Michale Callahan was very courageous to write this and he should be applauded.
The circumstances of the book point to a massive cover-up of the killers of a young married couple just starting a life together in Paris. What caused the local police, sheriff's office and county prosecuter to falisify, lie and frame two innocent men that would spend over 20-years each in prison? Who actually murdered the young couple? Why did the Illinois State Police decide to muzzle a belated investigation more than a dozen years after the murders? All of these situations appears to be the result of greed, power, politics and corruption at levels and institutions that are supposed to fight against such actions.
Is the Paris business man who has been seen with large sums of cash and who owns a significant amount of the prime land and business in the CBD of Paris innocent of complicity in the double murders? Is he too clever for the local, state and federal authorities to determine his source of revenue? How can a business make $4M in profit yet only pay $150k in sales tax? Will the local community leaders take control of the community from the motorcycle gang and drug dealing that has lead to several unsolved crimes? Will Paris ever recoup from all of this negative publicity?
These, and many more questions are raised in the book.Read more ›
