Synopsis

In The Hands Of A Sadist…

First, he bound and beat his girlfriend, a 43-year-old librarian. Then he went after her teenaged daughter-warning her, "Scream and I will kill you both”-before knocking her unconscious. When the teenager awoke, he proceded to rape her. And in a final horrifying act of depravity, he forced the girl to watch as he slit her mothers throat. But the killing didnt stop there...

In The Crosshairs Of A Killer…

Stephen Stanko was described as "a perfect gentleman” who "seemed so pleasant…and so normal.” But behind Stankos mild-mannered appearance, round spectacles, and quiet intelligence was a coldblooded ex-convict who kept a grisly scrapbook on serial killers-and convinced everyone he was a nice guy-until he killed and killed again.

On The Trail Of A Psycho…

A well-orchestrated manhunt caught up with Stanko, who tried to get away with his crimes by pleading insanity. But the jury saw through his ruse and the ruthless killer was sentenced to death.

A PRETTY YOUNG WOMAN . . .

Denise Amber Lee was a 21-year-old happily married mother of two little boys. She had her whole life ahead of her…until an intruder broke into her Florida home. Within a few short hours she was savagely terrorized, murdered, and buried naked in a shallow grave near a desolate swamp.

A DEPRAVED KILLER . . .

Michael King, a 38-year-old out-of-work plumber, was a ticking time bomb. For years, neighbors called the police on King, complaining that, among other things, he'd thrown battery acid in their pool and slashed their tires. Denises fate was far worse. In a horrifying act of cruelty, King bound her with duct tape, raped her repeatedly, then shot her dead.

A TRAGIC FAILURE. . .

Incredibly, Denise managed to call 911 twice during her abduction. Eyewitnesses and her distraught husband also called, but a slow, inefficient system tragically failed her. As a result, Florida passed the Denise Lee Law, setting voluntary standards for 911 systems. King was sentenced to death. But for Denise and her loving family, it was too late.

Difficult to put down. . .. This is one that I highly recommend. --True Crime Book Reviews on Watch Mommy Die

Die For Love

Sarah Ludemann was new to love. The Pinellas, Florida, 17-year old was a late bloomer. When she fell for a boy she was blind to the world of sex, drugs and drama swirling around her. Soon, Sarah had a bitter enemy in 18-year-old waitress Rachel Wade;both girls were head-over-heels with a cocky two-timer named Joshua Camacho. On a warm spring night, their passions erupted into violence. A knife flashed under the streetlights. When the fight was over one girl was dead and the other charged with murder. In an emotion-packed courtroom the whole story took shape--a troubling tale of conflicting lives, tangled sexual affairs, and the high price of having the right feelings for the wrong guy. . .

True crime at it's best

Three true crime stories told through the courts. Each as scary as the other. The last being, in many opinion, the worst of all... Social media playing a major part to a fatal attack goes to show just how sinister our world can become for today's teenagers if we are not careful.
