Publisher's Summary

On Thursday, December 15, 1994, Joann Katrinak and her three-month-old son, Alex, went missing from their Catasauqua, Pennsylvania, home. Four months later, when their bodies were found in a lonely patch of woods, the police would launch a three-year investigation leading to the arrest of Patricia Lynne Rorrer - a young mother who had never met either victim - as the monster responsible.
In what would become Pennsylvania's first use of mitochondrial DNA in a criminal case, Patricia Rorrer was quickly tried, convicted, and sentenced to life in prison without parole. But did the jury make the right decision? Is Patricia Rorrer truly guilty? As new evidence continues to surface, including allegations of prosecutorial misconduct and evidence tampering, that question requires an answer even more.
With a subject matter and storytelling style reminiscent of the hit podcast Serial, Convenient Suspect will appeal to a wide audience. The audiobook reveals information never before made public - information gathered directly from more than 10,000 official documents, including Pennsylvania State Police reports, FBI files, forensic lab results, and the 6,500-page trial transcript. Through four years of intensive research, countless interviews with those involved, and hundreds of letters, phone calls, and personal visits with Patricia Rorrer, the truth about the evidence used to convict her can finally be revealed.

Very very one sided

All evidence supporting guilt was glanced over while all other evidence was questioned as a huge sweeping conspiracy. “As with Andy’ is not a defense. There seemed to be a lot of diverse evidence against her. And when the hair was tested after the case and matched to patty, the author argues ‘why was the victim’s dna not also on the hair’. What a stretch, very biased

Amazing Story!!!

Wake up innocence project!!!
This book was so well done. Incredible story! The hard work of the author is evident throughout the story. The only thing annoying on audible was the amount of times the performer said quote.

Absolutely amazing book, heard about it from the podcast True Crime Garage, if you are able to listen to an audiobook, then you are able to listen to a podcast, so go get that listened to!

Probably the most gripping audiobook I've ever listened too, to the point where I sat in my car for 15+ minutes parked outside my home because I needed to know how it finished.
