We are so Pleased to be having "William Pfirrman"
“Nightmare in Aurora”
Bill is a Vietnam Era veteran who for the past 40 years has lived this Nightmare. This is a true story of a battle he fought against first, the local police, and then both the local authorities and the U.S. Air Force, the second battle the result of a betrayal by his one-time friend and roommate is now being told.
Nightmare in Aurora is a fictionalized tale, based on an actual horrific and nearly deadly event and the people, who were involved, whether willingly or by sheer chance, do actually exist. From the main character, Charley and his roommate, Tom, to the lead detectives charged with seeking the truth in this tale of lies and deceit, to the crime scene investigators and the witnesses, they are all actual persons and all played a role in the search for the truth and justice. In every case, I have changed the names of those depicted here. However, the book contains many of the actual police reports written by the different police officers involved in all aspects of the investigation. Reports filed by the lead detectives in the case, by crime scene investigators, uniformed officers that had responded to calls for help from one of their own, as well as from Charley and his roommate Tom, who at first believed to be suspects, were actually victims. Also included are the reports filed by the trigger-happy, newly promoted, deceitful detective responsible for this event in its entirety. Even the statements collected from witnesses to the carnage described are included and told in their own words. However, in an attempt to allow the reader to see and understand the entire story as it unfolded, some of the content had to be dramatized. I have written the book in the first person so the reader will feel as though they are sitting across from Charley, the main character, as he takes you along as he describes his life from his earliest memories. As your reading his story, he tells of the traumas he experienced, the battles he was forced to fight growing up, and how he learned to overcome powers much stronger than his own, right up to the moment he relates the horrors he experienced in May of 1973 and the several months following. This, I believe, will allow the reader to experience with Charley everything he had to endure, during this five month long nightmare, as though they were.
Excerpt: “Nightmare In Aurora”
Page: 69 on e-book First time “Charlie was in jail”
“This was the first time I had ever been in a jail cell as a suspect of a crime. The cell, now my new home, was approximately ten feet wide and twelve feet long, painted grey and built of solid cender block construction without any windows, as it was below ground level. It consisted of two sets of metal bunk beds, anchored to the floor with two inch wide and one fourth inch thick metal strips across it and serving as the springs, though they didn’t have any “give” to them. A thin vinyl matress covered those metal strips. Each bed had a grey blanket and a thin pillow. The cell also included a picnic style table, also anchored to the floor with two picnic style benches grey and anchored to the floor. In the corner was a combination stainless steel toilet/sink. A flood light built into the wall and covered by a heavy metal grate painted grey provided light.”
