Description : On a hot summer day in 1975, 14-year-old Christie Lynn Mullins left her neighborhood swimming pool with a friend, supposedly to attend a "cheerleading contest" behind a shopping center in Columbus, Ohio. Less than an hour later, she was found brutally beaten to death in the nearby woods. The neighborhood man who reported discovering her body was thought by many to be the true killer, but was never charged. Instead, the crime was pinned on a passive drifter with an IQ of 50, who confessed after six hours of interrogation. Two years later he was acquitted following a dramatic, Perry Mason-like trial full of surprise witnesses and testimony. "An All-American Murder," by lawyer and journalist John Oller, is the story of a homicide that rocked the city of Columbus, Ohio nearly 40 years ago and remains unsolved to this day. Despite widespread belief that the original police investigation was flawed, law enforcement authorities never actively pursued this alternate suspect and refuse to discuss the case today. Friends, neighbors, and classmates of the victim, as well her family, firmly believe that justice was not done and that this "cold case" should be reopened. "An All-American Murder" has been described as "a tragic, fascinating story well-told," and "an exceptionally well written, insightful look into the angst that people can carry for decades when the criminal justice system is unable/unwilling to provide closure." Perhaps with the benefit of this book, closure will finally be obtained.
