Closed Eyes; Who's Killing Our Children is a story of four individual child abductions that have found no closure for the families to this day. This is a factual story with an emotional element that starts with a cold case investigation into the abduction of seven year-old little Tracey Neef from the grounds of her school in 1984. Tracey was found raped and dead a few short hours later in the cold of a Colorado winter. The author follows a trail of the bodies of children left behind by a skilled pedophilic predator and culminates with the murder and rape of JonBenet Ramsey. As each crime is researched numerous suspects surface. Circumstances, witness statements and trace evidence point to only one of these suspects. Although the author has obtained a legal opinion that the public has a right to know the identity of this suspect, his last name has been deleted from the manuscript. James Benish presents the facts of these cold case child murders in sequential order from the time of the abductions, through the years of neglected follow-ups, ignored leads, and dismissal of evidence and testimony that have left these murders in the ranks of the unsolved. This is the first time in recent history that anyone has suggested with credible logic, that there is a serial killer loose in Colorado.

About the Author:

In 1993 Jim Benish worked for the Thornton Police Department in Thornton, Colo. At this time, he reopened the Neef file,a murder that took place in 1984. After some investigation, he discovers that the initial suspect was cleared without due reason. However, Benish learns that the investigation was peppered with inexperience and error. About the Author Jim Benish has worked as a police officer and detective he has what he calls a cop s sense of criminal reality and he believes that these murders have been committed by this suspect. Throughout his career, he has written or reviewed thousands of crime reports and is proficient at recognizing and combining the elements of a crime with witness statements that many times resulted in the arrest of the perpetrator.

Review:

My God, All parents with small children should read this book. It's graphic, it gave me a picture of evil I didn't know existed. --Lorraine Swartz

The way Jim Benish tells it, if local law enforcement agencies don't manage to solve two and possibly three notorious, decades old child murder cases, it won't be because they don't have enough evidence. Benish's book does present a revealing and depressing picture of how scattershot the investigation of even a child's murder can be. Agencies don't share information, don't systematically follow up everyt lead, fall prey to what Benish terms the tunnel vision of developing one theory. --Alan Prendergast. Westword. Denver Colorado

In my experience it sometimes takes years to solve cases. Unfortunately. The reason is after the first 24 hours the case starts going cold and for every hour after that the odds of finding the perpetrator gets slimmer and slimmer Most law enforcement departments are short on man power and unlike TV shows they don t have the time of the man power to turn over every rock There was a case in Florida where I live that took over thirty years to close- and it was the beginning of the killings of Gerard Schaefer, It was solved and closed after he died. There are still victims that we know he killed but it was never pointed to him and some of their bodies have never been found This is one of the reasons among many that I write true crime it is to give the victims a voice . so they can find peace. I am sure it is also one of the many reasons that Jim Benish writes them to It would be nice to be able to close every cold case out there and offer some peace for the families who are also victims. --1. Yvonne Mason Author

I was close to Tracy Neef at the time of her disappearance. Our parents were friends, I want to know how to light a fire under the butts of whoever it takes to solve her case and give Tracy and her parents the Peace they deserve. My son now attends the school she was taken from. --Michelle Taddeo
