On May 27, 1969 in the sleepy power town of New Canaan, Connecticut, ten-year-old Mary Mount, the daughter of an IBM research scientist was abducted and murdered. Several persons including serial killers became suspects. A year and a half after Mary's abduction and murder, John Rice, a 17-year-old honor student and Boy Scout in New Canaan, brutally murdered four members of his family. Rice became another suspect in Mary Mount's murder. Rice found not guilty of the murders of his family by reason of insanity was released back into society after spending only five years at Connecticut's Whiting Institute for the criminally insane. The Wind Cries Mary reveals more shocking twists to the story and enlists Criminal Profiler Greg Cooper for his expert analysis concerning Mary Mount's killer and the possibility of John Rice as her murderer.
