David and Pamela Mead had the perfect marriage. David ran the family business, he and his wife shared love and laughter and the neighborhood envied the young, charismatic couple. Then, without warning, tragedy left a family broken and a town in shock. When David Mead found his wife floating facedown in their backyard fishpond in Salt Lake City, Utah, his tormented cries reverberated through his quiet neighborhood. Family and friends mourned the unexpected death of a well-loved peer. They supported the grieving widower as he struggled to gather the broken pieces of his life. They never suspected that David Mead was a killer. However, David's impeccable faade began to wear thin in the days following Pamela Mead's death. Past lovers emerged with ominous secrets. A troubled cousin disclosed an astonishing proposal. An unusually large life insurance policy was purchased months before Pamela's death. The fatal fishpond was dismantled in the shroud of night. Was the perfect husband really the perfect killer? In "Death in a Fishpond, prosecutor Howard R. Lemcke takes true-crime lovers on a journey that begins in a nondescript suburban backyard in 1994 and ends with a riveting courtroom battle in 2001. Along the way, the reader comes face to face with a cold-blooded killer, forced to consider the possibility that he could slip through the cracks of our legal system without punishment for his heinous crimes.
