Abstract

I didn’t know Christine Casilio well. She was not a close friend, just an acquaintance and a neighbor in an
old apartment building we both lived in on Riverview Avenue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This made telling

her story even more difficult, but I felt that telling it from beginning to end, and how we both hopped a

plane for a vacation in Las Vegas together, was the key to pulling out my memories of the time we spent

together in a town that has no mercy on anyone. In the process, I pulled out some memories that I didn't

want, and they frightened me even more----this was, and still is, an unsolved mystery!

Feminist Theory of crime

My book is not a typical true crime read, in that it does not have a court room scene, nor does it have a prosecution of a murderer. It is an unsolved murder mystery in true form. There are suspects; some of which stand out plainly, and some that lurk as the unnamed acquaintances that were just there----ones that no one may ever remember.

There are many unanswered questions in the murder of Christine Casilio, but the ones that look you in the eye and stare you down are the ones that haunt me…. Like, why would two Las Vegas homicide detectives walk into a gruesome scene of a partially naked woman hanging halfway into a water filled bathtub; her head submerged and covered up by the bed comforter, and then walk away casually and never have it declared a homicide? If they had, it would today be an official cold case, but it isn't----it is forgotten. Christine Casilio is forgotten----that is why I wrote my book.
