FYI: Perry Edward Smith and his fellow ex-con partner, Richard Eugene "Dick" Hickock butchered a family of 4 in their Kansas farm house in the 50s. Capote was obsessed by them, more especially Smith. He attended Smith's execution in an act of "friendship" to him. In Cold Blood (pub. 1966) is probably the most famous American real crime nonfiction book.
