The Real Life Fugitive
Sam Sheppard and the Original Trial of the Century
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
The crime was unthinkable: a respected doctor is convicted of brutally murdering his pregnant wife. The trial that followed was a media circus--one often compared to the O.J. Simpson trial. The popularity of the case would go on to be one of the alleged inspirations of the TV show "The Fugitive" (and later the Harrison Ford movie of the same name)—something the creators deny, but fans insist is true.
This book proves that truth is always more interesting than fiction. It looks at the murder, the suspects, and the ultimate outcome of one of the most notorious murders of all time.
