Paperback. Amidst the breathtaking natural beauty of Yosemite National Park 4 terrifying killings took place. For months, law enforcement officials were stumped by the deaths of 3 tourists: Carol Sund, her teenaged daughter Juli, and a family friend, Silvin Pelosso. But when they found the decapitated body and head of 26yr old naturalist Joie Ruth Armstrong, they were led to one man: 37yr old handyman Cary Stayner. Stayner was arrested at a California nudist colony and soon admitted to all 4 killings, claiming he'd had urges to kill women for 30yrs. And Cary's twisted impulses were not the only tragedy of the Stayner family. At the age of 7, his younger brother Steven was abducted by a paedophile and forced to live with the man for 7yrs, until he escaped. His story was told in a TV movie called "I Know My First Name Is Steven." Steven would ultimately die in a motorcycle crash at 24, What are the odds of one family suffering such astounding tragedies? What would compel a seemingly pleasant clean-cut man to brutally attack and gruesomely kill 4 innocent women. Did he act alone? Or was his a false confession? Illus. + Map. 239pp. mass market p/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Nr. F. with no creasing to covers.
