This review is from: And the Sea Will Tell (Mass Market Paperback)
I have become somewhat obsessed with reading everthing I can on this true murder mystery. I have read ...And the Sea Will Tell approximately 5 times. After the first time, I disagreed with Mr. Bugliosi and thought that "Jennifer" (not her real name) was guilty just like Buck. But after re-reading it and watching the movie many times, I too, have concluded that "Jennifer" is innocent. I am a criminal justice student and my decision was based on the fact that Muff's body was dumped in the lagoon. Why were the bodies dumped there? Because Buck was the one who committed the crime, not "Jennifer". And since she did not know the Graham's true fate, Buck could not dump the bodies in the Pacific as that would have required loading the bodies on the Sea Wind or the Iola where he could have been caught by "Jennifer". The only logical conclusion is that "Jennifer" did not know of the grisly nature of the crime. If she knew and/or participated in the murders, why would they dump the bodies in the lagoon with the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean available to them? Dumping the bodies in the Pacific would have assured them that the bodies most likely never would have been found. Secondly, why take a chance and remain on the island under the pretext of searching for the bodies when another traveler could have happened upon them at any time? I think the only thing "Jennifer" was guilty of was being naive about life and picking the wrong men. Being naive does not a killer make. This book is excellent for the heart pounding reading it provides, and the rest of us to see our criminal justice system at work.
