Colette MacDonald, then pregnant, and her two young daughters were beaten and stabbed to death in their home. The prime suspect was Colette’s husband, a charismatic military doctor and Green Beret named Jeffrey MacDonald.   MacDonald invited writer Joe McGinniss to write a book about the case. Fatal Vision, published in 1983, has become a true crime classic, but not without controversy.
