Eric Volz Discussion and Signing 

When: Wed., May 5, 7 p.m. 2010
On Nov. 21, 2006, Nashville native Eric Volz became the most hated man in Nicaragua. Volz, the publisher of a bilingual magazine, was accused of raping and murdering ex-girlfriend Doris Jimenez. Despite mountains of evidence and an alibi placing him more than two hours away, Volz was arrested, tried and convicted of the crimes. Sentenced to the maximum 30 years, Volz spent 13 months in a Nicaraguan prison before an appeals court overturned the sentence, bowing to pressure from Volz’s friends and family, as well as the US State Department. In Gringo Nightmare, Volz describes a web of corruption and political power plays that kept him in prison and Jimenez’s killer free. He will sign and discuss the memoir.
