  1. HARRY, IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE WHAT YOU FIND OUT, ABOUT THE CHARLES STARKWEATHER CASE. I HAVE READ A LOT OF THINGS ABOUT IT. GLAD TO HEAR YOUR GOING TO DO A BOOK.

    • Thanks, Linda. There’s been a lot written, but a not yet unwritten. Digging into it has been an amazing experience. (Your name is quite familiar, but I can’t quite place it. Sorry).

  2. Have you spoken to or heard from the families of his victims? Do they know about your plans for a book on Starkweather? Don’t get me wrong I have nothing against you, (I’ve read your book on the McElroy case, it was a fascinating read). I am just hoping that you have their permission that’s all. One must remember that more than 50 years on they are still haunted by his crimes.

    ( I’ve made my name as Anonymous for privacy if that’s okay)?

    • I have spoken with some family members of the victims. There is no ethical or journalistic requirement to obtain permission from anyone to write a story which involves them.
