Description

For a quarter of a century, the truth about the deaths of five babies in a single family--who all died suddenly within a space of six years--lay buried. But in 1995, after an ongoing investigation by a district attorney who would not accept the parents' claims of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, the children's mother was found guilty of murder. More than a vivid account of infanticide revealed, "The Death of Innocents" also uncovers some important information about SIDS and the industry that surrounds it. of photos.show more
