A La Porte County woman has moved on but will never forget the sight of a burning cross outside the home of her biracial family nearly 30 years ago.

A then 19-year-old Hanna man, who admitted to making the cross out of scrap lumber at his home and setting it ablaze at the residence, said his actions were not racially motivated.

Allen Stevens, now a local political figure, said he soon turned himself into the police and has led his life in a much more positive fashion.

Debra Dudley, 43, said her family moved to Union Mills to escape deteriorating inner city conditions in East Orange, New Jersey. Dudley said her father unexpectedly died from an aneurysm a few months later. Dudley said her mother was now alone raising her and her two teenage brothers and trying to figure out how to make ends meet.

Several weeks later, in March of 1993, Dudley said she wished her father was there even more, to protect her while watching the six-foot gasoline-soaked cross burning at night in their driveway.
