Writer Ann Rule Dies

Ann Rule, queen of the true crime writers, has died at the age of 83. Her daughter Leslie, who is also a writer, wrote in a Facebook post that her mother had a number of health issues. She published her first book in 1969, and sold a number of works to tv, including Small Sacrifices (which starred Farah Fawcett as Diane Downs), The Stranger Beside Me (which starred Mark Harmon as Ted Bundy), and Too Late To Say Goodbye (which starred Rob Lowe as Bart Corbin).

Earlier this year, Ms. Rule's two sons Michael and Andrew were accused of having improperly taken thousands of dollars from her. The case appears to be pending.
