In 1983, her kidnapping and brutal murder erupted into public outrage with citizens demanding justice--but authorities couldnt catch the killer. Nearly a year later, as Election Day loomed, the investigators, pressured by local politicians, mishandled and misrepresented forensic evidence to make an arrest at last--only they had the wrong men. The trial, tow subsequent appeals and two retrials evolved into a savage war between prosecutors and attorneys, with the courts hounded by critics who strongly believe that two men had been railroaded and sent to Death Row while a vicious murderer remained unpunished for the crime. This riveting, disturbing account shows how an alliance of ambitious men presented a case that distorted the truth, and, when faced with exposure after obtaining confession of the real killer, covered up their mistakes.
