AG seeks author's notes in old Neb. murder case

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska attorney general has subpoenaed the notes and other materials gathered by a Colorado man who penned a book about a 1995 killing.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports the request was sent last week to David Strauss, of Arvada, Co. His
2010 book, "Barbarous Souls," details the rape and murder of 21-year-old Nancy Parker in her Lincoln home.

Parker's husband, Darrel, was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison. He was pardoned in 1991.

Parker, now of Moline, Ill., has sued the state for wrongful conviction.

Much of the evidence supposed to be on file from the murder investigation has gone missing. So, the attorney general's office is seeking Strauss' notes.

Strauss says his book suggests Parker is innocent and he'll comply with the request.
