Dillon Cearfoss

Name: Dillon Zachary Cearfoss
Died: August 21, 2012
Age at death: 20
Cause of death: Murder
Location: Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA

Other Victim: Kirsten Landeau, Dillon's aunt. Age 36; NT.

Details:
Dillon had always known he was different. At twenty years old, he had recently been diagnosed with autism. Knowing this about himself gave him the insight he needed to return to school. He was attending community college and thinking of becoming a special education teacher.

Dillon and his aunt were both heavy metal fans. "He was the very definition of a gentleman," a friend remembers. Dillon had a dog named Bark Vader.

Dillon's aunt had recently broken up with her boyfriend. He was an ex-con who had been hitting her and spying on her, even borrowing a friend's car to do so; wisely, Kirsten dumped him. But the day after she did so, he went to Kirsten's house and killed her and Dillon. Dillon was an innocent bystander, in the wrong place at the wrong time. Both will be deeply missed by their family.

Dillon and Kirsten's killer got two consecutive life terms.
