Small-Town Mother of Two Helps Police Solve Her Sister’s Twenty-six-Year-Old Cold Murder Case
Sweet Scent of Justice is a faith-based, true crime memoir. Twenty-two years after her sister's death, Debbie Wilson set out on a secret quest to uncover the truth about her sister's unsolved murder and bring her killer to justice.
What made Debbie persevere after so many dead ends, false leads, and missing evidence? Despite the roadblocks created by cover-ups or just plain incompetence, the quest to catch the killer never died inside Debbie’s heart. It never died for good reasons that Debbie would only learn after the case closed. How does Debbie resolve the vicious way Kathy died with the loving God she and her sister worshipped so dearly?
Debbie and Kathy sang in the youth choir and traveled with the church youth group around Louisiana and surrounding states, proclaiming the love of God. They had memorized Scriptures since they were toddlers, and these Scriptures came to Debbie’s mind when she needed to hear them the most. But were they true? Did God really take her burdens away? Did he really work all things for good—even Kathy’s murder? Did Debbie forgive her killer like God asked her to?
Discover the answers to these questions in Sweet Scent of Justice, a true-crime memoir by a sister who experienced how God actually works, beyond words, in the lives of His children when they need His guidance the most. It offers hope and encouragement for those experiencing trials in their lives, and it takes the reader on a three-year quest for truth and justice in a small Louisiana college town.
