Lauren Astley’s Father Wants Some Good To Come From Her Death

WBUR 7/15/11: Lauren Astley’s Father Wants Some Good To Come From Her Death. Earlier this month, 18-year-old Lauren Astley of Wayland was strangled to death, her body left in a marsh. Police say her former boyfriend, 18-year-old Nathaniel Fujita, killed her in reaction to their April break-up. Lauren’s father, Malcolm Astley, a town school committee member and former principal, says he badly wants some good to result from this tragedy — maybe a better understanding of teen dating violence. That attitude of wanting something positive to come out of something horrific has defined his public comments about his daughter’s murder. We sat down with Malcolm Astley on the porch of the family’s Wayland home and asked him to describe Lauren, who was his only child.
