It is written by Laura James, former news reporter turned trial lawyer and devotee of forgotten true crime stories and the fascinating people who wrote them.

ABOUT LAURA JAMES

I earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism and history from the Journalism School at Central Michigan University, courtesy of a full-ride scholarship from the Lapeer County Press, one of the most respected, two-fisted country weeklies in the nation while under its famous publisher, the late Robert Myers.

I went on to law school at the University of Detroit Mercy, where I graduated first in my class of 222 in 1994. I have been in private practice since.
