Virginia Brooks was missing for a month before her body was found. Was a serial killer responsible? The two little Martin sisters were murdered in 1924, and two more sisters in 1937, the Everett sisters along with their friend Jeanette Stephens. This third book is a detailed report that puts together the facts found at the time of this similar murder of little Virginia Brooks in 1931. The investigators did all they could with the science available to them, and tried so hard to solve the case it is now a fascinating look into the history of forensic science, including entomology and horticulture. Virginia’s story will never end, but this account ends by daring to take a guess at who the police may have overlooked due to them not having the forensic science and criminal profiling tools that are available today. Can you guess who was overlooked?
