VANCOUVER, Wash. - Jan. 15, 2019 - PRLog -- Barnes & Noble to Host Book Signing for The Murder of JoAnn Dewey in Vancouver, Washington

Local author Pat Jollota will be available to sign copies of book


Before midnight on March 19, 1950, several startled bystanders watched two men force a screaming young woman into a car and drive away from Saint Joseph's Hospital in Vancouver. One of them yelled out that she was his wife and was drunk. That was the last time anyone saw JoAnn Dewey alive. Her battered, naked body washed up on the banks of the Wind River seven days later. Suspicion quickly fell on two brothers, Turman and Utah Wilson, who fled town before police caught them in Sacramento. Their arrest and sensational trial captivated and divided the peaceful community. Author Pat Jollota uncovers the chilling details of this tragic story.
