Description

Known as the “Bitter Blood Murders,” in 1985, first cousins and lovers, Susie Newsom Lynch and Fritz Klenner led police and SBI on a chase that ended in an explosion that killed them and Susie’s two young sons. It was the culmination of a bloody feud that had already left five dead, decimating two prominent families in a Southern Gothic tragedy of Shakespearean proportions.

This case was first reported in a series of articles by journalist Jerry Bledsoe, who then researched the families for three years before releasing his #1 New York Times best-selling opus, Bitter Blood: A True Story of Southern Family Pride, Madness, and Multiple Murder

This incredible true crime classic is still in print to this day, as well as available on kindle:
