How pristine Salisbury, CT., almost surrendered to local hoods.
In the early morning hours of October 23, 1986, Earl Morey was shot to death in a small town in the Northwest Corner region of Connecticut. Salisbury, Connecticut, a seemingly calm, pastoral and peaceful community, has a sordid, evil underbelly. The lavish weekend homes of wealthy New Yorkers stand only short distances from the dilapidated homesteads of the local working class. This is both a story about a murder, and a revealing study of the juxtaposition of the "haves" and the "have-nots," in small-town America.
