I grew up 5 houses down from Leroy Fryrear and this book brought back so many depressing memories about that awful time when that murder took place. These kinds of things just didn't happen back then or we just didn't hear about them. It had the whole neighborhood on edge and to me it was so scary!
What made me recently think about Leroy Fryrear was that a murder of a pretty young blonde mother of 3 took place a few days ago in Lyndon not too far from Harris Pl.
After reading this book it makes it sound like someone else committed the murder of Faith Callahan besides Leroy. David Kaplan Sr, Leroy's attorney, had stressed over and over to the court that the prosecutor was holding back evidence/findings that would have proved Leroy innocent.
One of the things they didn't prove, was that the bloody rag, that was found by police in the Fryrear's backyard trash, was from Leroy cleaning blood off something. According to the story, it was from his dad throwing it in there after wiping his dogs bloodied face after he had a dog fight. The prosecutor contended the bloody rag had to have been left there by Leroy as it had type o negative blood, the same type as Faith Callahan's blood. Also and at the crime scene, the detectives made a cast of the frozen footprints on the grass that they said were from a size 10 1/2 shoe or boot. Leroy wore size 9 or 9 1/2 shoe according to the officers that were searching his bedroom at his home.
I don't know if it was the way the author told it or what but It seemed to me that it would have been impossible for Leroy to be responsible for the crime. For one thing, on the morning of the murder shortly before the time that Faith would have left her home for her walk to the bus stop, David was taking Leroy to work clear across town at a steel company?? It doesn't make sense!
According to the story, there were two or three other suspects that were hardly interrogated at all. One lived right next door to Faith and was a convicted rapist and the other two lived fairly close to Harris Pl.
Book also describes the 47 awful years he has spent in prison and the many murders that took place right behind bars! As a child growing up I had always thought that Leroy Fryrear was a scary thug that was always fighting someone---well, that much is pretty true but being a murdering rapist? I really don't know after reading this book!

This book is so engaging and is so shocking about what goes on inside of prison. This man has been so mistreated by the judicial system, it is so unfair! The justice system should definitely take a new look into this! My heart and prayers go out to this man.
