Murder on Cell Block 9 is the riveting true story of Idaho drug king Richard Holmes, who was brutally murdered during a prison riot as guards stood outside watching.
About the Author:
L.D. Webb grew up in the relatively small town of Caldwell, Idaho. She is a former member of the Caldwell Police Explorer program, which gives her a unique perspective in regards to Richard Holmes, who was her uncle. She was able to see the story from the family’s perspective, and could also understand the law enforcement point of view.
Knowing the details surrounding Richards’s life and death has always made Ms. Webb especially interested in educating people about the devastating effects of drug use. After her step-son, Steven passed away from a meth overdose in 2008 that interest turned into more of a nagging feeling that she could not ignore.
