About this ebook

The acclaimed true crime author of Lobster Boy chronicles the brutal acts and eventual capture of two cannibalistic killers on Florida’s Gulf Coast.

Jeremiah Rodgers and Jonathan Lawrence met in a Florida hospital for the criminally insane, where both had been serving time for petty crimes. Upon their release, they traveled to Lawrence’s hometown of Milton, Florida, where they murdered Justin Livingston, Lawrence’s mentally challenged cousin. Their deadly spree continued when they viciously raped and shot 18-year-old Jennifer Robinson and then cannibalized her body.
 
Author Fred Rosen reports on how Detective Todd Hand solved the case and brought justice to the victims’ families. Hand had his work cut out for him as there was no clear motive behind these heinous crimes, but during questioning he caught the 2 killers in a lie about Justin Livingston’s whereabouts, which led to their arrests. Rodgers and Lawrence now reside on Florida’s death row.
