The sad tale of a senseless death has some resolution for the family of Catherine “Cassie” Heppner.  In a plea deal, her murderer is expected to plead guilty to the fatal stabbing death of the 46-year-old Timberland marketing director according to  Without a guilty plea, he could have faced life in prison without the possibility of parole.  His sentencing is November 3.  She had just stopped by the company’s corporate headquarters on a Sunday to pick up some items needed for a business trip when the fatal attack occurred.


When Someone You Trust Isn’t Safe


What makes the crime more heartbreaking is the alleged perpetrator of this horrendous act was a security guard at the building.  When a person is put in a place of trust, I believe they should receive a tougher penalty under the law.  This senseless act left a family without a mother.  Cassie Heppner leaves behind a bereaved husband and an 8-year-old son.
