Abstract

On December 26th, 2009 David DelSignore struck four girls with his pick-up truck, killing two of them instantly. He was legally drunk. The ensuing court case and media coverage engaged the community in fierce debate over issues ranging from DUI laws to parenting to the role of media in the justice system.

My presentation will track the narrative of DelSignore's tragic story, from his old life as a reputable rabbit breeder and mentor to children to his current life as an inmate at Montana State Prison. Pulling from interviews, court documents, and newspaper clippings, I will tell the story of lives lost, and the tragedy that galvanized a community.
