Zupansky soon realized he was party to what amounted to an explicit confession.
Despite the initial awkwardness, Zupansky had long been anticipating the meeting.
At the time, Zupansky was a single father, and the host of a weekly interview program on the local college radio station.
The friend put the two in touch, and from there came the visit in jail and the letters.
Zupansky admits he was out of his element when he began the book.
A half hour later, Zupansky’s footsteps echoed down the prison’s tiled corridor until he reached the end of the hallway and emerged back into the sun.(One detective who walked into the bathroom with Teerhuis later cried over the carnage he witnessed.) Teerhuis was taken into custody and charged with Greene’s murder.News of the atrocious crime caught Zupansky’s attention, and he began following its developments, clipping articles from the Winnipeg papers.The two sat and drank in the bar, realized they were attracted to each other, and went back to room 309 of the nearby Royal Albert Arms Hotel.At approximately p.m., reeling from a cocktail of alcohol, prescription medication and crack cocaine, which he’d been using throughout the evening, Teerhuis was overcome with a sinister urge.
