Item Details

"Brother's Keeper tells the story of the "Ward Boys, " four eccentric brothers who shared the same dilapidated two-room shack for over 60 years. Living in isolation, without heat or running water, these elderly bachelors had virtually no contact with the outside world--until one was found dead in the bed he shared with his brother. By day's end, Delbert Ward "confessed" to suffocating his ailing brother as an act of mercy, but Munnsville believed Delbert had been framed. Was Delbert, an uneducated hermit with a low IQ, an innocent victim of police abuse? Was it a mercy killing--or was there another motive?"--Container.

I enjoyed this very much. It's frightening that sometimes some members of the legal/justice system let their imaginations affect their judgement. Interesting people. Beautiful farm land that I hope isn't growing houses now.
