Let me know if you need any Oakland County Child Killer links, I have lots. One of my pet cases, you know. I agree, it's so depressing. I think it is even more so because we remember it so vividly and it had an impact on our lives at a very impressionable age. I truly think that case had a definite influence on our true crime interests. It is so frustrating to read about tips being ignored, and then that crazy lady who may be making all tipsters look bad. (Yeah, I'm looking at you Helen - you and your OTIS file) She has sparked a lot of internet interest in the case though, and has more people talking, so that is good. I'm very disapointed the Cold Serial OCCK board has had so little happening, it used to be a great source of information and speculation.

I keep forgetting to send you the links, but I did finally find some information about the serial killer that went to Howell High with my Mom. If I can find them real quick I will email them to you now, before I forget again.

As always, yours in murder and mayhem.

  • Edward Ugel: Money For Nothing
    Subtitled, One Man's Journey Through The Dark Side Of Lottery Millions. (****)
  • Susan Braudy: This Crazy Thing Called Love
    The true story behind the Billy Woodward shooting, the case on which Dominick Dunne based his novel, The Two Mrs. Grenvilles. (*****)

    A collection of lyrical short stories from Annie Proulx that contains Brokeback Mountain among other gems. (****)
  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)

    Fascinating look at women journalists at the front during WWII. (****)
  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)

    Excellent telling of the Bart Corbin cases. (****)
