Amy Petulla is familiar with the Corpsewood murder case from both legal and paranormal standpoints. She began practicing law when David "Red" Lomenick hired her as an assistant district attorney. The Tony West murders were a topic of local interest from the time she first arrived. Amy was a trial attorney for twenty years. She is the owner of Chattanooga Ghost Tours, Inc. Amy has a BA in psychology from Emory University and JD from the University of Georgia.
The book covers background on the victims and other key people as well as the town, details about what happened that night, the subsequent trials and appeals, the property, the alleged haunting, and the aftermath. Law enforcement sources furnished Petulla with photos from the crime scene, and the book contains over 50 photos, including several never published before, along with many details never shared publicly before, and corrections of some of the common misconceptions about the victims and the events. Petulla shared the infamous self-portrait done by Scudder some time before his death, bound and shot five times in the head, just as he was found. All on Georgia
Another unique aspect of Petulla's book is her examination of
other bizarre events that have occurred in Trion. She said she got
permission from Stephen King to compare Trion to the town of Castle
Rock, a nexus for paranormal and supernatural events featured in
many of King's works. Times Free Press
