A sad story of a horrific murder(s). The Author drew me in to this story, I could feel the anger rise up in me as the suspect time and time again managed to avoid being prosecuted for these crimes and the relief when he finally was caught. The story is long and drawn out with lengthy courtroom procedures. A interesting read.
To be honest, this book was too violent for me, book also includes pictures.
I've read a lot of true crime books...and this is one of my favorites. This guy kills his aunt and two young nieces, after they show him the kindness of letting him live with them for a while. So of course the defense claims that his hairs being in the home mean nothing. Tough case for the prosecution to prove.
This a a true crime book.
"Run, Kirby, Run, 23-year-old Kirby Anthoney was a troubled drifter who had turned to his uncle, John Newman, Nanacy's husband. But little did John know that the nephew he took in was a murderous sociopath capable of slaughtering his beloved wife and children while he was away on business." (taken from the back cover)
On March 15th,1987, police in Anchorage,Alaska arrived at a horrific scene of carnage.In a modest downtown apartment,they found Nancy Newmans brutally beaten corpse sprawled across her bed.In another room were the bodies of her eight year olddaughter,Melissa,and her three year old daughtewr,Angie,whose throat was slit from ear to ear.Both Nancy and Melissa had been sexually assaulted.
On March 15th, 1987 in Anchorage, Alaska a violent, hideous act was commented by a 23-year-old sociopath. His victims were his own Aunt and two very young nieces.
This is a trial book. It does not go word for word of the trial but very close. Very little background of the victims, the victims Husband/Father or of the sicko who commented the crime. What background was given, painted a picture of a family trying help and deal with a troubled sociopath. Little did they know taking him in would end the lives of three people.
This is not for everyone, it is very graphic at times with details of the crime scenes.
