In December 1984 Dr. John Dale Cavaness was charged with the murder of his son Sean. The community was outraged and rose to his defense. What they didn’t know was that for years he had terrorized his family and his employees. He made disastrous financial investments and was a womanizer. No one spoke out because everyone was afraid of him.
Seven years earlier Cavaness’ first son was found dead of homicide in the woods of Little Egypt. That murder has never been officially solved but many believe Cavaness is responsible for it. This is the story of what happens when greed is greater than the love a man has for his children.
Meticulously researched and compelling written this is a fascinating account of the history of the area in Southern Illinois known as Little Egypt and the life of Dr. Cavaness and his family and how he was able to hide his predilections for power and money from almost everyone. I recommend this to true crime fans.
