A Slayer Waits: The true story of a Michigan double murder
In the fall of 1955, Nealy Buchanon was a trustee at the State Prison of Southern Michigan. After being denied parole, he escaped while assigned to a work detail. After hiding out in a barn near Stockbridge, Michigan, he was confronted by the homeowner, Howard Herrick. After bludgeoning the retired chicken farmer to death, he was interrupted by Mr. Herrick's wife Myra. He quickly beat her to death with a ball peen hammer and made his escape.
After his capture thirteen months later, he was quickly sentenced to life in prison. After ten years, Buchanon began to appeal his conviction, which ultimately lead his case to the United States Supreme Court in 1984.
