From the Author

September Sacrifice is the culmination of a five year investigation condcucted by this author. In researching the story, I interviewed many of the people associated with it. I also scrutinized thousands of pages of police and court documents, including transcripts. The prosecution, alone, had more than 400 people on its witness list at one time.

The Hossencofft case ultimately found its way to the national media. Dateline NBC, A&E's American Justice, The History Channel's Forensic Files and Court TV all produced stories about it.

Because of the complex layers within the Hossencofft case, no hour-long television program can come close to capturing the entire story. This is not an overstatement. Having worked closely with many of the producers of those national TV programs, I know they'd wholeheartedly agree. Not even Court TV's estimated 40 hours of trial coverage could knit the story together in a uniform way.

It is my hope that the reader will discover that September Sacrifice provides the first comprehensive landscape of the Hossencofft case, doing so in compelling fashion while allowing the reader to connect the dots of a most tragic story.

Rest assured, the book contains a bounty of new information. And if you're a fan of CSI or CSI Miami, then you'll likely be interested to know that the Hossencofft case is considered the most in-depth forensic case in the New Mexcio's history. The forensic evidence not only includes blood and saliva, but a vast array of materials, including; pink deer hair, art sand, and feathers.

The book also includes the suspects's collective interest in UFOs and David Icke's teachings about shape-shifting reptilians that he says rule much of the world.

Not forgotten in September Sacrifice is the life and death of the victim, Girly Chew, nor the tiny child who lived at the center of this frightening story.
