“There is no crueler tyranny than that which is exercised under cover of law, and with the colors of justice.” - U.S. v. Jannotti, 673 F.2d 578, 614 (3d Cir. 1982). The sun trickled through the dense tangle of the spring’s budding branches. Karen Wolfe Churgin walked her dogs on April 18, 1990, on her remote wooded property on Chebacco Road. The veterinarian spotted a white sphere obstructing a drainage ditch. Churgin’s home sat on top of the bluff overlooking Chebacco Lake, and the lower-wooded basin was often flooded with water. The sparsely inhabited wilderness in Hamilton, Massachusetts attracted hikers and bikers, but was also a secluded setting known for criminal activity. From a distance, she saw an object, a white sphere. When she reached to dislodge it, she reeled back in horror. She immediately called the police. “I saw something in the woods that looked like a punched-in volleyball,” Karen told the Beverly Times on April 25, 1990. “I looked closer and it was a human skull. It had suture-like zigzagged lines. Those are unique to human skulls.” Officer Hatfield was the first to respond, and the initial conclusion determined the discovery was, indeed, a human skull. Hamilton Police Chief Walter Cullen arrived at the scene next and photographed the find. The Massachusetts State Police Crime Prevention and Control Unit, CPAC, dispatched Cpl. Dennis Marks to take charge of the crime scene. Local police sent the skull and a nearby black boot to Hunt Memorial Hospital to examine, but nothing else surfaced in the initial cursory search of the surrounding area. Notices went out to departments to assist the resident force, and names poured in to compare the cranium to known missing persons. Joan Webster’s name appeared on the list, but the resting spot was more than thirty miles from the long-speculated crime scene at Pier 7 in Boston. “Of course, it’s being checked out, but the location doesn’t seem to correlate. Circumstances pointed to her being taken out in a boat and dumped at sea. This is something way up north and doesn’t tie to anything.” -George Webster Harvard Crimson April 28, 1990

L'autore

Eve Carson was born in Danville, Illinois in 1953, and has lived in the Midwest most of her life. She is a graduate of Purdue University with a degree in economics and industrial management. She was a supervisor for General Motors and a marketing representative for IBM before taking time to be a stay-at-home mom with her daughters. Eve married Joan Webster’s brother, Steve, on January 5, 1980, and she was part of the immediate family when Joan disappeared. As a mother, Eve was active in the schools and her girl’s activities. She volunteered time and skills to numerous organizations, fundraising, and promoting a positive environment for her children. Ms. Carson earned the reputation for speaking out when serious circumstances warranted a voice and a backbone to stand up against abuse. Unfortunately, in our society, Eve learned blowing a whistle often has a personal cost. She brings a unique insight into the enigmatic Webster family and the devastating events that have spanned more than a quarter century. Trauma continued to plague members of the Webster family. Without justification, Eve found herself in Joan’s shoes, alienated from her children, and missing from their lives. Joan’s blood relatives devalued and discarded a member of their family. Repeated history and a horrifying allegation were the catalysts for Ms. Carson to unravel the lingering mystery of Joan’s loss. When Tim Burke published events surrounding Joan’s unresolved case in 2008, Eve pressed to recover documents, interview witnesses, and research the case. Insight, instinct, and memory, corroborated in files, unveiled a complex and secretive manipulation of Joan’s murder investigation. The search for truthful answers followed a path filled with obstructions and exposed evidence of public corruption. Examining a cold murder case opened new avenues Eve would like to share with others who have suffered devastating tragedy. Writing, interviews, and presenting facts are tools to shatter the silence and dispel myths. Too often, society blames the victims. Ms. Carson undertook a daunting challenge, fighting a system that obscured justice in the brutal murder of a loved one. Supported with facts documented in files, she persevered through personal attacks. Eve hopes her experiences will lead to stronger sunshine laws that remove control from those who fail to protect the vulnerable.

1.0 su 5 stelle Trying to Profit from a Tragic Murder? 10 settembre 2014
Di RaeAnne - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
First of all I will say I have not read this book and I do not plan to. I have viewed pieces of it through Amazon. In general, I have an aversion to anyone who tries to gain attention, profit, or dramatize their life by capitalizing on a murder. The author has NOTHING to contribute to the investigation of the muder of my sister. The author went through a divorce with my brother, the brother of Joan Webster (a murder victim), and as a result of the divorce, she decides to enact "revenge" (if that is what you call it) by publishing events that occurred during her divorce which were likely very hurtful to her.
However, by trying to show a link between her divorce, how she feels she is a victim (of her divorce), she draws unrelated parallels between her life and my sister's death.
Ms Carson probably has been in the company of my sister a handful of times (I can actually count them, and I come up with 6). She did not know Joan Webster. It disgusts me to read her claim that she loved Joan or that Joan had any affection for her. If Joan were alive today, she would be disgusted with Ms Carson's behavior. I knew Joan very well. We were sisters. We grew up together. We went to the same camp. I knew her friends. I knew all about her boyfriends. I was involved with the investigation of her murder. I was with her on the drive to NJ from Boston 3 days before her murder, where we talked about many things. One would think, if she were a thorough investigator (that is what she calls herself), she would consult with me, Joan's sister. But no, not one query.
I feel very sorry for Ms Carson, who feels she has to justify her life by dramatizing my sister's death. And to what end? What good has come from it? There is no cover-up (that Ms Carson has fabricated to create drama). My sister's murder was a horrible event that my brother, my parents, and I went through many years ago. I will always be the sister of a murder victim. I think of Joan every day. So what does Ms Carson do to my family by writing this book? She actually suggests with a lot of innuendo that my parents may have had involvement in the murder. Shame on you Eve! Again, imagine my sister up in heaven witnessing what you have done, what you have written.
I expect you will defend yourself, feel that you are justified in whatever you do or write. My parents had a tramatic event in their lives. And knowing you, you wil spin this to say YOU are a victim. You are not the only person who has gone through a divorce. But your divorce has nothing to do with Joan's murder.
So go ahead, and self-publish a lot of nonsense. It just makes you look pathetic. If you like your facts, it is a fact that ALL of Joan's friends think your book is pathetic. You mail the book to her old friends, and their first reaction is to contact me and my family and say they think you book is nonsense (they usually use another word).
The people who knew Joan the best have nothing to do with you. Like I said, I feel sorry for you. It really seems like a waste of time.
Life is much better spent doing good in this world.

Di Rockin' Rik - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile|Acquisto verificato
A very disturbing yet insightful read. Despite the fact the author comes off very paranoid and self-involved at times she still offers insight into a very secretive family with sinister motives involving the disappearance and murder of a loved one. I loved reading this to find out just what authorities left out in the total frame up of an innocent man. Great read throughout.

4.0 su 5 stelle great summer true crime read 27 maggio 2014
Di Patricia statham - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
This is a true story of Joan Webster who went missing . The story starts on Thanksgiving many years before. On thanksgiving in 1981 Joan Webster heads to the airport, never to be seen again. She wen missing.

Eve , Joan's sister n law and friend, started looking into her disappearance . She was trying to get justice for Joan and her family. As she unravels the clues , it almost looks like Joan was just collateral damage . Eve pieces things together slowly the more she finds out the messier everything seems to get

Eve takes us through every piece of evidence. but as she finds out more and gets deeper into the case, the more she looses her family. They become distant and then they do the unthinkable and they turn against her. Basically shutting her out from their lives. But like a dog with a bone she doesn't give up and keeps going after the evidence. But, with every clue she uncovers the more the authorities turn her away.

The case is a heart breaker. The way the family turns against her when all she tries to do is help . The book is full of so many facts and timelines which helps tell the story , Eve has worked very hard on the getting all the evidence and putting it all together in one great book . It a thick book but it is a great read . You will be lost in trying to figure out what happened to Joan . I know I was trying to piece it all together . There are so many twists and turns that you will be reading all night long. This case hasn't been solved so maybe with the retelling of Joan's story.

Maybe just maybe there might be something come to light. To help solve this case and help Joan come home .

If you love a mystery and also like a true story crime novel this is the book for you . So check it out and help try and figure out this case . You won't be disappointed .

4.0 su 5 stelle Mommy's A Mole 14 maggio 2014
Di Sandra K. Stiles - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
As I began reading this book I was immediately reminded of another controversial book. Lois Duncan wrote a book called, “Who Killed My Daughter”. Both books have ruffled feathers of those they had at one time been close to. I can’t imagine the pain and agony knowing a loved one was murdered and then finding so much evidence that was tainted, twisted and misused. This review in no way says I believe either side. I will say that the author has definitely produced a lot of evidence that makes me believe that things were not what they appeared to be. There were way too many inconsistencies. To me the thing that is so difficult to deal with was the fact that her husband and his family turned on her.
Joan Webster was the sister-in-law of the author of this book. She went missing shortly after Thanksgiving. Eve Carson was not satisfied with the answers she got about Joan’s disappearance and eventual discovery. When she tried to ask questions she was attacked by those you would consider on her side. Joan has done a lot of work on her own and provided a lot of documentation to backup her beliefs. My one hope is that she finds what she is looking for, the truth in this case. Maybe by writing this book she will create enough buzz to truly have this case solved. This is definitely a book I recommend to those who love reading true stories.
I received a review copy in exchange for my honest review.

5.0 su 5 stelle Brave Search for Justice 21 aprile 2014
Di McGuffy Ann Morris - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
This is a true story, written by one who lived it. Author Eve Carson writes about what happened in her own family, and her necessary search for justice.

The story actually begins many years ago. It is Thanksgiving weekend, 1981, and Joan Webster is traveling through Logan Airport. However, she never makes it to her destination; she comes up missing.

Married to Joan’s brother, and friends with Joan, author Eve Carson pursues justice for Joan and the family. She is horrified, but motivated by the things that she uncovers. Though for her it began with the disappearance of Joan, she finds that Joan may have been collateral damage. The more she learns, the messier the entire case gets. Things are not what they had seemed.

In this thick book, Eve goes over the case, people involved, and the evidence she uncovers in great detail. She includes a Timeline at the rear of the book, as well as copies of actual documents and proof. Her private investigation is thorough and impressive.

Sadly, as she finds herself embroiled in the case, Eve ends up losing her own family. Her husband and his family turn on her. There are many victims and extensive fall out in this story. However, Eve does not give up in her pursuit of justice. Perhaps the most disturbing aspect of the case is that the more “dirt” Eve uncovers, the more the authorities look away.

It is my hope that Eve’s book will bring this case to the proper authorities, who will resolve this miscarriage of justice. Only then will healing begin.
