In Sugar Land, Texas, a happy family occasion turns into a mysterious massacre, in this chilling true crime story by the bestselling author of Pure Murder.
It was a night of celebration for the Whitaker family. Their son Bart was graduating from Sam Houston State University. But when Bart’s brother, Kevin, opened the door to their house, a masked intruder shot him point blank. His mother took the next bullet, followed by Mr. Whitaker, then Bart. Blood was everywhere, but somehow Bart and his father survived . . .
To the cops, the story didn’t add up, and their investigation uncovered a stunning web of lies. Bart was living a double life, and hadn’t been enrolled in college since his freshman year. Instead of attending classes, he spent his days playing video games with friends—and planning the murder of his family to inherit their million-dollar estate . . .
In Savage Son, Los Angeles Times–bestselling author Corey Mitchell takes us inside this chilling murder case to reveal the twisted motives of a seemingly All-American boy-next-door who turned into a cold-blooded killer.
