Hardback. By age 30, Julie Miller was a successful executive with Southwestern Bell, yet her only "significant other" was her dog. Then, through a newspaper ad, she met Dennis Bulloch. He "looked good on paper": movie-star handsome, an MBA, and a consultant to Price Waterhouse. He came to Julie with investments, a nice house, and memberships in the St. Louis Art Museum and the Young Republicans Club. It was all true, but just the outward guise of the real man Julie was too nave to see. Unable to dominate the world of men, Dennis needed to control women. Violently. His first wife left him because he beat her. while courting Julie, Dennis dated 53 other women. With some, he performed bizarre sexual rituals. Dennis karate-chopped one woman during oral sex. Yet somehow these bizarre incidents went unnoticed by Julie. Then Julie and Dennis were secretly wed. Ten weeks later, Julie's burnt body was discovered in a garage fire. Naked, she had been strapped to a rocking chair with more than 76feet of tape during a sexual bondage ritual. Julie Miller Bulloch became the first woman known to have died in partner-sexual bondage in America. Eventually, Dennis was tried for murder. In a shocking decision, the jury convicted Dennis only of involuntary manslaughter. Outraged prosecutors charged Dennis with other crimes. In the process, the St. Louis County prosecutor himself was charged with violating the legal canon of ethics. Dennis was convicted in two additional trials. Illus. + Epilogue. 267pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. in v. sl. sunned Nr. F. dw.
