This book is an interesting read, especially if you read Anne Rule's book, Small Sacrifices. This woman asserts her innocence, but her constant excuses are transparent and non-believable. She is obviously an intelligent woman who has spent a LOT of time (24/7?) thinking about her crime and fitting each detail into a scenario that she liked better than the truth.
From the Book:
Ms. Downs gives a chilling first-hand account of how she and her children were cut down by an assailant's bullets only to find themselves further victimized by the Oregon State legal system. She reveals alleged misconduct by arresting authorities and gives detailed accounts from court transcripts to substantiate her claim of innocence. Ms. Downs tells about her escape from prison, its clandestine purpose, and her recapture following a nationwide manhunt.
At the present time, Elizabeth Diane Downs is incarcerated in the Edna Mahan Correctional Center for Women in Clinton, New Jersey.
