Post Author Richard Logan has agreed to do either a live chat or email interview!
If this book discussion is active enough we'll be doing a live chat session with the author. If not we'll still be doing an email interview. Richard Logan and I have talked through email and he is interested in answering our questions about the amazing story of Tere Duperrault. You're going to want to get a copy of the book and participate in this one. :)

Hi Richard,
Don't want to bother you but I was just interested in the forum. I am Colleen Verdon Quinn and one of Dr. Verdon's daughters (he was Terri's physician). I was just going to read some of the forums. I purchased the book a few weeks ago but have not yet read it. We remember Dad and how upset he was when this happened. He loved children. We were 5 girls and he adopted 3 boys (I'm sure if she had no relatives she would have been our sister).
She was the bravest girl I have ever known. I heard Richard Logan PHD did a wonderful job on the book and I am going to read it this week.
Colleen

Colleen thank you for your post. It is great to hear from someone with a personal connection to Tere's story.

If it isn't too much trouble we would appreciate hearing your personal recollections and that of your father's, even things you might consider trivial.

Thanks again for your post.

Tere must have touched so many people in so many different ways. Thank you Colleen for your words, I'm sure your father was shocked by these events.

Lance Harvey, Julian's Harvey's son, who lived with his Dad and Stepmom, was my best friend. I spent many nights at his house, and aboard the Yacht Bluebelle. I lived at 1930 NW 13 St, Miami, FL, growing up a few houses for Julian's house.

There is an untold story that is almost as horrific as to what happened to Lance afterwards. I was the one who told him his Dad committed suicide.

I believe Tere Jo would be interested in hearing "the rest of the story" as to what happened with Julian's son afterward.

Please contact me if you or Tere Jo are interested

It's a very long and tragic story After Lance found out from me that his father had committed suicide, he lived with another Captain's family (the same family he was staying with when the Yacht Bluebelle went down). Captain Jack Williams was the skipper of another Yacht named "Alesia" docked about 100 yards south of the Bluebelle's docks.

One night, President Richard Nixon showed up with his daughters for a ride on the "Alecia".

Captain Jack Williams was married to Gloria Williams, and had three children with Gloria, Jamie, Madeline and Beverly. The family was pretty disfunctional with Jamie being Gay, Madeline promiscuous and the same age as Lance, and Beverly still sucked her thumb when she was eleven years old. Jack sailed the "Alesia" up to the great lakes every summer, which left poor Gloria very lonely for a few months every year...rumors about her extra activities were rampent.

One summer, Lance and Gloria decided to drive her new convertable T-Bird to California to visit frinds and relatives, and when they returned, the family accused them of having an affair.

Lance and I stayed very close. I was working on another Yacht, the Marco Polo, and got Lance a job on the yacht with me. Shortly after, I married and moved into an apartment, Lance stayed living on the Yacht.

One evening, a few days later, Jamie got into a fight with his mother about Lance, and beat her up. Gloria called me at 3AM that day and asked my to come over and see her, but I politely declined because I was in bed, with my newly wed wife.

When Beverly came home from school at 3PM the same day, she found her mother, Gloria, dead, hanging from the showerhead in the bathroom at their house. The entire family estranged Lance. He borrowed all the money I had, about $1,600, and left for California. I did not see him again for a few more years, but he did mail me a check for what he borrowed and paid me back in full.

The next time I saw Lance was at midnight in the Sportsman Bar in Miami, on NW 20th Street and 22nd Avenue. He was missing an eye. If you are interested in hearing the rest of the story, let me know.

Wow, this is an amazing story. I wonder where Lance is right now. Are you sure posting your phone number here is a good idea?

It is part of our nature to be curious and I do feel sorry for Harvey's family, but unless the continuation of the tale includes a resolution of the mysteries left unanswered by Harvey's suicide I don't see the point in learning about how his crime affected his family. I doubt any family could have such a close association with a sensational murder and not be hurt.
