CAITLIN ROTHER TRUE CRIME RETROSPECTIVE-Caitlin Rother
Tom and Jackie Hawks loved their life in retirement, sailing on their yacht, the Well Deserved. But when the birth of a new grandson called them back to Arizona, they put the boat up for sale. Skylar Deleon and his pregnant wife Jennifer showed up as prospective buyers, with their baby in a stroller, and the Hawkses thought they had a deal. Soon after a sea trial and an alleged purchase, however, the older couple disappeared and the Deleons promptly tried to access the Hawkses’ bank accounts.As police investigated the case, they not only found a third homicide victim with ties to Skylar, they also uncovered an unexpected and unusual motive: Skylar had wanted gender reassignment surgery for years. By killing the Hawkses with a motley crew of assailants and plundering the couple’s assets, the Deleons had planned to clear their $100,000 in debts and still have money for the surgery, which Skylar had already scheduled.Now, in this up-to-the-minute updated edition, which includes extensive new material, New York Times bestselling author Caitlin Rother presents the latest breaking developments in the case. Skylar, who was ultimately sentenced to death row for the three murders, transitioned to a woman via hormones while living in the psych unit at San Quentin prison. Recently, she legally changed her name and gender to female, apparently a strategic step in her quest to obtain taxpayer-subsidized gender confirmation surgery and transfer to a women’s prison. Combined with Governor Gavin Newsom’s recent moratorium on executions, this only adds insult to injury for the victims’ families, who want Skylar to receive the ultimate punishment for her crimes Dead Reckoning: Extensively Revised and Updated-Caitlin Rother
New York Times bestselling crime authors Caitlin Rother and Gregg Olsen have joined up to release this compilation of incredible murder cases from Florida, South Carolina and Georgia. In Florida a former flight attendant murders her multimillionaire boyfriend of eighteen years, using a gun, a knife, a hammer (and possibly poisoned gin), claiming he was abusive for years and put a loaded gun to her head. A woman with a history of violent, drug-addicted boyfriends kills her latest lover after only a few weeks together, alleging that he forced a gun into her mouth in a drug-induced rage. A 15-year-old girl falls in love and wants to have a baby with a boyfriend who is four years older. Her mother, who wants to end the relationship, ends up dead after being stabbed, choked, and injected with a syringe loaded with bleach. A 16-year-old girl and her 20-year-old boyfriend conspire to fatally bludgeon her disapproving father with a baseball bat. In Georgia a socialite wife of a multimillionaire is fatally shot by a flower delivery man on the day of a key divorce hearing. A crooked businessman trying to go straight is shot in his driveway by a hit man wearing a ski mask and camouflage gear—a contract-for-hire murder, advertised in Soldier of Fortune magazine. A Gulf War veteran and father of three is kidnapped, beaten and stabbed by the lover of his on-and-off-again wife, who wants to collect life insurance benefits and pay off her house.In South Carolina a woman goes to the electric chair after a vengeful feud over a dead calf turns fatal; the state's most prolific serial killer manages to kill a fellow prisoner while on death row; and a young white man tries to incite a race war by fatally shooting nine African-Americans during Bible study in a historic church.
