Publisher's Summary

Using court transcripts, personal interviews, and police records to retrace the key events of the case, this journey to uncover the truth about what happened to Richard Davis provides a disturbing, eye-opening look into the problems of today's military.

After surviving tours in Bosnia and Iraq, Davis was mercilessly tortured and ultimately murdered before his remains were set on fire in the woods of Georgia. Four members of his own platoon were arrested for the crime. When one was asked why they set Richard on fire, his answer was both cold and revealing: "Because, that's the way we got rid of bodies in Iraq."

There is no other case on record in which American soldiers have killed one of their own in such a twisted manner. They were home. They were alive. So, the only question is, why? This is not only the exploration of the heinous murder of a soldier; it is also a call to action for US citizens to provide support and necessary programs for veteran reentry and re-assimilation into US society.

Richard Davis

Richard and family, I salute your service in defense of our nation! The appalling injustice to you and your family is a disgrace. From one soldier to another loyalty above all else except honor. Rest In Peace Richard, you are not forgotten!

I can't stop thinking about it

This story has stayed with me. I can't stop thinking about it and I cannot believe this is happening to our military members and their families. I saw the movie about this case but books always have more. Cilla McCain's description of how he was killed is profound. It made me so damned mad about how they made him beg. The description of his father's pain is overwhelming. And when his mother found out I could feel her screams. The author did more than just write a true crime story, she became an advocate for the family. She fought to get this young soldier's remains returned to them for burial. I couldn't believe his bones were being kept on a closet shelf in the District Attorney's office! That should be a crime in itself! Now I know why the flag is upside down on the cover. It is a call of distress. If someone is murdered in the military they have nobody who can help.
