The two women found dead in their beds had been executed. There was no robbery, no sexual motivation. The satanic writings and red candles found at the scene had been staged to throw investigators off track. The killer, or killers, just wanted the women dead! One of them, Betty Lou Gray, had been the primary target, while the other, a close friend, had simply been in the wrong place at the wrong time. From the beginning, the prime suspect had been Betty Lou's husband Bill. A dominating and controlling husband, he had kept his wife penniless and almost in bondage for 28 years until, finally, she'd had enough and filed for divorce. A year earlier, Bill had somehow persuaded Betty Lou to take out a $250,000 life insurance policy, naming him as the beneficiary. His wife's murder would not only make him a rich man, but would eliminate the threat of losing half of his assets in a divorce settlement. It seemed an open and shut case, but it was not to be. In this true story, author Dixie Murphy follows a trail of suspicion and intrigue, and reveals the virtually unprecedented means used to finally bring a murderer to justice.
