"I drive past the soccer fields that my daughter used to play on and I can still see her running across the field. I drive pass Abilene Christian Schools and I still see my daughter running down the hallway to come get in the car," says Lee.
She says despite that, she feels it is the right time for her to be in Abilene.
"It's pretty common knowledge that on February fourth 2007, my son, who was 13 at the time, Paris, murdered his sister Ella, who was four, and that's all I really want to share," said Lee.
A 911 call was made by 13-year-old Paris from the 800 block of Davis Street that day in February. Paris told dispatchers he'd stabbed and killed his little sister.
It was later revealed that he had stabbed her multiple times.
After the incident Lee said she felt shunned by the Abilene community, so why would she come back?
"The main reason that I do what I do is because if I don't then my family would have been destroyed just because my son is a very dangerous person," said Lee.
Lee helps others who have been through a traumatic experience. She is starting the Ella Foundation, a team of people that police can call immediately after a homicide.
"They will request an Ella member who will be a victim advocate for what we call the secondary interciary victims of homicide, which are the friends, families and loved ones of the victim," said Lee.
And team Ella will stay by the family all the way through the judicial process. Lee said it will show them they can get through it with Ella's help.
"And so you give them empathy, love, lessons and hopefully that leads to them taking action," said Lee.
Her son Paris is serving a 40 year prison sentence. Lee will be telling her story at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 27th at the Abilene Civic Center during Stop the Violence project.
