FOX 4 spoke with Eaton’s mom on Friday morning, who said she’s still dealing with the kidnapping and murder of daughter Pamela Butler, which happened in 1999.
“I can’t believe this has happened to me again,” Cherri West said. “You kind of sit back and you wonder what have you done in life for something like this to be done to you.”
She told FOX 4 that Eaton was her rock to rely on.
“Casey was the oldest sister,” West said. “She was my biggest helper. Anything that I needed done, like taking the kids to the dentist, do whatever, she did for me because I work.”
The mom says that Eaton was the one who ran after Keith Nelson when he took Butler from the front of their KCK home.
“She was screaming down the street, and that’s where the neighbor on the next block come down and started chasing the truck and lost it, but he got the tag number for us,” West said.
