  • As years pass without more convictions and politics continuing to work against them, David’s family remains heartbroken, still struggling but devoted to finding justice. Join David’s sister Doreen McGettigan in Bristol boyz Stomp as she takes you on a journey, navigating through the justice system, learning to deal with media, and facing the grieving process.

  • Thank you Cheryl. I am so sorry about your aunt, I hope you have tons of good memories…

  • Cheryl Petrino Gublo:

    Doreen,
    Thank you for sharing your story. My aunt was brutally murdered in the Bristol area in the mid-60’s. Fortunately, the person responsible was captured and is still in prison. My family still mourns Aunt Lucy. I lived in the Edgely section of Bristol Township when your brother, David was murdered and still remember the details. My ex-husband’s grandmother lived on Wilson Avenue and we were very concerned abnout her safety. Having three sons of my own, 19, 17 and 8, I constantly worry about their safety. God Bless You and Your Family.
    Regards,
    Cheryl Gublo

  • I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good. I do not know who you are but definitely you’re going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!

  • I was born here too, although I traveled a bit and lived in New England quite a few years before moving back here.

  • I would love to make a stop in Jacksonville that is where I was born. I will let you know if it happens.

  • Will you be stopping in Jacksonville, Fla., or thereabouts?

  • Thanks for the great read, i will be back for sure!

  • Haven’t had time to read everything yet, but so far i am loving it
