This is the true account of Carl “Coral” Eugene Watts, a serial killer in Michigan, when Michigan got too ‘hot’ for him, in the sense that a local detective had him pegged for several murders, he moved to Texas. He didn’t stop killing though, by the time he was arrested he had killed 13 more women. Watts killed in a variety of ways and left little evidence behind. He confessed but plea bargained to burglary with a 60 year sentence. Due to a legal flaw in the Texas criminal justice system, Watts was supposed to be released from prison in 2006. Through the ceaseless efforts of investigators and the mother of one of the victims, Watts was finally tried and convicted to life in prison for a murder he’d committed in Michigan in 1979.
This book has it all, the life of Watts, his life of crime, a brief biography of his victims, mainly because there were so many (I counted 40 women linked to or suspected to be linked to him), the trial and then the briefs and motions he filed to reduce his sentence and the efforts made to keep him in prison. A fascinating well written account of a horrible person.
