    She claimed, ‘I was looking for a non-violent way to act effectively, but it didn’t exist.’
    Schroeder’s daughter commented, ‘For reasons I will never comprehend, the press and public seem far more interested in the difficulties Katherine Power has inflicted on herself than in the very real and horrible suffering she inflicted on my family.’

    She was valedictorian of her class.
    She turned herself in.
    She said about Schroeder, ‘His death was shocking to me, and I have had to examine my conscience and accept any responsibility I have for the event that led to it.’
