Vindication?
Placeholder Image
Few crimes have attracted the attention and fascination of the public like the gruesome 1970 murder of an Army wife and her two young daughters at Fort Bragg, N.C.; the husband and father, Capt. Jeffrey McDonald, a Green Beret physician, was subsequently convicted of the murders and has been in prison since 1979. For all these years he has maintained his innocence, claiming the murders were committed by four mysterious people who invaded his army post home, stabbed him and killed his family during a drug-induced rampage. Adding to the intrigue has been the book “Fatal Vision” by prominent author Joe McGinnis, who says he began work on the book in an effort to establish McDonald’s innocence but slowly and surely came to the conclusion that he was the perpetrator.
