Good morning all. Today I will be promoting my story “The Death of Innocence”. This is only one true story in my new release, “Twisted Love.” So please commit for a chance to win a free copy of this riveting read. Thank You.
THE DEATH OF INNOCENCE
Home to Ohio University and Hocking College, Athens County, Ohio, was formed in 1805 and held a population of 64,753. Nestled deep in the Appalachian foothills of Southeast Ohio, its lively arts and music scene entertained locals and visitors alike all year round. It owed its eclectic shopping and dining scene to the presence of a large university as well as its rich Appalachian heritage. Hunting, kayaking, bouldering, hiking, cycling, and mountain biking are just some of the county’s most popular outdoor activities.
Boasting more activities then ticks on a dog, the rare action the county was not proudly known for was cold-blooded murder. Monday, May 23, 2011, changed all of that, when the Athens County Emergency Medical Service received a call.
According to one of the paramedics, when they arrived at the three-bedroom trailer in the small community of The Plains, they were shocked at what they found. Four-year-old, blue-eyed Marcie Willis was unresponsive with “suspicious marks” on her body and neck, indicating physical abuse. The child’s head and face was saturated with blood, making her long blonde hair almost unrecognizable.
