According to the book description of Blood
Trail, “On October 29, 1997, hooker Andrea "Slick" Hendrix's, beaten, naked body was discovered
in a roadside ditch near Stewartsville, Indiana. With no leads for police to follow, the case eventually went cold, but it
wouldn't stay that way. In 2003, sadistic sexual predator Joseph W. Brown claimed to have strangled Hendrix with his favorite
murder weapon: a shoelace from a woman's size-8 shoe. Ginger Gasaway, 53, met Brown at a Gambler's Anonymous meeting.
She didn't know that when she took up with him, she was gambling with her life. On August 30, 2000, Brown murdered Gasaway
and scattered her body parts across three Indiana counties. For this grisly crime, he would be sentenced to life in prison
without parole. But it wouldn't be his first time behind bars...In 1977, Brown had been sentenced to life in prison for
kidnapping and armed robbery. In 1995, he was released despite the fact that he'd beaten a fellow inmate nearly to death.
Brown later confessed that during the next five years, he indulged in a seven-state rampage of torture and murder, his victims
female hitchhikers and prostitutes. Now, doing time in Wabash Valley Corrections Centre, Brown maintains that he murdered
no less than thirteen other women.

killer's pawns ae the people he
