Through revelations from friends and family, to the cold hard facts from police and FBI agents, Dave attempts to come to terms with his mother’s senseless murder and the horrific realities of domestic violence.
It would take nearly eight years for the authorities — with assistance from the television show “America’s Most Wanted” — to capture Mr. Riccardi. In 1994 he was convicted of the murders and sentenced to death. The California Supreme Court overturned that sentence in 2012, because of a juror selection issue, and Mr. Riccardi was then given life without parole.
