Bullied to Death? Interview with author Judith A. Yates

    A community began to question the laws and definitions regarding “bullying.” Should schoolyard bullies be held legally responsible for causing a suicide? Can a rough family history guarantee a tragedy? And just what is bullying, anyway? Perhaps Sherokee’s death was an accident … perhaps there was a sinister truth that has yet to be told. True crime author Judith A. Yates peels back the sensationalism and rumors, revealing the truth of what happened that day in Mankin Park, attempting to answer the question everyone was asking: did Sherokee Harriman kill herself because she was bullied? Exploring the truth about “bullicide” while telling Sherokee Harriman’s story, taking a look at the role of social media in our lives, and defining the myriad definitions of “bullying.” Revealing bullying does exists … it lives within the family dynamic, it exists in the mental health care system, walks the hallways of the educational system, and grows within all peer groups.

Murder in My Hometown: Interview with Rebecca Morris

    In her new book, A MURDER IN MY HOMETOWN, Rebecca Morris writes about her investigation into the unsolved murder of a high school classmate in Corvallis, Oregon fifty years ago. Set against the backdrop of 1968, one of the most eventful and dramatic years in America, “A Murder in My Hometown” is part true crime and part memoir.
