This chapter gives background information on the murder of Betty Gail Brown, a smart, studious student who attended Transylvania College in 1961. On October 26, 1961, Betty Gail went to study with friends on campus. Close to midnight, she got into her Simca and prepared to leave once they were finished, but never made it home. It wasn’t until her parents alerted the authorities that she was found just after 3 a.m., strangled to death by a brassiere.
