Gary Cartwright, R. I. P.

One of my Texas writing heroes, whose career I've followed for 55 years or more.

Gary Cartwright dead at 82: Texas Monthly writer known for true crime: He specialized in true crime stories, such as spectacular case of Fort Worth millionaire Cullen Davis, charged with shooting his estranged wife, Priscilla, and murdering her lover, Stan Farr, and her teenage daughter, Andrea. Cartwright turned the lurid drama into the book “Blood Will Tell,” which was adapted into a TV miniseries.

I read Blood Will of the few "true crime" books I thought had a reason for existence.
