9781455819072: Sleep in Heavenly Peace

Cold Storage In May 2003, an Arizona man who’d bought dozens of sealed boxes at an auction of unclaimed property made a horrifying discovery: the bodies of three plastic-wrapped infants, one of which had become mummified over the years. Police traced them to Dianne Odell, 50, a mother of eight children, who admitted the babies were hers but claimed that they’d died of natural causes. Justice Deferred In 1989, police had found the remains of a long-dead infant in a suitcase in the trunk of a car Odell had abandoned. The statute of limitations on manslaughter had saved her then from prosecution. She maintained that the fetus was the product of a rape by her father, and stillborn. Baby-Killer’s Fate Odell said her own domineering mother had forced her into teen prostitution and murdered what she viewed as “bastard children.” Both parents were dead and unable to contradict her. Would Odell’s stories sway the jury and buy her the mercy her babies were never granted? Or would she be forced to face the consequences of bringing innocent lives into the world – only to end them in cold blood...

Don’t miss this incredible story of murder, family betrayal and one mother’s quest to keep her secret children hidden for over 20 years.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW EXCERPTS WITH DIANNE ODELL INCLUDED IN BOOK!

From the Author:

"I had the opportunity to interview convicted baby killer Dianne Odell. What I heard during our months of conversations was remarkable. This is a story of the utmost betrayal: by Odell, her own mother and father, along with, according to Odell, the law. What Odell reveals in this book will shock readers into understanding that justice isn't always settled in a court of law—that sometimes guilt is as simple as saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. What shocked me most was that Odell had become her own worst enemy. Without her, the state really had no case. She, essentially, gave the prosecution the information it needed to go after her. ... I took a life of a woman who had been pregnant thirteen times and studied it. The one question I asked over and over—one that readers will certainly want answered—was: Why did you tote those dead babies around with you in boxes for nearly 25 years? What drove you to do that? If she wasn't hiding anything and hadn't broken the law, as she had claimed, why not give the children a proper burial? Odell’s answers were incredible ... to be honest, some of the most chilling things I have ever heard."
