Naifeh, Steven and Gregory White Smith. Final Justice: The True Story of the Richest Man Ever Tried for Murder (1993)*****

Recommends it for: Texans
The subtitle of this story is "The True Story of the Richest Man Ever Tried for Murder," and what a sad, debauched tale it is.

I think that Cullen Davis was paying some of the jury members to get away with murder. How can someone not convict this guy of murder? who cares about what Priscilla did. A little girl was murdered.
