Till Death Do Us Part: A Collection of Newlywed Murder Cases

Available in Paperback, eBook, and Audiobook!

Studies have shown that marriages typically thrive the most in the months after the wedding, a span of time known as “the honeymoon period.”

Not these marriages.

Spousal murder is never acceptable, but newlywed murder seems to be on a completely different level. It is unconscionable to think someone could stand in front of his family and friends, pledging to honor and cherish another person for the rest of his life, and then kill his spouse in cold blood just months, weeks, or even days later. It happens more than you’d think–and, contrary to popular belief, it’s not always the husband who acts as the aggressor.

In her third true crime book, bestselling author JJ Slate examines more than twenty true stories of newlywed murders, delving into the past of the victims and aggressors, searching for answers to the question everyone is asking: How does this sort of thing happen? These shocking cases of betrayal and murder might just make you think differently about those five sacred words, “till death do us part.”

 

Backseat Tragedies: Hot Car Deaths

Published April 14, 2015 via RJ Parker Publishing, Inc.

It’s a topic no one wants to talk about. When we hear about these cases of children forgotten in their car seats, left alone in the hot sun to die, our first reaction is to instinctively blame the parent or caregiver. We think, how could anyone forget about their own child for a moment, let alone hours? But the awful reality is that these tragedies happen to people from all walks of life. Many of the parents detailed in this book never thought such a thing could ever happen to them. They were wrong.

On average, thirty-seven U.S. children die each year after becoming trapped or forgotten in a hot vehicle. Between the years 1998 and 2014, 636 children perished inside a hot car in the United States. The numbers are staggering. The stories are heartbreaking. But what can we do about it?

In Backseat Tragedies: Hot Car Deaths, bestselling true crime authors RJ Parker and JJ Slate explore the circumstances that led to the deaths of over twenty children who died of hyperthermia, or heatstroke, in a car. They explore the science of how quickly a car can heat to deadly temperatures and why the human brain can so easily be tricked into forgetting something as important as a child. They also highlight important steps we can take as a community to prevent future casualties. Spreading awareness about the reality of hot car deaths is the first step toward eliminating these tragedies.

In July of 2009, twenty-one-year-old Heather Snively logged onto Craigslist in search of used baby clothes and toys. She was eight months pregnant with her first child and so excited to marry her fiancé and start their family. She never imagined the woman she contacted on the site had plans to murder her in cold blood and rip the baby from her womb. In 2010, eighteen-year-old Nona Belomesoff met a young man on Facebook and thought she had made a new friend and connection to her dream job. Little did she know that this man had been studying her every move through social media to gain her trust and ultimately take her life. Stories like this happen every day.

Who is really on the other end of that Facebook friend request, or behind that dating profile, or posting that item for sale on Craigslist? How can you be safe if you plan to meet up with a stranger you met online? What precautions should you take? In this book, we’ve detailed more than thirty chilling true stories of killers that have used the internet to locate, stalk, lure, or exploit their victims. Facebook, Craigslist, MySpace, chat rooms, dating sites—it does not matter where you are online; killers are lurking in the shadows. They visit suicide chat rooms, search for escorts on Craigslist, and create fake social media profiles to fool and gain the trust of their victims. Someone you have been talking to for months, or even years, could be a completely different person from what you envisioned.

Anyone can fall victim to an online killer on the World Wide Web. Learn how to protect yourself from such dangers as Parker and Slate highlight the importance of online privacy and include details on how to avoid sharing personal information online, a potentially dangerous and deadly act.

When a wife goes missing, her husband is often the prime suspect in her disappearance. But what happens when she is never found? These are the true stories of thirty missing women.

Fascinated by missing persons reports and cold cases for as long as she can remember, JJ Slate’s debut true crime book highlights true stories of wives that have mysteriously vanished, presumably at the hands of her husband. Countless cases like these have played out under the public spotlight, and many of them have been solved after the wife’s remains have eventually been found. But some of these women remain missing years later, denying the families their right to bury their loved ones. Many of these families continue the gruesome search for the remains of their daughter, granddaughter, sister, aunt, or mother years, even decades, later.

Missing Wives, Missing Lives focuses on thirty unique cases in which the wife has never been found and the undying efforts of her family as they continue the painful search to bring her home. The book covers decades old cases, such as Jeanette Zapata, who has been missing since 1976, to more recent and widely known cases, such as Stacy Peterson, who has been missing since 2007. Keeping these women’s stories alive may be the key to solving the mystery and bringing them home to their families. Someone out there knows something.
