Orville's Revenge The Anatomy of a Suicide

 
9780692305300: Orville's Revenge The Anatomy of a Suicide

The story of Orville Gibson, a Newbury, Vermont farmer whose frozen body was found in the waters of the Connecticut River on March 26, 1958, has remained controversial for over half a century. The investigation into Gibson’s death and the subsequent trials and acquittals have made the case one of Vermont’s most famous “murder” investigations. In his new book on the case, retired Judge Stephen B. Martin of Barre, Vermont offers the fullest account of the events leading up to the victim’s disappearance and death, including the individuals involved, and the expert testimony that was brought to light during the court proceedings. Martin points out from the start that the vigilante theory was a product of flawed “conventional wisdom.” He explains in detail how it was created and then overthrown. Where were the investigators with open minds? Why did they twist the facts to suit their theories instead of relying on observation to draw inferences based on what they observed? Arthur Conan Doyle’s story The Problem at Thor Bridge bears a striking similarity to the Gibson case. In Martin’s view, the mystery of Orville Gibson could have been solved without arousing controversy by a detective of intelligence and method like Sherlock Holmes.

About the Author:

A sixth generation Vermonter and a 1959 graduate of George Washington University Law School, Stephen B. Martin practiced law with Richard E. Davis in Barre, Vermont for 10 years. In 1970, while he was a member of the House of Representatives, he was elected a Superior Judge by the Vermont Legislature. In 1985, the Vermont Supreme Court appointed him to the post of Administrative Judge for the Trial Courts. He served in that capacity until his retirement in 1998.
