"BLATANT INJUSTICE" became the decision of the officials and townsfolk, in the aftermath of a very decent ladys murder, just a few days before Christmas of 1964. Olive Lewis was preparing her husbands lunch when she was shot in the head. As officials sat in her living room, viewing her dead body and her grand-babies Christmas outfits on her sewing machine, they made a decision to violate the laws of the land, and lead the townsfolk into a Silence Mode, in a deliberate Cover-up. But, why would Olives own brother, a prominent attorney, align with this deceptive plan, to over-rule the Coroner, and call this ladys obvious murder, a suicide? A Preponderance of Evidence is required by law to rule Suicide. The Coroner and R.N. agreed, "This is, "Blatant Murder." Then, No-Investigation-Occurred; no written report nor state-mandated autopsy was allowed. No case file of suicide or murder was made for this lady; it was later stated in a search of records, "Its as though she never lived and never died."
Olives twenty two year old daughter was married, with two young children; she was also, a new Christian, who knew her mother and Jesus Christ and loved them both, very much. She needed the, truth, the whole truth and nothing less; she trusted Jesus words that, those who ask, seek and knock will find," and that, "truth will set you free."
Her quest to discover what really happened to her mother and to the town that she had grown up in and loved, became a lengthy navigation through trauma. This journey led her into numerous states, countries and continents, comprising decades and, convinced her that PTSD is indeed, "Treatable and Beatable, but it does require work."
