On a sweltering afternoon in 1966, Charles Whitman ascended the University of Texas Tower with enough firepower to hold off an army. For the next ninety-six minutes he methodically gunned down forty-five strangers, killing fourteen. But as shocking as the rampage that made worls headlines---and the smiling photograph on the front page: a handsome, all-American Eagle Scott and U.S.Marine. A bewildered nation asked: How could this golden boy be a mass murderer?
