Book Description

2 Oct 2009
On the night of November 12, 1998, in San Luis Obispo, California, attractive blonde college student Rachel New house was walking home alone when suddenly a stranger appeared in front of her. His visage was a skull-face: a grotesque Halloween mask. Beating her unconscious with his fists, the attacker threw her into his pick-up truck, took her to his secluded canyon cabin and raped her - still wearing the mask. Newhouse was hog-tied and left to strangle to death. On March 11, 1999, in the same town, a stalker who had been shadowing college student Aundria Crawford, 20, broke into her apartment, pummelled her into insensibility, and carried her away in his truck to his canyon lair. There, she was raped, tortured, and murdered. As Californians reacted with panic and outrage to the two disappearances, parole officer David Zaragoza paid a visit to one of his charges, Rex Allan Krebs, 33, a violent serial rapist who'd served only ten years of a twenty-year sentence in Soledad State Prison. After sending Krebs back to jail for violating his parole, Zaragoza discovered Crawford's eight ball keychain on the premises. An intensive search of the canyon discovered the two victims' bodies buried in shallow graves on the paroled rapist's property. Confessing, alcoholic sex-and-slaughter addict Krebs conceded, "If I am not a monster, then what am I?" A jury answered his question in May, 2001, sentencing him to death by lethal injection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ann Rule, step aside! There's a new true crime King in town! 28 Jan 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
With only his second true crime book, Corey Mitchell has officially supplanted Ann Rule as the leading voice of true crime. Mitchell's incredibly detailed book on the Rex Krebs murder case is fascinating and provides a much needed breath of fresh air in what has become an increasingly stale genre. There are so many levels to this book that it will stay with you for weeks after you have closed it. Rape, abuse, lax parole reviews, personal safety, and alcoholism are just some of the few topics discussed here. And to top it off, Mitchell has written the first truly scary true crime book in years. I found myself awake at 4:00 AM two nights in a row while reading and could not go to sleep. This truly tragic story needs to be read by everyone. And DEAD AND BURIED should be receiving all kinds of attention and awards. Do yourself a favor and pick up this book now!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best true crime I've read in a long time 22 Jan 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have been looking for a good true crime book for a long time. Something I could really get into and not want to put down. I didn't get a good book.....what I got was a great book. Well written it kept me interested from start to finish. I have read so much nonsense that I was begining to wonder if anyone would ever write another good true crime. Mr. Mitchell explained the story in such a way that in some instances you could feel what was about to happen. While I have no sympathy for Rex Krebs, I feel his parents should be sitting next to him on death row. In my opinion, it was the two of them who helped create the monster in Rex Krebs. It's a cautionary tale for women that the boogeyman does exist and he could be around the bend or outside your window.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Read 30 Nov 2003
By Lucas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Dead and Buried is the best true crime book I have ever read. Corey Mitchell's easy to read style of writing and extensive research made this a book I could not put down. He gave you detailed and interesting background information on Krebs as well as the police interrogations. This book reads like a novel, and you feel like you get to know Krebs as well as the victims and their families. I highly recommend this book whether you are a true crime reader or not!

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the Read!!! 14 May 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It took me a few hours to read this book from cover to cover and
I thought it was very well written and easy enough to follow.
The story is about the events leading up to and around the disappearance of two young women (different times) and the man who brutally raped and murdered them. It is a truly gruesome and sad account of what went on in their last moments as well as an overview of Rex Kreb`s life as a child through to serial killer.
However, the only loose end in it I felt was the part the writer wrote about another "female student" going missing around the same time, but has never been found since. I feel this was irrelevant and not linked to Rex Kreb so should have been ommitted all together. Other than that it is interesting to read it from a psychological perspective as I found the comments provided by the psychiatrists` used in the trial very informative and educational in regards to the definitions of sexual sadism and anti social disorder personality. Brilliant read although I really feel for the victims and their families.I hope that they know that there is still alot of good out there....

5.0 out of 5 stars The most gripping true crime account I've read.... 10 May 2005
By K. Brent - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read this book about a year ago and remember how graphic and how frightening (yet how mesmerizing!) it was ... I finished it over a weekend, and I couldn't get the story out of my mind for a long time. Mr. Mitchell is one of the best writers of this genre to come along in a while---I'm certain that any regular reader of True Crime will recognize his unique, gripping style. This book is very well researched, with a good selection of relevant photos, and it will allow you to follow the murderer's turbulent life up to his graphic crimes. The author's description of Rex Krebs reveals a twisted and self-destructive sexual deviant who recognized his evil tendencies (and appeared to want to stop fulfilling his urges), yet he never seemed to avoid acting out his fantasies. Certainly, Krebs received his just reward for his crimes, but it was still a very sad event in the lives of the many, many close friends and families involved. This is definitely a must-have for any True Crime buffs!
