|We began our 2001 odyssey with a visit from our
key historical consultant, Dr. Ed Epperly, and his wife, Joyce. Dr. Epperly has studied
the history surrounding the axe murders for over 45 years. The couple took a three-week
break from the sub-zero temperatures of their home in Decorah, Iowa, and traveled to
"sunny" Southern California. It was raining. They stopped in Los
Angeles for a few days to see the sites and survey progress of Villisca:
Living With A Mystery.
The Epperly's viewed about an hour of the documentary rough-cut on the flat-bed editor at Fourth Wall, in addition to examining archival materials, photographs and other visuals that will be used in the finished film.
