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.

5.0 su 5 stelle Hauntingly Addictive 23 luglio 2011

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.

5.0 su 5 stelle Great mystery and sad story! 29 maggio 2012

I love a mystery and especially love one based on a true story. When good authors take on stories, research correctly and provide all the details, it makes for such a great read! Author Marlene Gentilcore handles this true story and all of the questions surrounding it in a manner that makes you excited about turning to the next page!

The story is about an Indiana University of Pennsylvania student, Jack Alan Davis, Jr, who was reported missing in October of 1987. His body was found 5 days later in a part of the college where most thought he would have been found more quickly - a stairwell on campus.

After the body is sent to the coroner, he rules the manner of death an accident, stating that Jack drank too much then passed out and choked on his own vomit. But why wasn't he found sooner? He was found 5 days later. And what happened with the friends he was partying with the night he went missing? They all have a different story. And was the initial autopsy thorough enough to even rule on a cause of death? A second autopsy was performed after his body being exhumed 3 years later.

The results of the 2nd autopsy showed several skull fractures and bleeding inside of his head - these injuries never noted on the first autopsy. It was also found that he had no alcohol in his system, slight pneumonia and even more troubling - several days of beard growth. Strange how he was always clean shaven?

The book runs the gammet of alleged wrong doing by medical examiners, shotty police investigations and accusations that Davis' fraternity had some members that were not on the up and up - primarily his "big brother" in the fraternity, who was know as a major cocaine dealer on campus.

To this day, the entire mystery has not been solved, but Genticore lays out all of the information she found during her research and leaves it up to the reader to come to their own conclusions.

I really loved this book and it even made me go out and read up on this young mans story. Very sad indeed - especially since it seems there are many people that know exactly what happened to him - but refuse to tell the real story.
