The Almost Perfect Murder of Anchorwoman Diane Newton King

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

A grisly murder upends life in a charming midwestern hamlet

Battle Creek, Michigan, is famous as the birthplace of breakfast cereal, and the nearby suburb of Marshall is as wholesome as shredded wheat. Well-known for its colorful Victorian mansions, this stately slice of nineteenth-century Americana became infamous on a frigid night in February of 1991. Newscaster Diane Newton King was stepping out of her car, her children strapped into the backseat, when a sniper’s bullet cut her down. The police assumed that the killer was her stalker—a crazed fan who had been terrorizing King for weeks. But as their investigation ground to a standstill, the police turned to another suspect—one much closer to home.
 
In this gripping retelling of the crime and its aftermath, journalist Lowell Cauffiel re-creates the atmosphere of terror that marked King’s last days, giving us a story of celebrity, obsession, and what it means to kill.

“A true crime thriller.” —Jonathan Kellerman
 
“A must-read.” —Jack Olsen, author of Last Man Standing
 
“A taut police procedural and a fascinating psychological study of a nonrepentant murderer.” —Library Journal

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 04, 1994 – Diane King, morning anchor at WUHQ-TV in Battle Creek, Mich., was fatally shot on February 9, 1991, in the driveway of her home. News of the murder elicited odd reactions: some acquaintances said they were not surprised; others lamented the death of a thoughtful friend. When, after inept local police work, the Michigan State Police began to focus on Brad, Diane's husband, a former cop who was now a professor of criminal justice at Western Michigan University, there was a parallel reaction: some assumed he had killed his wife, others considered him incapable of violence. Brad was prosecuted and sentenced to life on what the author suggests was circumstantial evidence. But what interests Cauffiel ( Masquerade ) most is unraveling the personality of Brad, who is portrayed as resentful of living in the shadow of a celebrity wife and a dominating woman.
