Family's capture of serial killer Adam Leroy Lane chronicled in book
Edited on Thu Mar-03-11 06:02 PM by RamboLiberal
They were hailed as heroes, a regular family that had captured a serial killer.

But if they were heroes, why did they feel so vulnerable, angry and guilty?

These are the demons Jeannie McDonough wrestles with in her new true crime account, Caught in the Act.

The book, out today, March 1, chronicles the McDonough familys brush with truck driver-serial killer Adam Leroy Lane, whose trail of death includes the 2007 murder of Darlene Ewalt in West Hanover Twp.

Clad in black, Adam Lane was leaving behind the anonymous roadside city of idling diesels, twangy music and bad coffee. He was venturing out into the night, where families slumbered in nicely-spaced suburban homes.

Once Lane slipped past the harsh glow of the halogen lights, he likely pulled on his ninja mask, completing the disguise.

At a Halloween party, Lanes getup might have elicited laughs. The scruffy, beard-stubbled North Carolina truck driver made for an overweight ninja. Picture John Belushi trying to be menacing.

But for the bearish father of three daughters, who even some friends said detested women, this was no costume. These were his hunting clothes. The neighborhoods before him were his hunting grounds. And the people specifically the women who slept in those tranquil houses were his prey.
