Circus! From Rome to Ringling
THEY KNEW HE WAS OUT THEREHe took his time. He watched his victims and chose carefully. Then he struck-each attack more brutal than the last. By the time detectives arrived, all they found were gruesome crime scenes of bloodied, brutalized bodies . . .THEY KNEW HE WOULD STRIKE AGAINFor more than ten years in South Louisiana the killings went on. Task forces were formed. The killer even spent time in jail. But that wouldn't stop the bloodshed. One victim was stabbed with a screwdriver 83 times . . .BUT THEY COULDN'T STOP HIM-UNTIL IT WAS TOO LATEHe was a father. A husband. A co-worker. A killer. Derrick Todd Lee was ultimately convicted of two savage murders and tied to at least seven more. From the slender trace of DNA that finally nabbed him to the courageous prosecutors who took him down in court, this is the shocking story of a homicidal maniac hiding in plain sight-and an evil that could never be washed away . . .Includes 16 pages of shocking photographs
