Interesting book. I had seen this case in the news recently, so wanted to read the book. David Camm was convicted in 2002 of killing his wife, son and daughter. He was sentenced to 195 years in prision. In August of 2004 his conviction was overturned and he was scheduled to be re-tried. The book was published before the outcome of his second trial so I went on-line to find the outcome. I was pleased to learn that David Camm was convicted for the second time earlier this month - March, 2006. The sentencing is set for the end of this month. Terrible tragedy, especially when two innocent children were involved.
Really enjoyable and it leaves you wondering whether the accused was guilty or not. I immediately checked out the second trial online!
One of the most fascinating true crime books I have read. A real who-done-it from start to finish. A state trooper was convicted of murdering his family,based mainly on blood spatter evidence. Four years later, his guilty verdict was overturned. Cold case research then uncovered an alleged co-conspirator in the crime and a new trial is set to begin in August 2005. I will be very interested in following up on this case.
Was left with nagging suspicion that this there is more & case is not over! Interesting info on the net.
great book. i enjoyed it so much i loande it to a friend she loved it to and now it is back to repoist
I usually read good books in one sitting, yet I've had this for a while,and still not finished it. I 'm interested in the facts of the case, but the book has not held my attention.
Would recommend for any True Crime genre fan.
my fave true crime so far
This was a twisted book and was very hard to put down once I started it....
Amazing to see what happens in "normal" families.
Did he or didn't he???? He came home to find his wife, son and daughter murdered...did he do it? You will decide for your self! Very good book and it holds your attention!
The perfect husband a state trooper kills his family.
He was the perfect family man. Former State trooper David Camm was a dedicated and respected public servant. He had a reputation for being an honest,gentle and concientious man, who was also an ideal husband to his lovely wife, Kim, and a devoted father to two beautiful chiildren, Jill, aged five, and seven year old Brad The Camms lived the American Dream. Everything seemed so wholesome behind their suburban white picket fence. But could he have murdered his own???? On September 20, 2000, accordidng to prosecutors, David Camm cornered his family in the garage of their New Albany Indiana, home, shot Kim to death. then turned the gun on his terrified children and blew them away. Three days later, he was arrested. Was David Camm the victim of unspeakable tragedy, railroaded by an unfair system?Or was he a cold Hearted murderer?
Very good TC book. Mind-blowing that this guy - a cop! - could kill his own children.
I read true crime books for the attorney & courtroom action.
I rated this book an 8 for entertainment value & a 7 for attorney & courtroom action.
