NC Book Tour on a Different “The Inferno” Starting Tonight
October 15, 2012
“The most detailed, intimate and complete look at a death row prisoner that I have encountered.” – Sr. Helen Prejean, author of Dead Man Walking on The Inferno: A Southern Morality Tale
The Rev. Joe Ingle, a United Church of Christ minister and author of the new book The Inferno: A Southern Morality Tale, will be speaking across North Carolina over the next week. The Inferno chronicles Philip Workman's 25-year journey through “the Tennessee killing machinery” for the murder of a police officer that Workman did not commit. Workman, framed by Memphis police and prosecutors, had evidence unearthed post trial that the victim was accidentally shot by another police officer, that the only eyewitness recanted his testimony and admitted he was not at the scene of the crime, and that medical examiner’s evidence was withheld. Rev. Ingle was the late Philip Workman's spiritual adviser and with him through six death warrants.
