With a trembling hand, Mary McLaughlin picked up the silver frame holding two photos of her son Jason and pressed a button to activate a tiny voice recorder inside. A cheerful greeting rang out: "Happy Father's Day, from your favorite child!"
On a cool fall day, just three months after he gave the frame to his dad, John Jason McLaughlin took a .22-caliber pistol to Rocori High School and murdered two students.
Today, two years later, the picture frame sits in a place of honor amid a sea of family snapshots in his parents' bedroom.
