With Mark Horner, author of September Sacrifice

Mark Horner

Investigative journalist Mark Horner is a nationally recognized expert on the sensational and tragic Hossencofft murder case. As an Albuquerque TV reporter, he started pursuing this fascinating story in September, 1999. His must-read book on the still-evolving case, September Sacrifice, lays out the twisted and often complicated story of domestic violence, con artists, bloodthirsty shape-shifting reptilian space aliens, and the perils of Internet flirting. In this compelling interview, Mark summarizes the case and tells:

  • How he received a death threat–and a visit from a mysterious intruder– as a result of his involvement
  • How he gained the trust of sources and witnesses involved in the case
  • How he successfully organized a massive amount of research and documentation
  • Why he was able to get inside his characters’ heads so completely
  • Why he wasn’t able to write everything he knows on the subject

    I just listened to Mark’s interview. Wonderful! Mark is one of the most incredible men I know. He did a story for us while in New Mexico and with his investigative skills and help it all come to a great end and garnered him an AP award. God bless Mark and may he write many more fabulous books. He’s number one in mine!
