AN IRRESISTIBLE STRIPPER
As an exotic dancer at The Great Alaskan Bush Company in Anchorage, Mechele Hughes Linehan knew how to captivate men. Three of them were convinced she was engaged to them. Then one spring morning in 1996, one man, Kent Leppink, was found in the snow, shot in the head…
A SUSPICIOUS FIANCÉ
Days before his death, Kent had removed Mechele's name from his million-dollar life insurance policy. He wrote a letter to his family stating that, should he meet foul play, Mechele would likely be among those involved. But she wasn't charged with Kent's death. She married a doctor, moved to Olympia, Washington, and began a new life.
A SORDID MYSTERY
For years, Mechele's suburban friends never suspected a thing. She went to school meetings, hosted backyward barbeques, and was beloved by her neighbors. But authorities eventually found enough evidence to mount a case against her and an alleged accomplice. Did Mechele conspire to kill her ex-fiancé? Or is she the innocent victim as she claims?

This is a fairly straighforward, chronological account of an interesting case set in Alaska and the two trials that resulted.
Mechelle Hughes was a mom and respectable member of her community otherwise known Bobby Jo , a very attractive former stripper masterminded the murder of her fiance, Kent Leppink with the assistance of John Carlin IV, her lover who was an ex-marine and steelworker. As a stripper ,men showered her with money and presents."Like all the dancers, Mechele had to reveal just enough of herself so the men would shower her with money and valuables , but hold back enough so they would come back for more."
Mechelle wanted money and had no misgivings about how to get it-Kent's, $ 1 million insurance policy was modified after his murder to make her and John the beneficiaries of his estate. While John's passion for her meant he would do anything to have her.
This is the story of a love triangle that ended tragically with murder.It was a cold case
which was solved after ten years ,thanks to the latest advances in forensic software technology.
When, reading this book, I can't help but to look at these sorry males [the clients & suitors of Michele] as utterly confused. Many words come to mind:
