    SECONDLY, INCOMPETENCE: LEADS THAT ARE NOT FOLLOWED UP, CLUES THAT ARE MISSED. THIRDLY AND PERHAPS MOST DISTURBING OF ALL, A LACK OF WILL: A FEAR OF TURNING UP EVIDENCE THAT COULD COMPROMISE THOSE IN HIGH PLACES. In the case of Martha Moxley, a girl of fifteen who was brutally beaten to death in 1975, all these factors may have come into play. Whatever the truth of the matter, a few years after Martha’s murder the case went completely cold. But over two decades later, the publication of a best-selling novel based on the murder reignited interest in the case.

    Park’s wife, Jenny, began to sob as he was led away, still dazed and disoriented. It seemed that Park had never expected to be convicted after so long – before the verdict, he had told reporters that he expected to be released, and would be back soon to give interviews about his experience. The judge sentenced him to life in prison, and told him that he must serve at least fifteen years before being considered for parole. He was not convinced that Park had conducted the murder in a premeditated manner, but he felt the degree of violence he had exhibited, as well as his cold-blooded disposal of the body, and his covering up of the murder for so many years, causing untold grief and anxiety to his wife’s family, warranted an extremely long prison sentence.

    Before he went, he made sure that his victim could not escape by locking him in a bedroom closet. Alone in the closet, Thad must have felt his time was running out, but he was determined not to give in to despair. He summoned all his willpower, and told himself that he would survive. He found an old electric guitar in the closet and managed to batter the door down with it. Somehow, he managed to drag himself downstairs again, and although he kept fainting with pain, was able to reach the telephone.
