Murder at Fort Devens ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
"In 1979, a young soldier at Fort Devens in Massachusetts, Elaine Tyree, was brutally murdered in her apartment. Her husband, Green Beret Bill Tyree, was convicted of hiring another soldier to kill her, and both men were sentenced to life in prison. Soon after this 'open-and-shut' case was resolved, however, documents began to emerge that pointed to something more sinister. Murder at Fort Devers digs deep to expose a tale that the military would rather you not hear. A key witness, tracked down in Louisiana, reveals that he saw someone other than the convicted killer fleeing the crime scene. He was never asked to testify in the case. And it is now known that the courthouse was bugged during the probable cause hearing. What motivations lies behind these events? Is it possible that Mrs. Tyree was recruited by Army Intelligence to spy on other soldiers and murdered because of it?"--A&E Homepage excerpt.
