Convicted Murderer Chris Vaughn’s Parents Speak Out On TV For First Time, Claim Son Is Innocent

Gail and Pierre Vaughn say their lives were changed forever on June 14, 2007, when their daughter-in-law and three grandchildren were shot and killed. Their son, Chris, survived two non-fatal gunshot wounds, but the parents say the media and prosecutors painted Chris as the killer. “The media pointed to Chris right away because he was the only survivor,” says Gail, speaking out in their first national television interview airing Monday on Dr. Phil. “Every article started out accusing him of killing his wife and kids,” Pierre adds. “The media was 100% biased. They already had him guilty.” Hear what the parents say happened during Chris’ trial in the video above. And, hear why they say they never asked Chris what happened during that fateful day.
