Hardback. Marilys Wohlenhaus was an animated, energetc 18yr. old girl. Then one afternoon everything changed. She should have been safe working at the town restaurant. She should have been safe in her own home. She should still be alive today. But in May 1979, Marilys became the victim in every parent's most horrific nightmare. At once a gripping story and an in-depth look at the grief of losing a child. This book relates the true account of a serial killer, Joseph Ture Jr. who slipped past the law again and again during a 3yr. long crime spree. It was Ture who brutally murdered Marilys Wohlenhaus in her own home. The author, the husband of Marilys's mother, reconstructs the murder and the 17yr. investigation that led to the capture and conviction of Ture, allowing the reader to explore the horrific, obsession, dediction and finally the peace that he and his wife experienced in the search for and eventual conviction of her daughter's killer. The author recounts how Marilys's case was solved through the efforts of the victim's tenacious family, supportive news media, and persistent investigators, and gives a terrifying sense of the unimaginable grief and despair in the hearts of those who lose a child, yet he also shares his intensely personal exploration of the resilience and power within the human spirit. 193pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. in f. dw.
