ASU Book Group to discuss book on Buddhist Temple massacre


February 06, 2012

The ASU Book Group will discuss “Innocent Until Interrogated: The True Story of the Buddhist Temple Massacre and the Tucson Four” at its next meeting, at noon, Feb. 29 in the Piper Writers House.

The author, Gary Stuart, is a local attorney and adjunct professor at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at ASU.

In this first book-length treatment of the Buddhist Temple Massacre, Gary L. Stuart explores the unspeakable crime, the inexplicable confessions, and the troubling behavior of police officials.

His research included a review of the complete legal records of the case, an examination of all the physical evidence, a survey of three years of print and broadcast news, and more than 50 personal interviews related to the case.

The ASU Book Group is open to all ASU faculty, staff and students. It meets the last Wednesday of the month in the Piper Writers House on the Tempe campus. For more information contact Judith Smith, jps@asu.edu.
