Although he did not know the victims, Sonny Long is deeply affected by the murders. The subtitle of the book reads: "A Journalist's Journey Toward Justice," and Long is determined that the case should stay active until the killer/killers are found, tried and punished. He stays in constant touch with everyone involved, quoting at length the opinions and actions of friends, foes, cops, and DAs.
This is the sort of stuff that daytime TV thrives on, so the murders are duly accorded that brief national notoriety. More surprisingly--keeping in mind that this all began in the early '90s--a group of the murdered woman's friends become very active on a web site ostensibly established as a forum to obtain information related to the crime (and, incidentally, to trash both those who are agin and with their cause). Long prints it all, including letters from one of his most articulate pen-pals, the mother of the prime suspect, who is not deterred from continuing her correspondence simply because she is in the pen for having murdered her husband. The ladies of Atlanta, TX are as interesting a group of housewives as you're going to find on any reality show.Read more ›
