Paperback. The sensational story of Tim and Todd Nicholson - young, good-looking, and rich - and a celebrated murder case steeped in the strange phenomenon of identical twinship - one of the closest of all human relationships. Then why - and how - did Timothy Nicholson kill his identical twin brother Todd on December 7, 1964, in Temple City, California. Both boys were 22. Was the killing accidental? In self-defence? Premeditated? What were the motives? Seldom does a writer about a celebrated murder case have full access to the mind of the killer. In this book, the accused tells the author about his incredible life. How the twins were abandoned by their playboy father - heir to the Armour meatpacking and Pullman car fortunes. How their hard-drinking rejecting mother could not distinguish one from the other and called them both Tim-Todd; of their early awareness of sex and money. This story of Timothy's scandalous trial reveals their strange love-hate relationship, how intensely competitive they were in business and sex (often assuming the other's identity to sleep with girls), and how they were completely unable to get along with - or without - one another. Illus. 246pp. mass market p/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Creased and worn covers. G+
