This site experienced a surge of visits yesterday. Checking my Site Meter, I found out why. In the wake of Guy Croteau’s murder conviction, people were looking for more information on the case. But they weren’t coming here for me, they weren’t searching for Croteau. The words people kept Googling over and over were “Sophie Landry”.
We’ve been accustomed to thinking that the offender holds all the interest and fascination. It is heartening, in this instance at least, that people want to learn more about the victim. I can’t tell you anything about Sophie Landry. I didn’t know her. But it’s nice to know people are still thinking about her, that they care about her.
