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.

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES.
I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes.
I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads..
I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet.
And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
