Interestingly enough, "Sqi" was a female action hero in a card collection of crime fighting characters. Writing mostly as a passionate hobby for over 30 years, this was the "ONE" story she was absolutely compelled to share with the world.
A tantalizing, 23 year-old unsolved homicide case, turned into over six years of research, ultimately leading back to a much older unsolved murder in Wyoming in 1949 and a mysterious death in Oklahoma in the 1970's. Eventually, all roads led back to, or were connected with the person who was finally arrested, tried and convicted of Jack Humphrey's murder, nearly twenty-nine years after his death.
Whenever innocent blood is spilled in a cold, bizarre manner the emotional, mental and physical devastation is made even greater by either intentional or unintentional actions we naturally blame on "the system". Sad to say, it's not the system, just some people in it, the choices and decisions they make. Mishaps, mistakes, legal or local bias, laziness, political or personal agenda's more often than we realize, only repeatedly, re-victimize families or people we love or that love us.
What followed the gruesome, senseless, slaying of Jack Humphrey was one of the most shocking, cruel and riveting persecutions of a victim's family anyone could imagine. How did the murder of an honest, hard-working family man of average means, become such a politically sensitive, unsolved murder case and remain so, for over a quarter of a century? That's the billion dollar question you ultimately must answer for yourself Throughout this tumultuous journey it's clear that good men and women then and now, risk careers, their families, lives and reputations every day, either fighting for truth and justice or falling to the temptation of the oldest and still deadliest of sins: Lust, Lies, Sloth, Greed and Murder! For any one left to navigate through a very tricky, risky, tedious and complex maze, filled with paper and people, Justice for Jack is a must read!

I personally went through part of this story with the characters listed. I was a very close frined of Larry and Kieth Humphrey, I also lived in the house Jack was murdered in shortly after his death. I patched the hole in the wall where the police had cut out the sheetrock. I also found a piece of the skull in the closet approx 6 feet away. It tore my heart out to read this book, as I grieve for the family. God give them rest!!!!!!!!!!!!
