The True Story of Anti-abortion Killer James KoppBook - 2008
An award-winning journalist covers the life story, and three-year manhunt, for one of the FBI's most wanted killers While ultimately convicted of the murder in 1998 of Dr. Bernard Slepian, in Buffalo, New York, it was the shooting in Canada, three years earlier, of another abortion doctor that brought the then unknown James Kopp instant notoriety as a criminal suspect. Part detective story, part psychological drama, Sniper tells the fascinating, often harrowing story of how the Canadian police and FBI eventually caught Kopp after an intense three-year international search. It also sheds light on how this son of a Marine, an avowed celibate with loyalties only to the fetus, became an anti-abortion radical and finally, a killer, in the name of human life. Jon Wells (Hamilton, ON, Canada) reports on crime for the Hamilton Spectator. In 2004 he was named Journalist of the Year in Canada for his stories on James Kopp.
