On a sunny day in December 1974, Charles Campbell came to rural Clearview, Washington. He attacked Renae Wicklund, brutally raping her in her own home in front of her 16-month-old daughter. That was only the beginning.
Sentenced to 30 years for the crime, Campbell was out on the streets only 8 years later. He'd been set free by an overworked criminal justice system that failed to inform Renae of his early release. Now, she would pay the ultimate price. For this time, Campbell would go one horrifying step beyond rape.
When Campbell was through, he left behind the butchered bodies of Renae, her daughter, an innocent neighbor--and the most gruesome crime scene local investigators had ever encountered.
