A Killer in the Family is, as the book states, "Like a movie with no ending".
Brad Bishop was the killer next door, that by all outward appearances had the perfect family. A pretty wife and three sons who excelled, as their parents did, in almost everything they did. Spending much of their lives on the ski slopes and tennis courts of exoctic places that Bishops job afforded them.

With his wife, mother, and three sons found in a shallow grave in North Carolina bludgeoned to death, buried and burned, the hunt was on. And for almost 40 years, that hunt has continued. Sightings from around the globe have all come up empty. No real trail leading the FBI to the whereabouts of Brad Bishop.

Is he still alive? Was he also a victim; laying decayed in some unmarked grave somewhere in this vast world? Or is he still living under the radar, "hiding in plain sight" as some law enforcement officers on the case believe?

Brad Bishop will be 80 years old on August 1st of this year. Would he still be able to be in hiding, or have natural causes claimed him. Could he really still be alive and not sought out medical care, medications, had surgery, all to do with the natural progression of age, that could have gotten him captured?

So many questions, and after 40 years no concrete answers.

This was a well researched story, and even though it's a short one, it packs a lot of relevant information in it's 49 pages.

I hope there is closure to this case, one way or another, not only for his family that he, allegedly, killed in cold blood, but for the many law enforcement officers over the years that have dedicated a lot of their time, and career, to finding Brad Bishop.
