Scotland grad pens book about ‘Chasing Cosby’
LAURINBURG — A former resident of Laurinburg has penned a book about Bill Cosby and her 13 year long work has inside details on the victims of his abuse.Nicki Weisensee Egan released her book, “Chasing Cosby:
The Downfall of America’s Dad,” on Tuesday where the author shares interviews with many of Cosby’s accusers.“Cosby is such a universal figure and if you want to understand how he went from being ‘America’s dad’ to imprisoned for drugging a sexually assaulting a woman, you should read the book,” said Egan. “It’s a big picture of the whole scandal.”According to her website, the award-winning journalist and former People magazine senior writer first dug into the story when Andrea Constand went to the police in 2005.
Egan continued to heavily investigate the case when others looked away. She gained ties with firm sources and discovered incriminating details that ultimately influenced the prosecution.
