Overview

Evil Among Them

"Skinwalker" is the Navajo term for a demon in human form. But no mythical beast was as frightening as the true-life fiend who for four years spread fear throughout the deserts of the Shiprock, New Mexico area. The nightmare began on Thanksgiving 1996, when a feast of horror was served up to Joseph Fleming, 24, and Matthew Trecker, 18. Both young men were stabbed and slashed to death in an alleged attempt to cover up a robbery.

Body Count

The reign of terror continued as a woman was subjected to a grotesque sexual assault--but somehow managed to escape with her life. Donald Tsosie, 40, wasn't so lucky. After leaving a local watering hole, he was savagely bludgeoned, stabbed, and left to die. On June 9, 2000, Betty Lee, 36, was stabbed and then slain with a sledgehammer after being stripped of her clothing.

Desert Dragnet

Justice finally arrived in the form of county detectives Bob Melton and Tyler Truby, whose investigation zeroed in on hulking, hate-ridden Robert "Bobby" Fry, a misfit with a taste for brutality. Aided by Navajo trackers, Melton and Truby conducted a sleepless two-and-a-half day manhunt to bag the killer before the trail went cold. Then, like the Hero Twins of local legend, they brought a monster's murderous rampage to an end. . .

About the Author

Robert Scott discovered that true-crime writing is incredibly interesting, as "You have to be part journalist, part detective and part analytical writer for the true crime market." Robert's books have detailed the lives of killers and victims, police detectives and FBI agents—from California to Iowa, from the Canadian border to the Mexican border. They've depicted stories from a murderous male/female team in the High Sierras to a psychopathic killer on the mean streets of Los Angeles. They've also told the stories of victims, from an exotic dancer, to a beautiful but naive college girl, to a loving and vulnerable ranch wife. "The lives of the victims, and the detectives who brought them justice, are vitally important in these stories," Robert said. "I absolutely believe in a comment related to me by an Assistant United States Attorney, 'To the living we owe respect, to the dead we owe the truth.'" Robert is currently working on true crime books set in Oregon and Northern California. Robert has been on many television shows on Discovery ID, A&E, E!, and Tru TV.
