Abuse Victim’s Parents Praise ‘Brave’ Teri Hatcher

Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher has been hailed for her courage by the parents of her uncle’s suicide abuse victim.

The actress only came forward to give evidence to police in 2002, more than 30 years after perverted Richard Hayes Stone molested her as a child.

She was prompted by the news that another of her relative’s victims–14-year-old Sarah Van Cleemput–had shot herself dead after suffering four years of similar abuse.

Van Cleemput’s parents are grateful that Hatcher had the strength to speak out, and have praised her recent frank interview with Vanity Fair magazine where she reveals her torment for the first time to the public.

Patrick Van Cleemput says, “This man devastated all of our lives.

“Teri has been battling with it for more than 30 years and is still suffering. To come forward takes great courage.”
