VISIONS OF TED BUNDY
In Tallahassee, Florida, early one cold winter morning in 1979, a mad man entered the Chi Omega sorority house near the Florida State University campus, and viciously attacked four women. Two would die. A fifth woman was brutally attacked just blocks away.
Authorities urgently searched for the killer leaving no stone unturned. If psychics provided persuasive links to the killer, why not use them?
Joseph, a young music student, has visions of the killer. Lieutenant George Brand, an investigator on the task force, promised the victims’ families he will do what it takes to catch the assailant. Joseph brings his visions to Brand and, within weeks, Theodore Robert Bundy is arrested.
Helen Baxter, a young newspaper reporter, is unexpectedly approached by Joseph, who claimed to have provided key psychic details that led to the capture of Bundy. Would Bundy have been captured without Joseph’s help? Was there a psychic link between Joseph and Bundy?
This is the true story of the hunt for, and capture of, Theodore Robert Bundy.
ECHOES FROM THE MIND
In August 1990, at the beginning of the fall semester, five college students were brutally slain in their southwest Gainesville, Florida apartments. An unknown killer, or killers, paralyzed the city for months. As the police searched for clues, Helen Baxter performed her own investigation with the help of several unusual sources: Psychics.
Convincing members of the task force to use information gleaned from psychic intuition proved to be difficult but ultimately led Helen, a team of investigators, and two psychics down a frightening path of discovery.
Would the psychics be able to provide the police with enough credible information to stop the killing?
Helen Baxter was certain of one thing: some experiences defy explanation.
Susan Waller Lehmann hails from Miami, FL and attended Florida State University. She discovered writing and journalism while in college. In 1981, she refused a job with the nascent CNN thinking Who on earth would want to watch a 24-hour news channel? Her path in life now determined by the idea that she would be a real journalist instead, she put her interview skills to work as a writer, publisher, private investigator, and death penalty mitigation expert.
Perhaps because the temperate climate of the South attracts crazies, her life intersected with two serial killers, and, as a result, her first two books recount her stories of Ted Bundy in the aftermath of the 1978 Chi Omega murders, and Daniel Rolling during the 1990 Gainesville Student murders.
