My ebook about the Texas Slave Ranch case is available for purchase on Amazon Kindle. Go to Amazon.com and enter my name and/or The Texas Slave Ranch. I revised it and this edition includes about 20 pictures that I got from the District Clerk's file or licensed from the San Antonio Express News.
I tried not to focus on the brutality, although there's no way not to talk about it. My focus is more on why it happened, and also on the trial and why a jury of supposedly God-loving, patriotic law n' order Texans essentially let a bunch of degenerates that could have stepped out of the movie Deliverance, or the three monsters in Cleaveland who held those poor girls captive as sex slaves, get away with kidnapping, torture and murder.
Having the money to hire Racehorse Haynes didn't hurt the defense. Dan Cogdell was a young lawyer, and he did a great job too. The funniest line in the whole trial was when he said that a witness was the kind of person you see in the supermarket tabloids, "I was Bigfoot's love slave."
