Little 2-year-old Renee Goode was buried in early 1984 with a ribbon in her hair, surrounded by her beloved stuffed toys. Her autopsy report stated she died from ‘unexplained medical reasons’ while spending the night at her father’s house. Annette Goode, her distraught mother, knew in her heart that her estranged husband had killed their daughter, but she had no proof. Renee’s grandmother, Sharon Crouch, agreed with her daughter: she refused to accept that her otherwise happy, healthy granddaughter had died from ‘natural causes.’
Intrigued by the case, police investigator Sue Dietrich enlisted the FBI and battled the skepticism of Texas law enforcement officials. Eight months later, Renee’s little body was exhumed from its resting place to reveal the dark secret her grandmother had long suspected: she had been murdered in cold blood by her own father. To the Last Breath documents, in chilling detail, the true story of the events leading up to and following the murder of Renee Goode by her own father. If you love true crime stories, you’ll be fascinated by this incredible story of three women who dared to make a difference—by seeking justice. Photos.

The book was a good read until the end when they did NOT tell how many years Shane Goode go for killing his daughter!!!!
I was also VERY DISAPOINTED that the book writeen 14 years ago had not been updated before it was re-printed.
The book was very interesting. What I don't understand is that they convicted a man on just the fact that he was the last one to see the baby alive. The author never stated how he had killed the baby. If the child was asxphysiated it could also have been one of the older children that might have done it by accident. Shane was despiable and a nutcase. More than likely he did kill the baby but I sure would have like to have known how he did it.
On a similar case, it's too bad that Casey Anthony couldn't have been convicted on being the last one to see Caylee Anthony alive. No one was held responsible for her drowning, if she truly drowned in the family pool.
