On a cold November morning a fourteen year old paperboy was delivering his route when he saw a brightly wrapped package on the roof of a parked car. Curiosity got the best of him and when he picked it up it exploded, killing him instantly. This is the true story of the investigation of his murder and numerous other related murders which occurred over a fifteen year span. It shows how investigators were able to link the murders to one man, a motorcycle gang enforcer. This story provides a comprehensive look into the criminal justice system and reveals not only it?s successes, but also it?s failures. From police officers to detectives to forensic experts to medical examiners to prosecuting attorneys to witnesses and even informants, everyone contributed. No one gave up! It?s the story of how all the pieces were put together, the killer identified, and the case presented for prosecution. It also shows how one elected official became the biggest stumbling block to justice for all the victims.More/less
