A murder is always an event of unimaginable grief for the loved-ones the victim leaves behind. Yet for the family and friends of Andrew Bagby, a promising young doctor who had seemingly found fulfillment after several hard years of putting himself through medical school abroad, his untimely death was only the beginning of their ordeal. It was a story that would start with his cold-blooded execution in a parking lot and would end with the death of his infant son. The story is made all the more heart-wrenching by the fact that one-year-old Zachary Turner did not need to die, his death was entirely preventable.

By all accounts, Andrew Bagby, the only son of a US Navy serviceman and an English nurse, was a charismatic and well-liked young man with a bright future ahead of him. His hoped-for career in medicine suffered an early setback when he failed to secure a place at medical school at the first time of asking, but his response was characteristically positive, and he resolved to find a job and reapply the following year. He was finally accepted into Memorial University in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada, and he prepared to move away from his native California to follow his dreams.
