Murder on the IndyCar Circuit

Case Went Cold For Six Years Until Special Crimes Prosecutor Took It On

 

DENVER May 21, 2019: Cynthia Albrecht, the executive chef of the Penske-Marlboro racing team and darling of the IndyCar circuit, went missing on October 25, 1992-the night before her divorce from Michael Albrecht became final. Drivers and racing crews from across the country converged on "The Brickyard," site of the Indianapolis 500, to help search for her.

 

As the head mechanic for the Dick Simon racing team, known as "Crabby" across the race circuit, Michael had a reputation for bullying and abuse.  He'd immediately become a suspect in Cynthia's disappearance. But with a strong alibi, there was nothing authorities could do when he decided to take a vacation to Florida and skip a scheduled polygraph test and the search for his estranged wife.

 

Nor could law enforcement charge him when Cynthia's body was found a few weeks later in northern Indiana-minus her head. The case went cold for six years until a newly elected prosecutor allowed his deputies to charge Michael Albrecht with murder. But would they be able to prove his guilt?

 

This true crime legal thriller written by one of the prosecutors, Larry Sells, and journalist Margie Porter, runs at full throttle and will leave you on the edge of your seat right up to the checkered flag at final verdict.

Larry Sells is Special Crimes Prosecutor for murder trials in Indianapolis, Indiana. He has been interviewed on Investigation Discovery, America's Most Wanted, and Oxygen: Snapped. 

 

Margie Porter's mother was "working through" an abusive marriage when she died in 2002. She starved to death. Margie agreed to work on this book because the barbarity of the crime enraged her, and she adores people who fight for hopeless causes.

BEIJING — Trading starts Monday on a Chinese stock market for high-tech companies that play a key role in official development plans that are straining relations with Washington.

Washington talks could soon yield spending, debt deal

Jul 23, 2019

WASHINGTON — Washington negotiators are closing in on a budget and debt deal that would stave off the chance of a government shutdown this fall and allow Congress to speed through legislation to increase the government's borrowing cap. The emerging two-year framework would satisfy demands for an outline to guide congressional work on more than $1.3 trillion in agency operating budgets. It would still need to be fleshed out in further negotiations, and puts off battles over political land mines like immigration and President Donald Trump's unfulfilled promises of a border wall. The chief advocates of the deal include House...

S&P 500 notches another record after a muted, mixed day

Jul 23, 2019

NEW YORK — A wobbly day of trading ended with meager gains for U.S. stock indexes on Monday, enough to nudge them further into record territory, as the curtain rose on what's expected to be the weakest earnings reporting season in years. Financial stocks fell even though Citigroup said it made more money last quarter than analysts expected. Energy stocks were also weak, but gains for technology and health care stocks helped tip the S&P 500 and other indexes past the highs set on Friday. The S&P 500 rose 0.53 points, or less than 0.1%, to 3,014.30 after drifting between...
