Sensational headlines were made in 1982 when a 13-year-old runaway from Georgia was killed.

This is the true story of the lawyer forced to represent the perpetrator of the heinous crimes, written by the lawyer himself. With theft, burglary, armed robbery, embezzlement, kidnapping, rape, two murders, the Neelley crime spree is one of the most gruesome in history. Robert B.
