John Butterworth, the only surviving brother of Lucille Butterworth, described it as a “great breakthrough.”

His daughter, Kassie Lee McDiarmid, said that not knowing what had happened hurt his heart.

“it owned daddy’s life, it was all about Lucille even in the last few months-it ate him up, really, it destroyed him,” she said.

“I’m glad I finally got the answer, but it’s a little disappointing that the police actually knew this evidence and information and did nothing before my dad died in A|pril, so dad I was able to have the tranquility he wanted to pass by.”
