Katy Hutchinson, International RJ Advocate, Author, and Speaker

Katy Hutchison's Biography:
Katy resides in Victoria, BC. She moved back to Vancouver Island sixteen years ago, following the murder of her husband Bob McIntosh. In the course of dealing with the legal issues surrounding Bob's death, she met and married lawyer Michael Hutchison.

After Bob's murder on New Year's Eve 1997 Katy waited for five years while the police worked tirelessly to obtain the evidence to prosecute and convict his killers. During that period, Katy developed her perception of the societal forces and lack of understanding amongst young people that created the circumstances leading to Bob's death. She grew to recognize the need to advise and educate young members of the community about the risks that arise with the combination of young people, alcohol, and a lack of supervision.

Katy currently divides her time between working with her husband Michael in his law practice and her professional speaking career. She sits on the Board of Glenlyon Norfolk School and sat on the Board of Restorative Practices International.

Her book (shown at right) entitled Walking After Midnight: One Woman's Journey Through Murder, Justice and Forgiveness is published in Canada by Raincoast Books and in the US by New Harbinger Publications

In 2010 Katy's powerful story inspired Lifetime Network's movie Bond of Silence
