Charles Bosworth and Don W Weber
Her story sounded suspicious from the beginning. A masked intruder brandishing a gun had broken into her rural Illinois home and kidnapped Paula Sims' newborn daughter, Loralei. Days later, the infant's remains were found in the woods. While police suspected that Paula, and possibly her husband, Robert, were responsible for their daughter's death, they had no hard evidence. More than three years later in another town, Paula, then the mother of a year-old son, reported that her six-week-old daughter Heather had been kidnapped. But this time police would not stop searching until they discovered the whole, horrifying truth: Heather had been murdered by her own mother, her body stored in the family freezer to confuse the police about the time of death and then dumped in a garbage can. This riveting account reveal the twisted sexuality and bitter hatred seething below the surface of a seemingly normal family ... and tells of the massive investigation and nerve-shattering trial that finally brought justice to two innocent victims.
