To the editor,

Wow! I read your story, “A story of terror and murder” in your Nov. 7 edition of the Wildwood Leader. My name is Sean Breslin, and my aunt was Doris Breslin, that you referred to in the story. I’m 52 years old and was never told about this crime. I read your article with great interest and just ordered the book. I guess every family has secrets, but mine was mind-blowing.
