House of Secrets
On an October night in 1993, at one of the campgrounds dotting Florida's Gulf Coast, ex-con Eddie Lee Sexton told his daughter Pixie to silence her crying baby. Incredibly, the young mother smothered the helpless infent, stuffed its tiny corpse into a gym bag, and then buried it in a shallow grave, less than a moth later. Eddie Lee ordered his son Willte to strangle the baby's bereaved dad during a family picnic. Sexton was priming his third victim when the FBI and Florida Cops finally caught up with him. Authorities soon learned that these kittings were the final heinous acts of a sadistic, Incestuous monster whose reign of psychological and sexual violence had began back in Ohio. For years, Eddie Lee whipped his children daily, raped his daughters, abused his sons and even fathered three inbred Sexton babies. But in early 1992, after teenaged Michelte Sexton's courageous flight to authorities, the waits of silence surrounding this house of horrors crumbled. By 1995, Sexton would be sitting on Florida's death row. House Of Secrets is a story of tragedy and dark horrors. With terrifying detail, Lowell Cauffel takes us into a shocking world of abuse, incest and family murder-a world ruled by a psychopeth whose ability to manipulate his children produced one of the most sensational cases in true crime history.
