The new book on the Marty Tankleff case--"A Criminal Injustice" by Richard Firstman and Jay Salpeter--is due out Tuesday, and is making news today for something Det. James McCready reportedly said on an unaired portion of the 2006 'Dr. Phil' show on Marty's case.
According to the New York Times and Newsday, during a taping of the show McCready was asked if it was true that Joey "Guns" Creedon paid him $100,000 to keep the investigation from focusing on Creedon, as alleged by Creedon's son. Newsday reports:
McCready told Newsday that the allegation that he made the statement is a lie.
