The Only Survivor of the Derrick Todd Lee Murders

The author’s description: Divine Justice: The Dianne Alexander Story is inspired by an actual event. It gives in depth details about my encounter with The Southwest Louisiana Serial Killer “Derrick Todd Lee.” But most of all, the book speaks about divine interventions from the beginning to the end of my horrible ordeal. I pray that this book will help you to see that God is a God of “Love and Forgiveness.”

Fedora-wearing APD detective featured on Oxygen’s ‘The Price of Duty’ July 30

Over the course of a quarter century, Danny Agan was the dapper symbol of murder and mayhem on the streets of Atlanta.

As a newbie 25-year-old homicide detective in 1979, Agan donned a fedora because he thought the squad should look sharp and stand out. It set the tone for the unit for decades to come – it was known as the Hat Squad. 

Although Agan had a hand in some 800 homicide investigations, it wasn’t a murder that gnawed at him through the years. It was a series of attacks 30 years ago by a serial rapist, crimes that went unsolved for decades until he got the investigation reactivated after his retirement.  

The attacks, his frustrating and fruitless investigation, and then the eventual
