Le Flore County home, but Milligan still feels the void their deaths created.
“I miss having a sister. I struggle when someone asks if I have a sister,” Milligan wrote in an April 24 letter to the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board in which she described the impact the deaths of 70-year-old Gloria Plummer and 73-year-old Curtis Plummer had on her.
“Glo (or Gloria) was my big sister — my only sister — my only sibling. And Curt became my brother when I was 5 years old,” Milligan wrote. “When shopping and I pass birthday cards, Valentine cards, etc., always the ones for ‘Sister’ reach out to me. And I cry in the card aisle.”
