I looked forward to rereading this book to refresh my memory but mainly to find out what happened afterwards. The gruesome murders of Kate, Kara & Erin Eastburn is extremely heartbreaking.

Reviews about Innocent Victims (Onyx True Crime, Je 357) (7):
MEGA FREEDY
This is an awesome book! One of the better books I've read in awhile. The writer doesn't bore you with what I call useless filler knowledge like other authors often do. This book had me from page one. I didn't want to stop reading although I was falling asleep.
I'm actually undecided on my opinion of the guilt or innocence of the convicted, exonerated, convicted! What I am sure of is that the DNA - ALL OF EVERY SAMPLE, NEEDS to be tested, independently, out of the state of North Carolina. My heart sunk to my feet when I read how the interior vaginal swab came back as it did (I won't give it away in case anyone doesn't know the story/case like I hadn't). A big part of me still believes the lab was corrupt and VonStory was as well (probably still is, only worse). I think that the samples given by the accused got swapped with the vaginal swabs or rubbed together. I don't think that dirty lab with its dirty techs are above it! I don't think VonStory or someone close to him, that truly believed in him and his convictions about the accused, that that person wouldn't be above some dirty play to make things go his way....thinking they were helping put a baby killer away, ya know?
Anyway, wrapping it up, I like fed this book and I'm getting ready to purchase another from this author because I think he just rocks at writing like that.

I read this book years ago when Hennis was acquitted. It seemed pretty much cut and dried at the end. A man who was found guilty on eye-witness testimony and sentenced to death had been vindicated. A wrong had been righted. When I heard DNA had been matched to Hennis, I was surprised and wanted to know more, so when I saw the book had been updated and re-released, I dove in. I read from the beginning so I could read all the details offered again. I had also heard news about problems in the SBI lab because I live in North Carolina, but never put the two together because the news of the DNA findings and the problems at the lab were heard years apart. I understand the importance of DNA results and had accepted that the killer had been found without doubt. However, if that is the case, why does the military oppose the testing of hairs, fingernail clippings, combings and blood-stained towels at the expense of the defense, which should support the DNA? Especially in view of the problems found in over 200 cases by the SBI lab, they should be happy for any other evidence showing Hennis is the guilty party. If the purpose of a trial is to find the truth, which is what I've read many times, why not make sure this is the truth? It won't cost the State and Hennis has no objection. Unless it shows another specific suspect, it doesn't jeopardize the State's case. They've already stated much of what was tested doesn't implicate Hennis. My heart goes out to Gary Eastburn, Jana, Katie, Erin and Kara, who lost their family or their lives in this horrific crime. They deserve justice. The defense was allowed to retest the DNA match and didn't release their findings; if the results showed the DNA was not their client's, they would certainly announce it. I feel 97% sure Hennis committed this brutal, merciless crime against a helpless woman and her children. I would still like to see the other evidence tested by an independent lab. I also read "Bloody Lies: A CSI Scandal in the Heartland" recently, which adds to the slight doubt I have about how helpful people convinced of a person's guilt want to be in convicting him. There's too much pressure to "win" for those involved, the truth, if it doesn't support their view of the case, may be the last thing they really want to find. I found it another fascinating look at the reality of how criminal justice is carried out.

I'm a huge true crime fan and read Innocent Victims when it was first published 20 years ago. Despite Mr. Whisnant's talent for writing and ability to explain events accurately, the ending left me confused and unsure. I looked forward to rereading this book to refresh my memory but mainly to find out what happened afterwards. The gruesome murders of Kate, Kara & Erin Eastburn is extremely heartbreaking. It was a horrible crime followed by a horrible, sorely lacking investigation(s) and then 3 trials; none of which really provided clear answers. In all honestly there were so many instances of conflicting or unclear evidence I'm still "on the fence' as to Tim Hennis' guilt or innocence. I lost count of the times I wanted to scream at the attorneys and judges because there was so much that could and should have been done. I realize forensic testing is costly but it just boggles the mind of the average person why the judge refused to allow more, if not all, of the evidence to be tested...even after the defense arranged to pay the fees.

As a True Crime book, this one is a stunner. So many twists and turns in this story and at each juncture I was gasping. First, whenever children are murdered, it brings a whole new layer of hideous to the crime. And the defendant seemed like such a stand-up guy! You want to believe he could not have possibly committed such an atrocious act. You breathe easier when he's finally acquitted and set free--until DNA testing comes into the picture! The ups and downs in this true story are staggering! Who or what to believe? Then add in the involvement of the military in the entirety of the crime and you as the reader are left breathless. I will not forget this one for a long time.

This was a really good book but what a roller coaster ride. I could have sworn Tim Hennis was guilty at the first trial, not guilty at the second, and then to find out he is on death row again for this crime was spine tingling. I had thought he may be innocent but could not get past Patrick Cones identification and mostly the fact that the guy he saw got into a white Chevette. I don't know if we will ever truly know what happened that night.

The horrific murders of a young wife and two of her children became marginalized while the trial took us over and constantly led us in many directions. We never learn why the family was so cruelly murdered. We begin to doubt our justice system. We question witnesses and their ability to remember. We grieve for a defendant and his family. We crave answers that will not satisfy. I finished this true story feeling numb.
