Murdered | [Paul Alexander]

Murdered

LA Police Officer Stephanie Lazarus became the center of national attention in a sensational trial in Los Angeles, in March 2012, as the accused murderer of Sherri Rasmussen, her ex-lover's new wife of only three months. What had once seemed unthinkable, had suddenly become a reality. Nels Rasmussen, the victim's father, had, some 20 years prior, pleaded with LAPD to take a look at Lazarus as a possible suspect. His daughter had said that Lazarus had been "stalking" her, but Rasmussen was summarily dismissed by police and told that he should "Stop watching so much television."

Audible Editor Reviews

Murdered is the true story of the coldblooded killing of Sherri Rae Rasmussen, a twenty-nine year old newlywed. Paul Christy's thrilling performance leaves the listener at the edge of his seat. Christy's voice reflects the journalistic and no-nonsense quality of Alexander's words. The narrative is detailed and thorough, without giving too much away too soon. The descriptions of the crime and the 20-year cover-up that followed are told in the manner of a police procedure report and are sure to hold the listener's full attention. For those who enjoy true crime narratives, this is a story worth listening to and one not easy to forget.

Publisher's Summary

LA Police Officer Stephanie Lazarus became the center of national attention in a sensational trial in Los Angeles, in March 2012, as the accused murderer of Sherri Rasmussen, her ex-lover's new wife of only three months. What had once seemed unthinkable, had suddenly become a reality. Nels Rasmussen, the victim's father, had, some 20 years prior, pleaded with LAPD to take a look at Lazarus as a possible suspect. His daughter had said that Lazarus had been "stalking" her, but Rasmussen was summarily dismissed by police and told that he should "Stop watching so much television." After five years, he simply gave up.

The story here begins on the night of February 24, 1986 and involves three people, certainly one of them innocent; the victim - Sherri Rae Rasmussen - was bludgeoned, bitten, beaten, and then shot to death in what was made to look like a botched robbery. Yet the only thing missing from the scene was a marriage certificate.

In 2009, the Cold Case squad in the same building as Officer Lazarus re-opened the Rasmussen case and examined the DNA swabbing from the bite-marks on Rasmussen’s arm. They discovered that the saliva could only have come from a woman. Then, they started to investigate Lazarus based on Rasmussen’s suspicions on record in the file.

This is a book that one wishes were fiction. It is written point-of-fact, with all of the details of the case laid out neatly before the listener in police-procedural style. The listener becomes the jury. The most shocking part of the story is the identity of the killer.
