Posed for Murder

Posed For Murder
by Meredith Cole

"I have never killed so many people in so many ways." Lydia McKenzie has this thought as she hangs the photographs in her first solo exhibit in New York. Her photos are black and white re-creations of death scenes from unsolved murders in New York. Lydia got the idea for this exhibit while reading the book Lost Lives, a novel about cold cases. Lydia re-created the murder scenes using her friends as models. During the opening party at the Bulan Gallery, the police tell Lydia that her friend Marie LaFarge was murdered. Marie's body was found dressed in the same clothes and posed the same way as she was in Lydia's photo. One evening Lydia comes home to her apartment to find that someone had vandalized it and left a photo of another friend, Jenny. In this photo Jenny is wearing the same clothes and is posed as she was in Lydia's photo. Lydia fears for her life and begins her own investigation. -- recommended by Donna G. - Eiseley and Walt Branch Libraries
