known for his violent temper, drug abuse and sex addiction, he'd been divorced twice, but swore he'd change for teresa. and he said he'd tried, until he caught her allegedly high on coke, sexually abusing their infant son. driven beyond a father's rage. dr. taylor testified to beating his young wife to death in their home, then disposing of her body. convicted one year later of first degree murder, he was sentenced to thirty years in prison.
A good read, however, there are many references to other criminal cases for comparison. A crime buff would enjoy this, but the casual reader may not. More pictures for reference would have been interesting, but again, all in all, a good read. I would recommend it.
The scary part is nobody still really knows the truth. I think questions went unanswered, was she really abusing the baby, why was there vasaline all over her, and what really happened in mexico?
This is an interesting true crime book. In this case, what went on behind the facade of an attractive, well educated, couple who 'had it all' is brought out for us to wonder at. A tragedy.
the chilling true story of the New Jersey dentist who always treated his wife with love- until he killed her in a rage of passion.
A very good book. But made me very angry!
Reasonably well-written, coherent, good sources. I would have liked to hear more about Teresa (the victim-wife) and her values & previous life. We seemed to return repeatedly to the incident of abuse or assault in Mexico without resolving what the author thought. Overall this was simply an average crime book, but about an interesting crime!
