It Wasn't Me[Posted 18-Jul-2010]
A dreadful sexual assault in Canada was recently perpetrated by some fellow with the same name as me. (http://news.nationalpost.com/2010/07/15/reports-arrest-in-cemetery-sex-assault/) It was brought to my attention by someone who googled the man's name and came across this website. Creepy to see my name associated with this terrible behaviour.
There are many Russell Kirkpatricks in the USA and Canada. Not sure why! I have Irish ancestry - from Ballymoney, a town in Northern Ireland north of Belfast - but know little about it as my paternal grandfather was a secretive man who died before I was born, and my father kept his own counsel. I intend to find out, though.
