His Garden: Interview with author Anne K. Howard

    A monster was on a killing spree. In just nine months, seven people went missing; all of their bodies eventually discovered in a wooded lot behind a suburban strip mall. But the investigation that led law enforcement to their suspect, William Devin Howell, is only part of the story behind HIS GARDEN: Conversations With A Serial Killer. A practicing attorney, author Anne K. Howard first contacted Howell while he was serving a fifteen-year sentence for the murder of one of his seven victims. He was about to be charged for the remaining six murders. A unique and disturbing friendship between the two began, comprised of written correspondence, face-to-face prison visits and recorded phone calls. Howell, who had been unwilling to speak to any members of the media, came to trust Howard.

It’s revealed to you that you’re the direct descendant of the devil in the White City!” This is the story of BLOODSTAINS. Following gasps throughout the audience, Mudgett politely handed back the mic and left attendees with gaping stares, wondering why he didn’t explain the statement and continue his 1 minute opportunity to speak. The crime genre savvy audience was well aware of the story in The Devil in White City, the …
