Early on an April morning, eighteen-year-old Billy Frank Gilley, Jr., killed his sleeping parents. Surprised in the act by his younger sister, Becky, he turned on her as well. Billy then climbed the stairs to the bedroom of his other sister, Jody, and said, a€œWea€™re free.a€ But is one ever free after an unredeemable act of violence? The Gilley family murders ended a lifetime of physical and mental abuse suffered by Billy and Jody at the hands of their parents. And it required each of the two survivorsa€“one a convicted murderer, the other suddenly an orphana€“to create a new identity, a new life.Two teenagers from the backwaters of northern California could find plenty to look at just walking along the Strip. Back home, though, their choices were less attractive. Either the couple freeloaded off one or another set of parents, whose generosity was grudging at best, or they took off on ... kind of work they were qualified to do, which wasa€”aside from Billa#39;s being able to fix carsa€”unskilled manual labor.
