Summary of the Book 'Death Comes But Twice':

A Death in White Bear Lake is a true crime book by journalist Barry Siegel published in 1990. The book recounts one of the most notorious cases of child abuse ever prosecuted in the United States the murder of three year-old Dennis Jurgens by his adopted mother Lois Jurgens. The case was significant because the murder was committed in 1965 yet Lois Jurgens was not charged with the crime until 1986. Lois Jurgens was convicted of murder in the third degree in 1987.
