Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

On October 17, 1987, Jack Alan Davis, Jr. disappeared. Five days later, his body was found at the bottom of a campus stairwell. By noon the next day, the county coroner announced he drank too much alcohol, passed out and choked to death on his own vomit—not everyone believed him.

This moving and ultimately redemptive book tells the story of Jack, the student who died at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, of the older brother who was determined to find out how Jack died, and of the tireless reporter who devoted herself to finding justice and truth for Jack’s family. The true story takes readers from idyllic campus scenes haunted by imagines of senseless and brutal death, to the coroner’s examination room, all while questioning how we treat the dead—and how we treat those who survive.
As Marlene Gentilcore tells her readers in the final pages of Justice Wanted, “Looking back now, I realize that no matter the outcome of our...courageous quest, we have lived the real American dream”—fighting for the promise of a nation based on justice for all.

Freelance writer, Marlene Gentilcore earned her Journalism/Pre-Law degree at the University of Pittsburgh; won the Pennsylvania Keystone Press Award for Investigative Reporting and appeared on Unsolved Mysteries. She is currently at work on her next book.

HASH(0xa9d616fc) su 5 stelle This is a must read for all fans of true crime and unsolved msyteries. 28 giugno 2012

When an investigative reporter, the author, is shown a videotape of the second autopsy of the body of Jack Davis, who disappeared on October 17th 1987, she knows she has to find out the truth behind this mysterious death.

As new evidence and testimonies were proved and taken and leads take the investigation down new avenues, it shows that in order to find out the truth or prove than an injustice has been done, that you need to be brave and intrepid with relentless gusto.

The real strength of the reporting of the investigation is the emotion that you feel, when reading, the frustration and anger of the family, who feel that all the lines of new evidence are totally shut before they are even opened. The skepticism and fear that the author faces from all parties is shocking.

As we all know when trying to find out the truth, the people who want it kept hidden go to extraordinary lengths to do so. As the facts, interviews and evidence are still coming to light, hopefully the family can have closure on what happened to their offspring. Having the book highlight this crime and bring it to the forefront of peoples minds again is another great key to the success of finding out the truth.

The writing and explanations of the investigation are presented in a totally unbiased manner and the author lets the reader make their own decisions based on her findings and the facts.

This is a must read for all fans of true crime and unsolved msyteries.

Some books grab you and won't let you go. They will torment you as you try to sleep. Some books will lure you all day as you tend to daily tasks. You know the adventure awaits or the mystery needs more investigation to be solved. "Justice Wanted" is such a book for me. I don't allow myself to read it during the day, because I would get nothing done, but at night I read it until I can't keep my eyes open any longer and then this mystery haunts my dreams. Ms Gentilcore takes us on a sine wave tour of investigative reporting. Thanks for the roller coaster ride Ms Gentilcore.

True to life mysteries are always better than fiction and this mystery is definitely no exception. What seems like an unfortunate accident by an intoxicated student at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) - may have been the result of foul play. The student, who was missing for five days after a night of drinking was found dead in a secluded stairwell on campus. The student’s body was found by members of his own fraternity who wanted to assist in the search for the student. The county coroner immediately ruled the death happened on the night the student disappeared and it was an accident caused by alcohol and inhalation of his own vomit. The outdoor stairwell, though secluded, was attached to a very busy academic building used by hundreds of students each day and no one noticed the body until a search was organized. The student's family was skeptical of the coroner’s determination of death as well as the collaborating report of the local authorities and pushed a reporter to look into his death. The reporter – the author of this griping and hard to put down book, uncovered information that either was overlooked or kept hidden. The student, who was clean shaven on the night he was drinking and disappeared - why did he have a few days beard growth when his body was found? More interesting - why was there no alcohol found in his blood by the autopsy? Was he held hostage for a few days before he died? Did he die of foul play or possibly murdered and placed in the stairwell? When new information was uncovered, the family received approval (years after the death) to have the student’s body exhumed for a second autopsy. The second autopsy was performed by renowned Pathologist Cyril Wecht, who determined the student died of blunt force trauma to his head. However, this type of trauma did not appear to be consistent with a fall into the stairwell. The mystery kept getting deeper and deeper. Was his fraternity involved? Some of the student’s fraternity brothers were reported to be heavily involved in the sale of illegal drugs. Could that have played a part? Did the local authorities blow the investigation. Or, did they help to cover things up? Read the book and decide.
