A Checklist for Murder
The Peernocks cast the impression of being a very well-to-do and content family evenl after the separation of Richard and his wife. But madness was contained inside their house and one night Richard Peemock came to kill his wife and daughter, brutally beating them, force feeding them alcohol and placing them together in a car which he let drive into a wall so that it would seem like a drunk driving accident.
What Richard Peernock didn't forsee was his daughter's survival and her willingness for the first time to describe, in detail, her father's psychosis and his manipulative personality.
Once a successful whistleblower, Peernock denied his involvement in the murder, claiming a conspiracy against him on all levels. Confounding the justice system, hiring and firing lawyers, representing himself, saying everyone was against him. After numerous tense trials, Peernock was finally sentenced to life in prison, though those close to him still live in fear.
