(( The story begins in 1989, when the dismembered bodies of Anna Maria Phelps and Daniel Lauer are found near an Interstate rest stop east of Richmond.
Their murders are still unsolved.
Enter celebrity novelist Patricia Cornwell, who admits her 1992 best seller "All That Remains" was partially based on the Phelps and Lauer murders.
Cornwell, after all, worked in the Virginia Medical Examiner's Office.
sot 15:04:36

((MARGIE LAUER/VICTIM'S MOTHER: MY FIRST REACTION I GUESS WAS WELL NOW THAT MURDERER KNOWS THAT EVERYBODY KNOWS AND HE SAYS WELL I'M FREE, I'M SCOT FREE. BECAUSE HOW ARE THEY GOING TO SOLVE THE CASE? I MEAN IT'S PUBLIC INFORMATION NOW.))

RUNS=:11


So the families filed a civil suit against Cornwell last year.
Now they've persuaded 15 lawmakers from both parties to sponsor a resolution that would study how to better protect autopsy records from unauthorized public disclosure.
So what about the Governor -- whose biggest individual contributor's reputation could be on the line with a bill that specifically mentions the "tragic" impact of "crime novels?"

But Gilmore's health commissioner will speak for the administration against the bill-- and HE clearly links it to Cornwell's lawsuit.

((DR. RANDY GORDON/VA. HEALTH COMMISSIONER: OUR CONCERN IS THAT THIS RESOLUTION THAT ESTABLISHES A STUDY ADMITS OR ASSERTS THAT THE CHIEF MEDICAL EXAMINER'S OFFICE HAS RELEASED INFORMATION THAT IT SHOULD NOT HAVE RELEASED. AND WE MAINTAIN THAT THAT IS NOT THE CASE.))

Pennington was convicted in April of 1995 of murdering Bonnie Sue Mullins and was sentenced to 42 years in jail.
But Defense lawyers later found evidence they said proved Pennington's innocence and the first trial was thrown out.
