“She Doesn’t Need Jail. She Needs Help!”

By Ray Duckler – Monitor Staff

Marcia Morris, who’s devoted a huge portion of her life trying to help Katherine Drouin, grew frustrated and buried her face in her hands, disappearing into darkness.

Tom Elliott, the superintendent of the Grafton County Jail, sugarcoated nothing, saying Drouin’s battle with a decades-long eating disorder and her inability to avoid jail have created the most “difficult”case he’s seen during his long career.

And Drouin’s father, Don Drouin, juggles his emotions like a magician, moving from sadness to anger to hopelessness through Drouin’s ongoing, lifelong fight against bulimia nervosa.
