An upcoming book could give new insight into the 1959 murders of the Clutter family near Holcomb, Kansas.  A recent ruling allows the state detective’s son to publish his father’s personal notes.

Writer Kevin Helliker explores this new evidence and other findings in a recent Wall Street Journal article.
