Slain Langford teen featured in Vanity Fair

Murdered Langford teen Kimberly Proctor is the subject of a feature story in the current issue of Vanity Fair magazine.

New York-based journalist David Kushner came to Langford for the sentencing hearing for killers Kruse Wellwood and Cameron Moffat in May. Based on interviews with Proctor's family and friends, as well as court-released documents, the article pieces together the timeline of events leading up to and following the brutal murder.

The writer dwells on the role the Internet and technology played in the young men luring Proctor into their trap, writing, “Parents used to be afraid of kids, building bombs in their basements. But today’s teenagers have found a more clandestine spot: a digital basement.”

Wellwood, 17, and Moffat,19, are serving life in prison.

Vanity Fair is available on newsstands and the full article "Murder by Text" is online at www.vanityfair.com.

Proctor’s aunt Jo-Anne Landolt is looking to launch a school safety program and is part of an online competition for a $150,000 Aviva Community Fund grant.

Voting runs until Nov. 9 at www.avivacommunityfund.org, search for idea 11490.
