About the Author
Joe Kimball is the newspaper reporter who covered the Congdon murder case from the initial investigation and two sensational murder trials, to the continuing mayhem caused by Marjorie Congdon LeRoy Caldwell Hagen, even after her murder acquittal. Kimball has written hundreds of articles about the case for the Star Tribune newspaper, magazines and online.
When the Congdon Mansion opened for tours, and the guides refused to talk about the murder case (preferring instead to focus on the architecture and family legacy), he wrote his book to give perspective to the case and help those taking the tours understand the gruesome events of June 27, 1977, and the on-going tale of felonies and misdemeanors that's followed. He updates the book regularly to keep up with the continuing developments.

I did not remember hearing about the murders before she moved here. When I found out about her, I bought the books to read.
The other two books about her life have a lot more info in them & they fit her to a T.
IF everything in the books the Authors wrote is true. How did she get away with SO much??
I am afraid of her, she gets everything she wants & acts like the world owes her a living. She is cunning, manipulating, etc, etc.
Author Joe Kimball was the first Star/Tribune reporter on the scene back on the morning after the murders, and he stayed with it. He shares personal updates and anecdotes of all the characters involved. BUT this is NOT a be-all/end-all exposition of the case/trials/aftermath. For that, you should first read the also excellent for what it is Will to Murder: The True Story Behind the Crimes and Trials Surrounding the Glensheen Killings
