This tragic recounting of the murder of Denise Amber Lee details her last moments and the man responsible for her death. Plumber Michael King attacked Lee in her home and tortured her for hours, despite Lee’s two calls to 911. Her death led to the passing of legislation streamlining the emergency system.
A PRETTY YOUNG WOMAN . . .Denise Amber Lee was a 21-year-old happily married mother of two little boys. She had her whole life ahead of her...until an intruder broke into her Florida home. Within a few short hours she was savagely terrorized, murdered, and buried naked in a shallow grave near a desolate swamp.A DEPRAVED KILLER . . .Michael King, a 38-year-old out-of-work plumber, was a ticking time bomb. For years, neighbors called the police on King, complaining that, among other things, he'd thrown battery acid in their pool and slashed their tires. Denise's fate was far worse. In a horrifying act of cruelty, King bound her with duct tape, raped her repeatedly, then shot her dead.A TRAGIC FAILURE. . .Incredibly, Denise managed to call 911 twice during her abduction. Eyewitnesses and her distraught husband also called, but a slow, inefficient system tragically failed her. As a result, Florida passed the Denise Lee Law, setting voluntary standards for 911 systems. King was sentenced to death. But for Denise and her loving family, it was too late.Includes 16 Pages of Shocking Photos
