The day Tiffani Horn’s mother, brother and a family friend were found murdered, her father, Motown engineer Lawrence Horn, had a solid alibi – he was on the other side of the country. And while the multi-state surveillance and wiretaps helped build a case, it wasn’t until detectives stumbled into a book called Hit Man: A Technical Manual for Independent Contractors, that police suddenly had what they called "a blueprint for the murders."
