Will to Murder: The True Story Behind the Crimes & Trials Surrounding the Glensheen Killings |
On June 27, 1977, an intruder entered Glensheen, the stately Duluth manor built along the Lake Superior shore. Before leaving with a basketful of stolen jewelry, the intruder used a satin pillow to smother Elisabeth Congdon and Velma Pietila. Together with former Duluth News-Tribune crime reporter Gail Feichtinger, Duluth Police Detective Gary Waller and St. Louis County Prosecutor John DeSanto the men who investigated and prosecuted Marjorie and her husband, Roger Caldwell bring readers behind the scenes of the Minnesota s most infamous double murder. Feichtinger then reaches beyond the Glensheen killings to follow Marjorie through her convictions for arson and presents new evidence that suggests that Marjorie may have gotten away with murder five times.
