Paperback-Stack-With-Tablet_Reign of Inj


On September 12, 2001, Michele Harris went missing from a small town in upstate New York. She has never been found, and the mystery surrounding her disappearance remains. Four years after she went missing, her wealthy husband, Cal Harris, was arrested and charged with her murder. 

With neither a body nor a murder weapon, Cal was shockingly tried and convicted of her murder. Then new evidence surfaced. His conviction was overturned, and a new trial granted. But once again, he was convicted and sentenced to 25 years to life in prison. That conviction, too, was overturned on appeal. The saga continued as Cal went on trial for the third time. This one ended in a mistrial. 

By the time Cal went on trial the fourth time, Michele had been missing for nearly 15 years. 

Defense investigator, David M. Beers, worked on the Cal Harris case from start-to-finish. His account, REIGN OF INJUSTICE, walks you through the details and events of the case never before revealed. It provides an inside view of the scandalous case facts you will not find elsewhere, including why he considers Cal’s story a reign of injustice.

A Very Informative Book

"From what evidence there was, I don't see how Cal could have been convicted. There was no body, no murder weapon, a plethora of possible suspects, and no proof that Michelle was even dead. And what was Cal's motive? He had already agreed on a divorce settlement, so that couldn't have been his motive. It also appears that the New York State Police zeroed in on Calvin and ignored other suspects. This was especially true when Kevin Tubbs came forward with evidence that should have cleared Cal."

Unique Perspective from a Private Investigator

"Good read. Kept my attention. Unique perspective from a PI involved in this case. Book focuses more on the behind the scene work of a Private Investigator in a murder case than on the criminal trials. He worked for the Defense on a case that went to trial four times."

When Revenge Almost Triumphs Over Justice and Reason

"This book blew the cover off of what was happening in the courts and what was reported by many outlets as there was no real evidence, only an overt vendetta to convict a man against whom no real evidence existed. David Beers lays out the effort to expose the truth in incredible detail, thoroughly exploring the evidence and what it really meant in this case. It's definitely worth a read to discover what can happen when justice takes a back seat to revenge and to see a case where the truth took time to come out and free an innocent man."
