(WBIR, Knoxville) - The parents of murdered Knox County couple Channon Christian and Chris Newsom are on their way to meet with a national TV host to talk about what happened to their children.
Earlier this month, Glenn Beck shared the story of Christian and Newsom with his audience. The two were carjacked, kidnapped, raped, and killed back in January 2007.
The case received media attention here locally, but had very little attention nationally until Glenn Beck picked up the story.
Tuesday, the couple's parents are flying to Dallas to interview with Glenn Beck.
They say they are excited for this opportunity.
"They become aware. They start thinking about the safety of their children. They teach them how to protect themselves in a situation like that. They more people that know about all the problems in the justice system, the better off we all are," said Gary Christian.
