    Such a sad story When I first started reading this book I was under the impression that it had never been solved, but the authors end it with a confession As much as I hope the allegations are false, there could be some truth to it and it might bring some closure to this horrific mystery RIP Lawson Family

    Let me tell you about this book This book is basically every library s cryptid I work in a library about 15min from Walnut Cove, NC where the murders happened and everyone and their grandma wants to read this book The only problem is, the cheapest copy is 125 onas of May 2020 That means no library in their right mind is going to let you take this book from the building My library s copy has been checked out since 1999 We re never getting that back.So how did I get a copy of it Let me tell you about this book This book is basically every library s cryptid I work in a library about 15min from Walnut Cove, NC where the murders happened and everyone and their grandma wants to read this book The only problem is, the cheapest copy is 125 onas of May 2020 That means no library in their right mind is going to let you take this book from the building My library s copy has been checked out since 1999 We re never getting that back.So how did I get a copy of it Well, we re closed to the public for COVID 19, which means there s no public coming to visit our buildings to read our reference, in library use only items And the library I live near, in the same county system as the one I work in, has a reference copy of this book So I called em up and said pretty please can I borrow this I give you permission to storm my house if something happens So, after sending a couple of photos of my cats being cute, the adult services librarian there let me take it home Now, I have to say, I first heard of this murder on the My Favorite Murder podcast, which I think did a better job of telling the story Honestly It s probably a good thing this book can t be widely read because it s very much a 1990s small press, small town book The research isn t detailed and the editorializing feels like a stay safe, kids documentary made in the late 80s, early 90s It s not great But I had to find that out for myself, so I m writing this now to tell you don t bother worrying if you re interested in this story but can t get a copy of the book It s not worth 126.Listen to Episode 142 Live at the Durham Performing Arts Center for all the info you need and, you know what, if you really want to read the book, check your local library The book is super short and quick to read because it s easy to skip all the detail about tobacco farming practices of the 1920s, if the library has a copy in their collection, they d be happy to let you read it in the safety of their building, in exchange for something you won t leave behind

    A true crime story that really kept my interest, as it happened in my neck of the woods, in North Carolina Very sad.

    This is really a good book Very CREEPY and SAD, but interesting because it talks about the emotional state of the killer.
