Vaughn email: 'I look forward to going full native'
Emails show Vaughn planned a 'simple, peaceful' life in Canada
JOLIET, Ill. — A flurry of emails that document plans between a Canadian man and an Oswego man accused of killing his own family to escape to a simpler life in the Canadian wilderness were shown in court Friday.
Stephen Willott, a 31-year-old from near Ottawa in Ontario, Canada, told the jury he was using the social networking website "43 Things" to seek interaction with others who shared his interests in camping and survivalist topics when he came into contact in late 2006 with Christopher Vaughn.
Friday marked the end of the second week of Vaughn's trial at the Will County Courthouse in Joliet. While the state is claiming that, on June 14, 2007, Vaughn killed his wife, Kimberly, and their three children in an SUV along an Interstate 55 frontage road in Channahon, Vaughn's defense attorneys are claiming his wife shot her husband and then the children before committing suicide.
