PMAKid: A lot of people know who you are and it is not because of a happy reason. It is because a guy named Richard Allen Davis snuck into your house and kidnapped your daughter Polly. He also murdered her. I have read a lot about what happened, but it is hard to see what she was like as a person. I know that she was the same age that I am right now, but what was she really like before all that awful stuff happened?
Mr. Klaas: Polly was my only child and I thought that she was the best person that I have ever known. She filled my life with happiness, love, and hope. She was a very pretty little girl with a sunny disposition and a natural talent for acting. Polly was smart and had a goofy sense of humor. She was working very hard to overcome her shy nature and was beginning to realize the person that she would become. I was teaching her how to play baseball because she wanted to play with the boys.
