Legal Deception is one of the most intriguing books you will ever read. A gripping story chronicling the grisly discovery of 300+ uncremated bodies recovered from the Tri-State Crematory in Noble, Georgia, and the web of lies and deceit that followed. The gruesome discovery was described as a scene out of a horror movie. Authorities found hundreds of bodies scattered throughout the woods, buried in pits and stuffed in burial vaults. The discovery of the well-respected Marshes' shocking secret resonated around the world. The search and recovery of uncremated bodies did not end this tale of horror.
Impacted by events at the Tri-State Crematory both personally and professionally, Author Teri Crawford has written this book which delves deep into the secrets many tried to keep hidden. After learning the remains of her brother had been sent to Tri-State just months before the first bodies were discovered, Crawford volunteered to help in the investigation, and was hired as the DNA Coordinator. She soon discovered that cover-ups and back room deals triumphed over the truth.
Was the public given the true facts? Were bodies left buried on the property? Did the GBI Medical Examiner botch the identies of the remains? Most importantly, did the Marsh family receive a large settlement for their sinister crimes?
Neither hype nor liberty has been taken with the presentation of facts presented in this book, as the photographs, court documents and especially the Orders of the Federal Court setting forth the setlement of the Georgia class action speaks loudly to the facts
This story goes far beyond the initial wrongdoing of the Marshes. There are twists and turns from beginning to end as you are led through the investigation and court room shenanigans of the attorneys. Two tragedies occurred on that day and it is left to the reader to decide the truth.
