Episode 20: The tragic story of Bruce McKay and Liko Kenney

Ah, bucolic small-town life, where everything is wonderful. NOT. More like, where everything can be a real cluster f***. Take Franconia, New Hampshire, in 2007 for instance. Mix in a messed-up kid, a hard-ass cop and a vigilante gun-nut bystander and the only outcome there’s going to be is trouble. On May 11, 2007, Like Kenney shot Franconia police Cpl. Bruce McKay, then ran him over, at a traffic stop after McKay pepper-sprayed him. Bystander Greg Floyd then fatally shot Kenney with McKay’s gun.

And Kelly Ayotte, New Hampshire’s attorney general at the time, called Floyd a hero and, the next day, let him off without an investigation or any charges.

But that’s only the beginning of the story that inspired Maureen’s first mystery novel Cold Hard News.
