"Murder, Manslaughter, and Mayhem on the Southcoast", volume three 2000 - 2016.
By John B. "Red" Cummings with Stefani Koorey, PhD

Murder does not discriminate. Victims and killers come from all races, nationalities, genders, and age groups. Many used or sold drugs. Some killers were just “bad” people who did not regret their actions and had no qualms about how they slew their victims. There were cult murders and unsolved roadside killings of young women believed to be prostitutes. Some of these murderers were released to kill additional innocent victims. The murderers in these pages used guns, knives, axes, fists, fire, rope, and other tools—including their hands—to commit their dastardly deeds. Fathers killed their children, husbands and wives killed each other, and children murdered their parents. Police officers were killed in cold blood while doing their jobs. Murders were committed in the suburbs and the city — Such is Murder, Manslaughter, and Mayhem on the SouthCoast, Volume Three.

This book is the 3rd in the series and is a non-fiction account of 87 murders that occurred on the SouthCoast during the years 2000 to 2009, 45 murders that occurred during the years 2010 to 2016, an update of murders missed in the first two volumes (49 murders between the years 1800 to 1999), and a large listing of all known cold cases (98) from 1800 to 2016.

Other best-selling books are The Last Fling, Hurricane Carol 1954; Cream of the Crop, Fall River's Best and Brightest about Fall River and neighboring communities outstanding successful citizens; Lobstah Tales, the History of the Moby Dick/Back Eddy Restaurant in Westport and Murder, Manslaughter and Mayhem Volumes One and Two.
