Question of Murder by Cyril H. Wecht
Book DescriptionNo one has performed more autopsies in high-profile cases than Dr Cyril Wecht. During the past four decades, he has dissected over 16,000 bodies to determine how and why they died. He has testified in hundreds of trials and exhumed dozens of corpses. He's investigated the deaths of presidents and princes, coal miners and Hollywood stars. From the tragic homicides of Laci Peterson and Nicole Brown Simpson to the mysteries that surround the deaths of Jon Benet Ramsey and Natalee Hollaway, CNN, MSNBC, FOX News, the "New York Times", and scores of other publications constantly call upon Dr Wecht to provide his expert analysis.In this new book, Dr Wecht and true-crime journalist Dawna Kaufmann present five fascinating mysteries: Who or what killed Anna Nicole Smith's young son, Daniel? Who or what killed Anna Nicole Smith? Was her son's death associated with her own demise just months later? Dr Wecht considers whether someone attempted to get one or both of them out of the way. Who killed twelve-year-old Stephanie Crowe, who was found stabbed to death in the hallway of her home? Dr Wecht's acumen helped straighten out a baffling whodunit that had left local law enforcement going down the wrong path. Should David Westerfield be on death row for the murder of his seven-year-old neighbour, Danielle van Dam? What were the mistakes and victories in that dramatic trial? During the horrific aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, did medical professionals at a distinguished New Orleans hospital purposely inject elderly patients with heart-stopping medications? What does the evidence say?The combined expertise of one of the leading forensic pathologists in the world and an accomplished true-crime journalist come together in this riveting page-turner filled with many details about these notable cases available nowhere else.
