Trailed : one woman's quest to solve the Shenandoah murders / Kathryn Miles.


"An account of the unsolved murder of two women in Shenandoah National Park, by a journalist with unprecedented access to all key elements of the case, and a story that reveals the challenges of wilderness forensics and the failures of our justice system"-- Provided by publisher.
May 1996. Lollie Winans and Julie Williams entered Virginia's Shenandoah National Park for a week-long backcountry camping trip. The couple had met and fallen in love the previous summer while working at an outdoor program for women. During their final days in the park, they descended the narrow remnants of a trail and pitched their tent in a hidden spot. After the pair did not return home as planned, park rangers found their tent slashed open, their dog missing, and both women dead in their sleeping bags. The murders were never solved. Miles discovered conflicting evidence, mismatched timelines, and details that did not add up. With a growing sense of obsession, she began to uncover the truth, and believes the true culprit is a known serial killer. -- adapted from jacket.
