Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
In The Hands Of A Sadist…
First, he bound and beat his girlfriend, a 43-year-old librarian. Then he went after her teenaged daughter-warning her, "Scream and I will kill you both"-before knocking her unconscious. When the teenager awoke, he proceded to rape her. And in a final horrifying act of depravity, he forced the girl to watch as he slit her mother’s throat. But the killing didn’t stop there...
In The Crosshairs Of A Killer…
Stephen Stanko was described as "a perfect gentleman" who "seemed so pleasant…and so normal." But behind Stanko’s mild-mannered appearance, round spectacles, and quiet intelligence was a coldblooded ex-convict who kept a grisly scrapbook on serial killers-and convinced everyone he was a nice guy-until he killed and killed again.
On The Trail Of A Psycho…
A well-orchestrated manhunt caught up with Stanko, who tried to get away with his crimes by pleading insanity. But the jury saw through his ruse and the ruthless killer was sentenced to death.

A PRETTY YOUNG WOMAN . . .
Denise Amber Lee was a 21-year-old happily married mother of two little boys. She had her whole life ahead of her…until an intruder broke into her Florida home. Within a few short hours she was savagely terrorized, murdered, and buried naked in a shallow grave near a desolate swamp.
A DEPRAVED KILLER . . .
Michael King, a 38-year-old out-of-work plumber, was a ticking time bomb. For years, neighbors called the police on King, complaining that, among other things, he'd thrown battery acid in their pool and slashed their tires. Denise’s fate was far worse. In a horrifying act of cruelty, King bound her with duct tape, raped her repeatedly, then shot her dead.
A TRAGIC FAILURE. . .
Incredibly, Denise managed to call 911 twice during her abduction. Eyewitnesses and her distraught husband also called, but a slow, inefficient system tragically failed her. As a result, Florida passed the Denise Lee Law, setting voluntary standards for 911 systems. King was sentenced to death. But for Denise and her loving family, it was too late.

Die For Love
Sarah Ludemann was new to love. The Pinellas, Florida, 17-year old was a late bloomer. When she fell for a boy she was blind to the world of sex, drugs and drama swirling around her. Soon, Sarah had a bitter enemy in 18-year-old waitress Rachel Wade; both girls were head-over-heels with a cocky two-timer named Joshua Camacho. On a warm spring night, their passions erupted into violence. A knife flashed under the streetlights. When the fight was over one girl was dead and the other charged with murder. In an emotion-packed courtroom the whole story took shape--a troubling tale of conflicting lives, tangled sexual affairs, and the high price of having the right feelings for the wrong guy. . .

the kidnapper had a cheaper than cheap cell phone, one that was practically disposable, and it was not equipped with a GPS, which would enable police to track it to a precise location. All they had to sleuth with were the cell phone towers that handled the call. They knew she was close by. Precisely where remained a mystery. The name Michael Lee King meant nothing to either Denise’s father or husband. Nate was nearly overwhelmed by the randomness of the abduction. They didn’t know him at all,
her?” “No.” “What else, if anything, did you do?” “Around this time, I recall putting out a BOLO about the green Camaro.” “Who directed you to do that?” “I don’t remember.” Captain Roguska checked Kallestad’s story and subsequent investigation, in the form of the radio traffic log. It revealed that Kallestad had been contacted by Sergeant Floyd Davis to put out a BOLO to all units regarding the green Camaro. The radio log showed that Kallestad did as she was told, and the BOLO went out at
she refused to do any housecleaning?” “Yeah, but Mike dealt with it. He loved her.” Arend then shifted the subject back to the sledding accident, an incident he clearly believed had been—at the very least—exaggerated. There weren’t even medical records to corroborate that it had occurred. Yes, Michael hit at forty to forty-five miles per hour; yes, the doctor said there was nothing they could do but ice it and keep him from sleeping. “Did they tell you what to do if Mike did slip into a coma?”
“That’s what I don’t understand. If they were saying those things, then why wouldn’t they tell their daughter?” “They did tell her,” Lynch said, his voice rising with excitement. “Then why wouldn’t Sarah tell me?” Joshua asked. “Because she loved you. Her parents tolerated you.” “No parent would tolerate their child getting played on.” “Unfortunately, they did—and it was the same thing with Rachel’s parents. They are devastated and destroyed as well. Same thing. So you are telling me that
that when it came to intoxicants, “she had nothing. Nothing at all.” Dr. Thogmartin was excused. “What says the state?” Judge Bulone asked. “Your Honor, at this time the state rests,” Hanewicz said. Judge Bulone noted that some legal issues needed to be discussed, with the jury out of the room, so he would give the jurors an extra-long lunch break. With the jury gone, the subject turned to Joshua. “As far as Mr. Camacho is concerned,” Judge Bulone said, “it is my understanding that you
