Description

A private citizen discovers compelling evidence that a decades-old murder in Nashville was not committed by the man who went to prison for the crime but was the result of a conspiracy involving elite members of Nashville society. Nashville 1964. Eighteen-year-old babysitter Paula Herring is murdered in her home while her six-year-old brother apparently sleeps through the grisly event. A few months later a judge's son is convicted of the crime. Decades after the slaying, Michael Bishop, a private citizen,stumbles upon a secret file related to the case and with the help of some of the world's top forensic experts—including forensic psychologist Richard Walter (aka "the living Sherlock Holmes")—he uncovers the truth. What really happened is completely different from what the public was led to believe. Now, for the very first time, Bishop reveals the true story. In this true-crime page-turner, the author lays out compelling evidence that a circle of powerful citizens were key participants in the crime and the subsequent cover-up. The ne'er-do-well judge's son, who was falsely accused and sent to prison, proved to be the perfect setup man. The perpetrators used his checkered history to conceal the real facts for over half a century. Including interviews with the original defense attorney and a murder confession elicited from a nursing-home resident, the information presented here will change Nashville history forever.

        July 24, 2017
        Bishop, a sales executive, proves a surprisingly effective amateur sleuth in this gripping examination of a 1964 slaying in Nashville that was apparently solved at the time. In 1997, after agreeing to help a friend research a history of major crimes committed in that city, Bishop found a file on the murder of college student Paula Herring, who was babysitting her younger brother in their home when she was killed, and became fascinated by the case. His review of the public records and interviews with local residents bolstered his suspicions that John Randolph Clarke was wrongfully convicted for the killing. By doggedly following every lead and using a salesman’s skills to gain the trust of the witnesses he interviewed, Bishop uncovers evidence that Clarke was framed, and, in so doing, builds a plausible and chilling theory as to the identity of the actual murderer. His first-person account of the steps he took to ascertain the truth gives the narrative a sense of immediacy.
