    “Not in My Name”
    A Murder Victim Family Member’s Reflection on the Death Penalty

    Becky O’Neil McBrayer is the Director of Community Programs at St. Andre Bessette Catholic Church in Downtown Portland. She is alumni of All Saints School, Central Catholic High School, and Bellarmine University. In 2006, Becky’s Mother, Timmie O’Neil, and Stepfather, Craig Stumpf, were brutally murdered at the hands of her youngest brother, Joseph. Her family was thrust into the judicial system as Clackamas County prosecutors argued for the death penalty. Becky’s Catholic faith and journey of hope led her to the abolition movement. She is a member of Murder Victims Families for Reconciliation and serves on the Board of Directors of Oregonians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty.
