Dr. Benjamin Gilmer joined a rural clinic only to find that its previous doctor shared his last name. Dr. Vince Gilmer was loved and respected—until he strangled his ailing father, shocking the community. As Benjamin looked deeper into Vince’s case, he became obsessed with discovering what pushed his predecessor toward violence. The Other Dr. Gilmer: Two Men, a Murder, and an Unlikely Fight for Justice explores our shared human fallibility, made worse by the failing prison system. Author Maureen Callahan says “Benjamin Gilmer masterfully peels away the layers of a long-closed murder and drops us into an unbelievable true story of medical mystery, mental illness, and the terrifying injustices of our justice system.” Sponsored by the City of Fairfax Regional Library Friends.
