    A face on a poster, a name in the news, an inexplicable tragedy. A promising young man goes out one warm summer evening and is found dead - murdered - less than 24 hours later. No motive. No clues. No answers. Most people reflect briefly on the disturbing headlines, perhaps say a silent prayer of safely removed sympathy, and go on with their lives.

    Perhaps America's best selling true-crime writer, Ann Rule, asks can the female really be deadlier than the male?

Their son, Bjorn, looked just like his dad, and they were raising Liysa's son by a previous marriage.
