Book Details

Eartha Kitt once said, “Greed is so destructive. It destroys everything.” In Junior’s story, one stepfather’s greed causes a 21-year-old man to be murdered and had this man not been stopped, there would have also been the untimely death of three other people, his wife and her two younger children. “Junior” is the story of the death of 21-year-old Henry Ridley, Jr. His stepfather Earl Green hired two men to eliminate someone he saw as an obstacle. The two men, Bo Salmon and Teddy Bear Mulkey attempted multiple times to murder Junior. In a few short months, they tried numerous times to accomplish the task, attempting an overdose, hiring a sleepy accomplice, setting a car on fire with Junior inside and finally shooting him at close range. The other person who benefitted from Junior’s death was his own mother who became $40,000 richer. Although many fingers were pointed in Margaret’s direction including the fact her first husband, Junior’s father, died under mysterious circumstances, she walked away a free woman.
