It has been almost two years since Beverly Allen drove to Buffalo to check on her daughter, Kristie, who was house-sitting for vacationing friends.
Not long after she walked inside the house, she discovered Kristie’s body in a bedroom. The man accused of her murder fled in her daughter’s car. He was apprehended quickly but has yet to go to trial.
Allen, 28 at the time of her death, is buried at the back of Red Hill Cemetery. Her resting place is noted by a plain metal marker supplied by the funeral home.
