Nathan Dunlap: Mom of victim Ben Grant latest to call for killer to die

We've been covering a clemency bid by Nathan Dunlap, who killed four people at a Chuck E. Cheese in 1993; see our previous coverage below.

Yesterday, we shared a letter to Governor John Hickenlooper by a woman who was scheduled to work at the restaurant on the fateful evening but took the night off instead; she urged him to go forward with the execution. Today comes a similar statement from the mom of a co-worker who wasn't so fortunate. She, too, thinks the appropriate sentence is death.
