  • VIDEO After Sentencing and Apology, Pain Still Fresh for Quinn’s Family

    While satisfied that her former husband got the maximum sentence, if he got 100 years, Andrea Gosse says it wouldn’t have been enough.

    I get up everyday and come to the realization that I’m not a mom anymore.
    – Andrea Gosse

    Gosse addressed media outside the Supreme Court in St. John’s after Trent Butt’s sentencing in the murder of his five-year-old daughter Quinn at his Carbonear home nearly three years to the day after she was killed.

    Gosse says with Butt’s sentencing now over, she’s going to focus on ways to make the lives of other children better. She says Quinn’s death is something she still lives with every single day.

    She gets up every day coming to the realization that she’s not a mom anymore.

    She finds it hard to get out of bed each morning and “that’s what he did to us, and I can never forgive that.”

    She was shocked and surprised to hear Butt tell the court this morning that he was sorry. She says the words ring hollow.

    She says you can’t say sorry, and say you love someone, yet smother them.

    That, she says, is not love.
