A True Story of Kidnapping, Contract Murder, Police Corruption and Innocence—The Joyce Lukezic Story
by Joyce Lukezic and Ted Schwarz
The tranquillity of Joyce Lukezic's affluent Phoenix neighborhood was shattered by the violent deaths of two residents. Joyce, a young housewife, was arrested for the crime. Thus began a two-year nightmare for Joyce, who would see her calm world destroyed and buried beneath lies and deceit by her friends, her husband, and even the police and prosecutors who were supposed to protect her rights.
