When Irene Silverman was reported missing on July 5, 1998, prosecutors immediately had two suspects: a man by the name of Manny Guerrin, who had been renting an apartment in the millionaire's seven million dollar Manhattan mansion, and his assistant, Eva. Silverman had gone so far as to sketch a picture of her dark, private, and very strange guest, who aroused her suspicions so much that she noted his activities on paper.
Police soon traced the mysterious tenant's true identity: Kenneth Karam Kimes, a twenty-three year old man with a police record. But the real culprit, the mastermind, was "Manny's" assistant, Eva - also known as Sante Kimes. This mother and son team had left a trail of cons, thefts and murders all the way from the Bahamas to California over the years, and now had found their way to New York. It was only a matter of time before the special NYPD "Silver Task Force" and the prosecution team put together a powerful case against Sante and Kenny for the murder of Irene Silverman.
As the case unraveled, Sante Kimes' true nature slowly revealed itself: a cold-blooded, calculating killer who lived according to her own mad rules, she conned her way into millions with convoluted schemes, treachery, and subterfuge and left a cross-country trail of bodies. She is one of the very few people in the 20th Century U.S. to have been convicted of slavery, and has been accused of crimes even more bizarre than that. Worst of all, she dragged her weak, but equally evil son into her devious acquisition of houses, furs, and cars, and trained the boy in the subtle craft of thievery and murder.
