Who Killed Nancy

On October 12th, 1978, New York Police discovered the murdered body of 20-year-old Nancy Spungen, slumped under the bathroom sink in a hotel room. Ex-prostitute, heroin addict and girlfriend of Sex Pistols' bassist Sid Vicious. In a trial by tabloid newspapers, Vicious was pronounced guilty before noon the next day. But the case was never brought to trial when Sid himself died of an overdose six months later. Though many cops felt uneasy about it, Sid was assumed the killer, and the case was closed. At the request of Sid's mother, who committed suicide in 1996, rock author and punk expert Alan G. Parker devoted himself to discovering what really happened in that hotel room - and this is what he found out.
