Sinossi

"A superbly crafted tale of murder and mystery but, too, of perplexing official misconduct which leaves worrying suspicions about trusting a system that protects us all. Along with his fascinating debut book, BLOODY LIES, Mr. Ferak is making an indelible mark in the true crime genre.”— Jim Hollock, author of the award-winning crime story, BORN TO LOSE

When they met, Jessica O'Grady was a tall, starry-eyed Omaha, Nebraska co-ed in search of Mr. Right, Christopher Edwards was a deceitful and darkened soul. In May of 2006, Jessica's mystifying disappearance and a blood-soaked mattress turned into Nebraska's biggest news story. Enter Douglas County Sheriff's CSI stalwart Dave Kofoed, driven to solve high-profile murders and in this case would lead to questions surrounding the forensic evidence used against Edwards.

BODY OF PROOF, the new true crime from award-winning journalist and author of DIXIE'S LAST STAND, John Ferak, is the stand-alone sequel to his first book BLOODY LIES.

"The case of Jessica O'Grady's disappearance remains controversial. ... A compelling account of a strange case." - Peter Vronsky, bestselling author of Serial Killers: The Method and Madness of Monsters

"Compelling ... a memorable true story." - RJ Parker, bestselling true crime author and publisher

5.0 su 5 stelle Excellent read - Body of Proof: Tainted Evidence by John Ferak 15 luglio 2015
Di Yonah reviewer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I saw this and grabbed it yesterday, finding it to be a thorough, gripping read about the disappearance of Jessica O'Grady in May 2006. Body of Proof is the sequel to John Ferak's debut book, Bloody Lies. It tells the story of the crime, investigation and trial involving a corrupt CSI head David Kofoed, who may have planted evidence. Kofoed had already gotten away with his nefarious case enabling in 2 other big cases, and likely wanted to assure an arrest and help with the conviction of Jessica's seemingly obvious yet untouchable killer, Christopher Edwards. Edwards appeared to be benefitting from having managed to successfully keep the whereabouts of the victim's body hidden, making it Nebraska's first no-body case. Its great to read a book that's not full of spelling and grammar errors distracting from the flow of the story.

5.0 su 5 stelle “The Scorpion investigating the Serpent” 23 luglio 2015
Di C. Tilson - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
19 year old Jessica O’Grady goes missing after telling her lover, Christopher Edwards that she is pregnant. Christopher’s steady girlfriend is also pregnant, and talk of marriage is in the air. After Omaha PD find reason to pursue Edwards for Jessica’s disappearance, it is decided to call in Douglas County’s crack CSI team, led by Dave Kofoed. Kofoed’s team has a reputation of being the best CSI group in all of Nebraska, finding crucial evidence to help convict some of the worst criminals Nebraska has ever seen. They even found a small amount of blood in the bottom of a dumpster 5 months after the victim had gone missing. Hmm, red flag. The one good thing that you can say about Kofoed is he doesn’t hog the glory, he congratulates his team first. If they only knew who they were really investigating.
It is very easy to see how the years of being a newspaper reporter has paid off for this author. He knows the key players and their stories. Sticking to the facts, his composition of the story reads better than most fiction. His interjection of emotion and opinions do not get in the way of the story, they add color. “The Scorpion investigating the Serpent” is a classic example of his work. Even after years in jail, Edwards has never confessed to the crime, nor has he given up the location of Jessica’s remains. Again, this is not fiction, and it is not a pretty story. This story needed to be told – and John Ferak is the best person to do so.

5.0 su 5 stelle Very compelling story of a love triangle leading to murder. 20 luglio 2015
Di Lee Husemann - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This is a very well researched and well written book that I had a hard time putting down once I started it. Jessica O'Grady fell for Christopher Edwards who obviously thought of himself as some sort of a ladies man. What happened to her was really sad and I do hope that her family gets closure. I was shocked to learn that one of the CSI people had planted evidence on different cases and that led to a lot of suspicion regarding this case. I was also surprised that the police would not arrest Edwards even with all of the blood evidence on the mattress along with the blood spatter evidence and recording of him buying white paint to cover evidence on the ceiling tiles. This was an excellent book and I highly recommend it.

5.0 su 5 stelle Phenomenal Case 18 luglio 2015

This book had me in tears. I can't believe that the same crime investigator got a hold of another case as well and did the same scheme. I enjoyed the phenomenal details, pictures so that we can have a view of what was going on as well. This family still does not have closure because their daughter is not home anymore. Prayers for the family and friends. Another great book from a fabulous author (John Feral). From the first chapter it grabbed my attention and I wanted to know more and I got more than I expected. I recommend this book to anyone because it was so great.

Di katrig - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Wow what a book! It is an extremely well-written true crime book and grabbed my attention from the very beginning a great true gripping read. This is the first book I have read by John Ferak and it will not be my last.
Jessica O'Grady age 19 met Christopher Edwards working at a steakhouse in west Omaha. Christopher also worked at the steakhouse and Jessica spoke about Christopher on a regular basis. They became lovers and Jessica becomes pregnant but Christopher has also been seeing another girlfriend Michelle Wilkin who is also pregnant and they had been discussing marriage. Jessica was only ever a fling to Christopher until the news about her pregnancy he was having fun juggling both girls. But now he decides life is too complicated, so he decides she has to go as he will lose Michelle if she ever finds out about Jessica.
Christopher was seen by Jessica's roommates at their apartment the day before Jessica was last seen. Jessica was text messaging and talking about Christopher to her flat mate throughout the evening. Then after Jessica received a phone call, she told Holly and Tracy to "wish her luck, she was going to see Chris and would catch up with them later. That is the last time the friends ever saw each other, but later that night Jessica sent The last text the girls were ever going to here from their dear friend. Jessica sent the text from Christopher’s about an hour later that said, "No shenanigans for Jessica," meaning no sex for Jessica.
Jessica never returned to her apartment, Jessica's mystifying disappearance led to a report of her missing to the Omaha police. Omaha police interviewed Christopher and obtained permission to search his bedroom. Splattered blood was found on the nightstand, headboard, clock radio and ceiling above the bed. One very large, damp bloodstain was found on the underside of the mattress, covering most of the bottom side of the mattress. Bloodstains were also found on the bedding, a chair in the room, a bookcase and laundry baskets
Christopher had been videotaped purchasing poster paint, white shoe polish, and correction fluid at the drugstore on May 11th. DNA profiles from the blood found in Christopher's bedroom was consistent with Jessica's DNA profile.
Dave Kofoed. team has a reputation of being the best CSI group in all of Nebraska, finding crucial evidence to help convict some of the worst criminals Nebraska has ever seen. In 2007, Christopher was convicted of murdering his teenaged girlfriend, Jessica O'Grady. Her body has never been found but there was enough evidence from the blood on the mattress and in Christopher’s room
As years go by David Kofoed, the lead crime scene investigator, was eventually convicted of tampering with evidence collected in another homicide investigation and sent to prison. Other victims of other cases were found not guilty but no matter what you think of Kofoed and we all know a dirty policeman/women is as low as the people they try to prosecute.
After reading all the evidence in this book my conclusion is Christopher Edwards is about as psychopathic as they come, to this day. He steadfastly maintains his innocence, even when there was so much evidence and blood to convict alone. I cannot understand after so many years how his severely misguided parents be still in denial. Even his x girlfriend Michelle at the trial said she would still marry him if he was acquitted.
Edwards you need to let Jessica’s parents know where you buried her and give them closure but I will not hold my breath and hope your life behind bars is hell on earth.
