Murder Most Texan
Sofort lieferbar (Download)
BeschreibungTexas has long boasted its iron fist
of the law and strict treatment of its hardest criminals. Nevertheless,
scoundrels, fiends and homicidal criminals inevitably slipped through the Lone
Star justice system despite the best efforts of even the legendary Texas
Rangers. From roadside murder to political assassinations, discover the seedy underbelly
of Texas' murderous past. In 1877, Texas saw its first high-profile murder case
with the slaying of a woman in Jefferson and the subsequent "Diamond Bessie"
trial. Over a century later, state legislator Price Daniel Jr. was shot in cold
blood by his wife at their home in Liberty. Texas true crime writer and
historian Bartee Haile unburies this collection of sixteen coldblooded killings
from Lone Star history and the dirty details that have shocked and bewildered
Texans for decades.
