Unfortunately there aren't any photos of Jamie, Louie, or Melissa in it but there are online newspaper articles with Jamie and Louie in them, but they're hard to make out. I wish the author had interviewed the parents of Jamie and Louie.
You can see Melissa's grave at findagrave dot com. This story was done on Killer Kids in 2011. It's season 1, episode 3. 7:30 into the episode this story starts. The author is interviewed for it.
In 2007 Melissa's younger brother, Judd, was arrested for sexual assault. You can see his photo here. I found a Vermont television station's post on Facebook from 2012 advertising a 'where are they now' update on the case but couldn't find the actual update video so I have no idea what's going on with anyone involved with the case.
I have a spoiler review with much more info here, wp.me/pLm4B-1LM
I ordered the book, because my college-age daughter saw a show on television about the crime and asked me if I knew about it. I had read the book years ago, but couldn't find my copy. I bought it for her so that she would have a better insight as to the unfortunate outcome of lives gone in the wrong direction. She is studying to be a teacher, and I thought it might be an appropriate exposure for her.
