Cabin 28 in the for- mer Keddie Resort, seven miles from Quincy, has been torn down, but the notoriety and mystery of the grisly killings remains. More than 31 years have passed since the horrific scene that 14-year-old Sheila Sharp stumbled upon when she returned home from a sleep-over at a neighbor's house and found the brutal- ized bodies of her mother, brother and his friend bound, stabbed and beaten with a hammer. Now a mature adult, Sharp has released her sto- ry, titled "How to Survive Your Visit to Earth," from Free Spirit Books. The book is co-written by Sharp's hus- band, Sifu Richard Whittle. Sharp's book is mainly a self-help treatise discussing how she overcame the trau- ma, anger, fear and victim. ization she experienced af- ter the murders.
