About The Crime of the Century

When the dismembered bodies of two missing teens were pulled from the local river, the horrified residents of Rolling Hills, a hamlet in southeastern Ohio, dubbed the murders "the crime of the century." This is a detailed account of finding justice for the murder victims as well as the story of one man’s perseverance to gain his freedom from death row.

When did you write The Crime of the Century?

It took two years to research and write this true crime that happened in my hometown of Logan, Ohio.

What was the spark that gave you the story idea?

The actual crime. It was a 1982 case that sent an innocent man to prison for 7 years, with 4 of that on death row. It took nearly 30 years to find the actual murderer. The man who did the actual killing was subsequently sentenced to 28 years to life for each murder, to be served concurrently. He will be eligible for parole at the age of seventy-nine.

Why do readers buy The Crime of the Century?

Because it is a true crime. This actually happened.
