Point Blank Range
When Haverstraw, NY police respond to a 911 call the morning of September 24, 2012, they discover Tammy Palmer has been shot to death at point blank range. Tammy’s father-in-law, Eugene Palmer, becomes the prime suspect when Eugene’s sister reveals to police that he confessed to her that he ambushed Tammy and went on the run. Initially police believe Palmer escaped into the adjacent wilderness of Harriman State Park, but no trace of him is found. Then when bloodhounds lose his scent at a road, authorities are left to believe that he was picked up by someone who helped him flee. Eight years later, Eugene Palmer is one of the FBI’S Ten Most Wanted fugitives, with a $100,000 reward on his head, and Tammy’s grieving family waits for him to be found, dead or alive.
