Fatal Flaw: A True Story of Malice and Murder in a Small Southern Town
by Phillip Finch
Publisher: Booktrope 1992
Fatal Flaw examines an unsolved murder of four that occurred on Christmas Eve, 1975, at a furniture shop in Orange County, Florida. The person convicted of the murders remains on Death Row -- more than 30 years after his conviction -- despite evidence that emerged post-trial that casts doubt on his guilt. The book reveals the prosecution's muddled case, mishandled forensic evidence, and unreliable key witness testimony.
