The book Beautifully Cruel by M. William Phelps is a true crime biography about Tracey Richter Roberts. She murdered 2-year-old Dustin Wehde in cold blood, execution style, in her bedroom. Why? She needed a prop to try and set up her first husband for a contrived murder-for-hire scheme, in order to gain an advantage over him in a child custody fight.
The book is a masterpiece, for the most part, it faithfully conveys an accurate history of the case. However, it is not without several conspicuous errors that are in need of correction. Michael Roberts, the ex-husband of the murderer has reached out to M. William Phelps, in an attempt to correct the errors in future editions. His open letter can be viewed here:
