Overview

The story of a small town football hero whose obsession and steroid rage led to murder is revealed in “this fine true-crime tale” (Publishers Weekly).
 
A star athlete with a winning smile, Pernell Jefferson had no trouble attracting women. But his charming exterior belied his brutally violent tendencies. After walking away from a football career with the Cleveland Browns, he was addicted to steroids and nearly destitute. That’s when he set his sights on Regina Butkowski.
 
Pernell obsessively called and showed up to her home unannounced—and he battered her when she turned her attention toward other men. When Regina disappeared, the Butkowski family knew who was responsible. But even after police discovered Regina’s charred remains in a small Virginia town, they refused to question the man most likely linked to the brutal crime.
 
In Deadly Goals, veteran author Wilt Browning explores the devastating details of Pernell Jefferson’s past, the disturbing nature of his crimes, and the Butkowski family’s pleas for justice that led to his arrest.
 
Deadly Goals was previously published under the title Where the Wildflowers Grow.
