Book excerpt: The true crime author of Body of Proof investigates the case of an Iowa woman charged with murder for killing her abusive husband. Scott and Dixie Shanahan lived in a gray ranch along Third Avenue in the sleepy Midwestern town of Defiance, Iowa. With a population of less than 400, everyone in Defiance knew the home for its recurring episodes of screaming, mayhem, and horrific domestic violence. Then one day, Scott Shanahan was gone. Some thought the abusive husband had packed his bags and left town. After months went by with still no sign of the volatile wife beater, people began to ask questions. But what really happened to him was so shocking that even long-time law enforcement officials were aghast by the sight and awful smell. When Dixie was arrested for Scott’s murder, she made a credible claim of self-defense. But how did she manage to live with her husband’s rotting body inside her master bedroom for fourteen months? In Dixie’s Last Stand, investigative journalist John Ferak explores a tragic tale of marital abuse to ask: did Dixie Shanahan deserve to be convicted of murder?
Download or read Failure of Justice PDF, written by John Ferak and published by WildBlue Press. This book was released on 2016-05-19 with total page 487 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “A chilling piece of journalism” from the bestselling author of Wrecking Crew: Demolishing the Case Against Steven Avery (Ron Franscell , author of Alice & Gerald). In this thrilling true crime book, bestselling and award-winning author John Ferak explores the murder, investigation, trial, conviction and eventual exoneration—the largest such ever in the United States—of the Beatrice 6. On February 5, 1985, one of the coldest nights on record, Beatrice, Nebraska widow Helen Wilson was murdered inside her second-floor apartment. The news of six arrests was absolutely stunning to the locals in this easy-going, blue-collar community of 12,000 residents. But why were six loosely connected misfits who lived as far away as Alabama, Colorado and North Carolina being linked to the rape and murder of a beloved small-town widow? After all six of the condemned were convicted of murder and sent away to prison for the ghastly crime, the town moved on, convinced that justice was served. For more than twenty-five years, the Beatrice 6 rotted in prison, until the unthinkable occurred in 2008 . . . In Failure of Justice, John Ferak delivers a “riveting account . . . [of] an overzealous police investigation that generated false confessions and false evidence. The unbelievable story of the Beatrice 6 provides a wake-up call at a time when serious wrongful convictions continue to come to light with disturbing frequency” (Brandon L. Garrett, Justice Thurgood Marshall Distinguished Professor of Law, University of Virginia School of Law). “One of the most bizarre stories I’ve ever heard of.”—Burl Barer, Edgar Award-winning true-crime author, host of Outlaw radio’s True Crime Uncensored

In Wrecking Crew, Ferak lays out high-profile lawyer Kathleen Zellner’s post-conviction strategy to free Avery. “Whatever you thought you believed about this infamous case, get ready to change your mind or be more convinced than ever . . . Fascinating.” —Steve Jackson, New York Times bestselling author My Brother’s Keeper: The moment he found out his brother Gary was missing and presumed dead, Ted Kergan launched a relentless effort to bring two suspected killers to justice and find Gary’s body. Little did he know his quest would consume a fortune and take thirty years to reach its dramatic conclusion. An International Book Awards Finalist! “A thirty-year search for the truth . . . a story of persistence, determination, and deep brotherly love.” —Denise Wallace, author of Daddy’s Little Secret Summary Execution: On June 1, 1981, two young activists, Silme Domingo and Gene Viernes, were murdered in Seattle in what was made to appear like a gang slaying. But the victims’ families and friends suspected they were considered a threat to Philippines dictator Ferdinand Marcos and his regime’s relationship to the United States. “Remarkable . . . The story has so many twists—as well as amazing turns—that prove the point that conspiracy theories aren’t necessarily fiction.” —Eric Nalder, Pulitzer Prize–winning investigative journalist
Download or read Wrecking Crew PDF, written by John Ferak and published by WildBlue Press. This book was released on 2018-11-20 with total page 475 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A “fascinating” deep dive into the Making a Murderer case. “Get ready to change your mind or be more convinced than ever”(Steve Jackson, New York Times bestselling author). In 2016-17, while working for the USA Today Network’s Wisconsin Investigative Team, author John Ferak wrote dozens of articles examining the murder case again Steven Avery, who had already beat one wrongful conviction only to be charged with the murder of Teresa Halbach in 2005. The case became the wildly successful Netflix Making A Murderer documentary. In Wrecking Crew: Demolishing the Case Against Steven Avery, Ferak lays out in exacting detail the post-conviction strategy of Kathleen Zellner, the high-profile, high-octane lawyer, to free Avery. To write this book, Zellner, perhaps America’s most successful wrongful conviction attorney, gave Ferak unique access to the exhaustive pro bono efforts she and her small suburban Chicago law firm dedicated for a man she believes to be a victim of an unscrupulous justice system in Manitowoc County. “If you’re planning to binge-watch Making a Murderer 2 over the holidays, order John Ferak’s new book Wrecking Crew, too. Definitive chronicle of criminal justice corruption in Manitowoc County.”—Michelle Malkin, host of Michelle Malkin Investigates on CRTV

Download or read Unsolved Civil Rights Murder Cases 1934 1970 PDF, written by Michael Newton and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2016-01-28 with total page 312 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Emmett Till Unsolved Civil Rights Crime Act of 2007 called for review and reinvestigation of “violations of criminal civil rights statutes that occurred not later than December 31, 1969, and resulted in a death.” The U.S. Attorney General’s review observed that date, while examining cases from 1936 (a date not specified in the Till Act) onward. In selecting violations for review, certain “headline” cases were included while others meeting the same criteria were not considered. This first full-length survey of American civil rights “cold cases” examines unsolved racially motivated murders over nearly four decades, beginning in 1934. The author covers all cases reviewed by the federal government to date, as well as a larger number of cases that were ignored without official explanation.

She’ll be home in plenty of time to bake the Thanksgiving pies with Elsa and settle into the holiday season back in Albuquerque. Or not. From the get-go, the trip is fraught with problems. Traffic is horrible, weather is moving in, and the only motel they can get into is a dump. Sophie is a 13-year-old with attitude, challenging Charlie to keep her cool at every step. Basically, everything that can go wrong, does go wrong, and the quick job turns into a stress-filled trip. And then there’s a murder. The girl’s mother is a no-show and the dead guy is mom’s boyfriend, leaving Charlie to figure out what she’ll do with this obstinate teen. Things brighten up when Charlie meets a group of five Arizona women who have a bit of experience at the mystery game themselves. The Heist Ladies are on a case with tentacles that overlap with Charlie’s.

Download or read Associated Press Coverage of a Major Disaster PDF, written by Thomas Fensch and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2015-07-16 with total page 458 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Originally published in 1989. This diary of a news event looks at how the reporting happened as spread by the news wire system of the Associated Press service in America. Analysing the flow of information in this detailed way, this book presents how a major disaster, a fast-moving story with considerable spin, was fed out to the press via the Dallas bureau in 1988. Introductory chapters outline the workings of a press bureau office during a major story and present interview sections with key reporters on the story about how their role unfolded. Sidebar commentary alongside the reproductions of the news wires, organised by date and time, adds interesting discussion throughout the book, while a conclusion evaluates the coverage of the story. The Appendices include reproductions of Texas newspapers’ resulting pages about the crash. This is a fascinating case-study of the dissemination of news date before the internet, compiled at a time when computers were just large enough to retain in memory all stories relating to event ‘X’ in order for this kind of analysis to be attempted.

Download or read The American Film Institute Catalog of Motion Pictures Produced in the United States PDF, written by Elias Savada and published by New York : R. R. Bowker. This book was released on 1971 with total page 1136 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The American Film Institute Catalog has won great praise for its comprehensiveness, reliability, and utility. These volumes are an essential purchase for every library, and individual researchers will also find them indispensable. This newest AFI volume contains over 4,300 entries for feature-length films produced in the United States in the 1940s. The decade was an important and transitional one for filmmakers. Societal changes from the war years were reflected in films, and in the late 1940s the rise of television, the Hollywood blacklist, and the breakup of studio-owned theater chains greatly affected the number and types of films produced. Among films newly viewed for the book are such well-known classics as Citizen Kane, The Best Years of Our Lives, and Casablanca, along with less heralded films such as Fighting Men of the Plains and The Strange Death of Adolf Hitler. Entries include complete cast and crew credits, extensive plot summaries, and notes and sources for further study. A large accompanying volume provides access to the films through nine separate indexes, including personal and corporate names, subjects, and genres.
