Katy Hutchison

Katy Hutchinson, the mother of fifteen-year-old twins, Emma and Sam, resides with her family in Victoria, BC. She moved to Vancouver Island ten years ago, following the horrific murder of her husband Bob McIntosh. In the course of dealing with the legal issues surrounding Bob’s death, she met and married lawyer Michael Hutchison. After Bob’s murder on New Year’s Eve 1997 Katy waited for five years while the RCMP worked tirelessly to obtain the evidence to prosecute and convict his killers. During that period, Katy developed her perception of the societal forces and lack of understanding amongst young people that created the circumstances leading to Bob’s death. She grew to recognize the need to advise and educate young members of the community about the risks that arise with the combination of young people, alcohol, and a lack of supervision. Watch a mini-documentary about Katy’s story. This piece was put together for BlondeTV by Melanie Morgan and Caitlin Mackenzie. Listen to a podcast interview with Katy by BigSnit’s Robert Ouimet. Katy currently divides her time between working with her husband Michael in his law practice and her growing professional speaking career. Her book entitled Walking After Midnight: One Woman’s Journey Through Murder, Justice and Forgiveness is published in Canada by Raincoast Books and in the US by New Harbinger Publications. Katy was a guest on the radio show “Healing the Grieving Heart” talking about “There is No Rule Book: Finding Foregiveness After the Murder of My Husband.” To hear Katy being interviewed on this show by Dr. Gloria & Dr. Heidi Horsley, click on the following link: www.voiceamericapd.com/health/010157/horsley083007.mp3
