Richard R. Wier, Jr., a lifelong resident of Delaware and a state prosecutor then attorney general, has completed his new book “They Had to Die that Night: The Inside Story of the Investigation and Trial of Herbert F. Steigler”: a gripping and potent true story that explores the mind of a psychopathic murderer.

Richard writes, “It was decided that the investigators would go into the basement to investigate the basement doors, whether there were containers stored there which were similar to the containers used in the arson and whether any containers were missing from the basement. Upon examination, Detective Thomson observed that the basement doors were locked from the inside, preventing entry by anyone from the outside. This helped eliminate the issue of whether an intruder had committed the crimes. The investigators were astonished to see numerous and varied containers similar to the containers found in the first and second floors. There were numerous shelves and a cabinet which housed these containers. It was determined that the family would need to be called back to the house in order to assist in answering questions such as whether any of the containers on the first and second floors had come from the basement.”
