The Life and Murder of Andrew Bagby

Dear Zachary DVD coverOne would think that a woman fighting extradition from Canada to America for murdering her ex-boyfriend wouldn’t retain custody of their baby, Zachary. Such is the case in the outrageous documentary Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father. Dear Zachary began as a living portrait by filmmaker Kurt Kuenne of his murdered best friend – a film to show Zachary how loving and loved his father, Andrew Bagby, was. The focus shifts between fond remembrances, the brutal facts of Bagby’s death, Canadian bail reform and the custody battle between Bagby’s parents and his murderer over Zachary. This movie will put you in a rage and make you cry, but it also helped reform the Canadian justice system.
