Dollie Gouge

Dollie Gouge was a loving mother, grandmother, and Bible school teacher. She was respected in the community and well-known for caring for anyone in need. She had been the full-time caregiver of her mother for 25 years.

In 1987, Dollie was abducted from her home and brutally murdered. Her body was dumped in an embankment in Watauga, Tennessee, and wasn't discovered for months.Dollie Gouge

Her daughter, Laverne Craig, says the murderer has continued to torture her family from his prison cell, suing the family multiple times.

Laverne and her family have fought for victims' rights ever since Dollie’s murder. That's why she endorses Marsy's Law for Tennessee.

    This was a senseless murder by a monster that had no regard for human life. A woman with such virtues. A Godly woman that loved her family, community and her church. He deserves to stay in prison. His rights were taken away when he murdered Dolly and dumped her like a piece of trash. He deserves not to see the light of day.
