Woman Says She Has Night Terrors About Father Who Molested Her As A Child Until He Was Shot And Killed

Viccy was 6 years old the night her father, Vincent, was shot and killed by her older brother, Christopher Bennett. “I remember being abused earlier in the night. I don’t remember the gunshot,” Viccy says. “I remember my sister waking me up and telling me I had to get up because Dad’s head exploded. I thought his head had exploded because he was mad at me.” Viccy and her older sister, Cassie, claim they were both sexually abused by their father starting when they were 3 years old. Christopher claims he saw Vincent molesting Viccy, so he shot him. He took a plea deal of 1,800 years in prison instead of the death penalty. “I feel a lot of guilt about Chris being in prison,” Viccy says. “Even though Chris killed my father, he’s my hero. He saved me and gave me a chance at a future.” Viccy describes how the abuse has affected her life -- including the night terrors she says make it feel like Vincent is still “haunting” her -- in the video above.
