Character description

Susan Nason lived in the San Francisco area.   She disappeared just before turning 9 in 1969.   Her body was found seventy days later, and the crime was never solved.   Twenty years later, her childhood friend Eileen Franklin-Lipsker claimed to have recovered the memory of her abusive father murdering Susan and another crime..  George Franklin was found guilty and served six years in prison, the first person to be convicted of murder solely on the basis of recovered memory.   Owing to errors in the trial and doubts cast upon his daughter's testimony, he was freed.  The case created a nationwide furor over recovered memory.
