True Crime Author Jacque Reeves says, "[Dr. Amy Bishop Anderson] was somebody who was well respected in society and at the university, and something pushed her over the edge."

When tragedy strikes without warning, its instigators become burned in public memory.

Dr. Amy Bishop Anderson will reside there permanently.

Reeves explains, "Even though everybody said she was brilliant, she was focused in what she was doing, there was something about her personality that was not quite normal."

Reeves is looking to capture that piece of public memory.

She's studied the shooting at the Shelby Center relentlessly.

She hopes to complete a book on the case.  After all, it's one few will forget.

Reeves says she's drawn to the mystery surrounding Bishop.

"This is a very interesting case," explains Reeves.  "I like to know when somebody has done a crime like this, why? What makes them do that?"

But those answers may never emerge.

"I don't think anybody would ever know," says Reeves.  "I don't think she knows.  In fact, she doesn't remember pulling the trigger.  She thought after it was over that she still had a meeting with one of the members of the faculty.  She was in total denial.  We may never know the answer to this."
