Never Forgive, Never Forget
Venus' mother believes her daughter's husband lured her outside. They fought. He won. Venus' mom wants her daughter back, dead or alive.
Never Forgive, Never Forget: A Shocking True Crime Story by Rod Kackley tells the shocking true crime story of a woman whose fear of her husband seems to turn out to be justified, and the story of a mother’s quest to win the return of her child — her best friend — even if it’s only to bury her.
The disappearance of Venus Stewart is a shocking true crime story that rocked southwest Michigan and eventually the nation.
The police and her mother were sure Venus’ husband killed her. But he was in Newport News, Virginia when the crime was committed in Michigan. The neighbors saw him. He used his credit cards and even paid on his account at his lawyer’s office.
And it wasn’t just the day that Venus disappeared that her husband was seen in Newport News. He was spotted the next day too. How can anyone be in two places at one time?
Here’s something else: no corpse. That’s right, the police don’t have a body. How can investigators even be sure Venus is dead?
Her mother had to wait more than eight long years — 3,101 days — before finding out what had happened to her child.
A community rose up to stand by Therese McComb and her mission to learn the truth, and after searching for Venus hundreds of times, they stood by Therese at the very end.
Never Forgive, Never Forget: A Shocking True Crime Story is a page-turning, hard-hitting tale of a mother’s undying devotion and love for her child; and two police officers’ refusal to give up, that you too, will never forget.
Here’s another question. If you were the community, the police, the mother; could you ever forgive?
