The discovery of the mummified body in a hidden room in an abandoned barn on land long unused outside San Angelo, Texas, starts an intriguing investigation. A journal titled A True Account, which purports to be the diary of John Wilkes Booth is found near the corpse and leads to a journey into the depths of one of the most shocking assassinations in U.S. history. The journal claims a conspiracy led by a high-ranking official in the Lincoln administration was behind Booth’s actions. The mystery intensifies when it is found that the mummified body does not belong to Booth, but the journal’s testimony is so in keeping with surviving records and documents that it is considered to be authentic.
