Greek Tragedy in America's HeartlandBook - 2000
On October 17, 1999 Lissa Roche, the editor of Hillsdale College Press and the daughter-in-law of the conservative school's president, Dr. George Roche III, was found dead in Hillsdale's Slayton Arboretum. Police promptly ruled her death a suicide. But when the authorities suppressed portions of her autopsy, refused to perform a ballistics test on the .357 that ended her life, cross-check key alibis, or find the keys that Lissa supposedly used to access her husband's gun, Lissa's death became an unresolved mystery. Based on exclusive interviews with family, friends and faculty, previously unpublished documents and in-depth research with insiders, this book examines an extraordinary tragedy and lets the reader be the judge.
