Softcover. The true crime saga of the killing of Marcia Good, a vivacious 40yr. old widowed mother of 3, by her second husband Richard Bennett, who viewed her modest estate as a cash-cow. At first, Bennett was able to convince authorities and even Marcia's relatives that her drowning death was a tragic fishing accident in a fall from a partialy built bridge over the Arkansas River on a cold, windy, rainy night. It would be another 17yrs. before her case was closed officially when Bennett died in prison while serving a lfe sentence for first degree murder. He might have got away completely without the efforts of Marcia's brother-in-law, Dr. Lowell Good, who hired his own investigators, and her nephew, David Zoll, who successfully fought a civil wrongful death suit against Bennett. It also took the tenacious work of Arkansas State Police Investigator Doug Stephens, who worked with Dr. Good and Zoll, and compiled the evidence that finally resulted in successful criminal prosecution. Even at that, it took 3 murder convictions before Bennett went to prison because the Arkansas Supreme Court reversed the first two jury verdicts. 431pp. 8vo. softcover. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Nr. F.
