A terrified scream forever shattered the quiet calm of a Utah neighborhood as a distraught husband pulled is beloved wife from the backyard fishpond he had recently constructed. At first glance, police had no reason to be suspicious regarding Pamela Mead's death. Her husband David was obviously suffering from the loss and no evidence immediately pointed to foul play. However, in the days and weeks that followed, suspicions were steadily aroused. Women who claimed to have relationships with David contacted police with troubling stories. David's cousin, a recovering drug addict, surfaced to recount a shocking proposal made shortly before Pamela's death. An unusually large life-insurance policy was purchased mere months before the so-called accident. And when police returned to the Mead household to gather more evidence, the fishpond where David Mead found his departed wife was gone.

Written by the prosecutor of the criminal trial, Death in a Fish Pond is the chilling detailed account of the perfect husband, the murder, and the two trials to bring the killer to justice.
