Murders, Mysteries, and Mayhem

Who doesn’t love a good murder mystery? Our committee has researched several stories of murder and mayhem from over 100 years ago such as a bludgeoning, stabbings, love-gone-wrong, robbery, jail breaks, horse thievery and some good old Jesse James legends. By focusing on some of the more unsavory, yet titillating, side of our county history, we will be able to also honor the brave men and women who helped to solve the mysteries involved. Our original plan was to present a community program to highlight some of these titillating stories, but because of the current pandemic now propose to offer one or more stories in county newspapers and social media each week for several months, running from the first of September through the end of 2020.
