Thoughts? While there's not much additional information available online about Janis Pulliam's murder, this is a case that apparently had long lasting effects as her son Brian Pulliam was convicted of murdering his former girlfriend and her nephew two years ago: www.abqjournal.com/585058/life-sentence-in-deaths.html
While making absolutely no excuses for his terrible crime, Brian was only a teenager when his mother was murdered and I can only imagine the effect it had on him.
In any case, Janis Pulliam has not had anyone go on trial for her murder yet, and that needs to change.
