Parents of Calif. Boys Killed After Ding-Dong Ditch Prank Forgive Suspect: 'It's What We Believe'

Although the families seek justice, each of the mourning parents forgives the suspect.

Jacob’s mother Ramona says her son would want her to forgive him: “He would say, ‘Mom, you have to forgive him. You have to. Because unforgiveness does not bring any closure.”

Drake’s father Billy, citing his religious faith, says forgiveness is “what we believe.”

More than anything, the families want to honor their sons’ lives, and have recently launched a website called “I don’t want them to become a statistic — like, ‘Oh, three teenage boys killed,’” says Daniel’s father, Craig.

A GoFundMe page has also been set up to help with medical expenses.
