The strain of another verdict: Frank and Janice Renn discuss the upcoming verdict in their daughter’s, grandchildren’s murder case

NEW ALBANY —

For the third time, Frank and Janice Renn will hear a verdict in a case they’ve been fighting for 13 years. A jury will again pass judgment on the man they believe killed their daughter and grandchildren. 

As the trial of David Camm, the former Indiana State Police trooper accused of killing Kimberly Camm and their two young children, Brad and Jill, in their Georgetown home in 2000, comes to a close, the Renns hope the jury sides with them on what they think is just.

But they said no matter which way the final judgment falls after closing arguments start today, they won’t ever have real closure.

“It’s just hard,” Janice said. “We’re living it all over again each time. It’s still with you all the time. After a while, it heals a little like a sore and you tear the scab off, then it hurts all over again. 

“I haven’t looked at the pictures [of the scene], but just hearing them describe the wounds and everything just tears at your heart.”

Though pleased with the speed of the trial and the upcoming decision on whether to find Camm guilty, Frank said it’s difficult to hear everything again and thus, relive it.

“[The trials] are all pretty well the same,” Frank said. “This one had some new people come in versus the last two, but it’s bringing the memories back again. You think you’re getting over it and it comes right back over you again.”

Frank said he firmly believes Camm is responsible for the deaths of Kim and their children, Jill and Brad, based on Camm’s testimony in the first trial. He said the evidence in this trial hasn’t swayed his opinion.

“We felt during the first trial, we think David told too many stories and you can see he’s trying to change his story to fit the evidence,” Frank said. “That tells me right there that he has some guilt.”
