Often neglected and abused by Diane Downs, the children were dealt yet another indignity by their mother.
Cheryl Downs died. Christie Downs survived the shooting with injuries. Danny Downs survived but was paralyzed.
They were shot by their mother Diane Downs who then did everything in her power to ensure that none of the children survived. From waiting a period of time to driving very slowly to the hospital and then claiming a stranger had shot the children, Diane Downs spun her lies to suit her story.
After Christie and Daniel were adopted by Fred and Joan Hugi, their lives stabilized. Both children attended school and then on to college. Although paralyzed Dan participated in the Varsity swim team. He went on to a career in computers while Christie became interested in social work. She married the son of a former police officer and had a baby son in 2005. Source: Ann Rule's Blog & news media.
