(KRON) — After 21 years, Polly klaas’ kidnapping, rape, and murder do not get any easier for her parents.
“I mean it’s something that I think about when I go to bed at night and the first thing I think about when I wake up,” said Polly’s father, Marc Klaas.
Polly’s presence is felt all throughout the Klaas home. An angel with Polly’s name written all over it in the kitchen.
Then there are photos of Polly at different ages, and a portrait hanging on the wall
“You know they ask what’s the one thing you’d take if your house was burning down? I’d take this portrait,” Klaas said.
Wanting to give meaning to their daughter’s death, Polly’s parents created a legacy in her name, The Klaas Kids Foundation. The foundation was created to help search for and stop crimes against children.
Although Polly’s murderer has been convicted, her father says justice has yet to be served.
“That piece of crap still lives. He was sentenced to death in 1996 and because of death penalty abolitionists, he and 500 plus monsters continue to live in san Quentin and find their own ways to torment society,” Klaas said.
“Justice will only be solved for Polly when this individual is executed.”
