Murder on Birchleaf Drive: The True Story of the Michelle Young Murder Case by Steven B. Epstein
Was Jason the monster who bludgeoned his beautiful wife to death, leaving his toddler alone for hours to walk through her blood? If so–would he get away with it?
To the outside world, Jason and Michelle Young lived a storybook life–an attractive couple with great jobs, a beautiful home, a precocious two-year-old daughter, and a baby boy on the way.
Soon after the 29-year-old pregnant mother’s brutally beaten body was discovered on their bedroom floor, a very different picture emerged. Of a marriage crumbling at its foundation. Of a meddlesome New York mother-in-law whose running critique left Jason frustrated and angry. Of a 32-year-old man who behaved like a frat boy rebelling against adult responsibilities.
MURDER ON BIRCHLEAF DRIVE documents the gripping tale of a family’s marathon quest for justice, confounding crime scene evidence, persistence of law enforcement officers, and riveting courtroom combat.
