The son of the man convicted in the Signal Mountain murders has written a book on the topic.
Trever Casteel has written Statement of Facts: State Vs. Casteel.
Frank Casteel always maintained that he was not guilty in the 1988 triple murders on Walden’s Ridge where Earl Smock, Richard Mason and Kenneth Griffith were shot and killed. Frank Casteel was given a life sentence, and he died in state prison last year at the age of 71.
Trever Casteel said the ebook is now available for preorder and the book will be available for ordering on April 14 at TreverCasteel.com or Amazon.com
He said, "On a hot day in July 1988, Frank Casteel and his wife planned an outing on property they had recently acquired atop Signal Mountain in Tennessee.
They would be celebrating their wedding anniversary.
"Several years later, that day's events would be rewritten. Despite crime scene contamination, a complete lack of evidence, and a span of missteps and misconduct by investigators and prosecutors, Frank would be charged and eventually wrongfully convicted of a triple homicide.
"In Statement of Facts, learn the truth about the circumstances and aftermath of the Signal Mountain Murders. Follow the failure of justice for the families of the victims, the injustices heaped on Frank Casteel, and his 20-year fight for his freedom."
