Watertown Daily Times examines murder of Katy Hawelka, parole issues, and my book about both
This photo of Katy Hawelka was provided to the Times by her family.
Watertown Daily Times reporter Ellis Giacomelli did a great job writing about Katy Hawelka and my new true-crime book, A STRANGER KILLED KATY, as part of an awesome package of stories that appeared on the print edition's front page on Sunday, April 18, (see below) and at its subscription website.
The newspaper even dipped into its archives for a gallery of photos, some of which I've never seen before.
The main story, which includes that gallery, examines the 1986 murder of Katy and her family's efforts to fight parole for her killer, Brian McCarthy, now serving time in prison. You can find the story here.
A sidebar features an interview with me about the research and writing of the book. You can find that article here.
