What does the Southern Pacific Railroad have to do with a series of ax murders? How did the woman who went ’round the world in less than 80 days find herself in a cell with a murderer? Do you know about the union boss who killed over 100 men?
Meticulously researched page-turners. We culled through hundreds of true crime accounts and thousands of newspaper articles to choose these strange stories. And came across photos that haven’t seen the light of day in decades.
Months of pouring through newspaper archives. A detail in one article would often lead to weeks of chasing down the full story. And often we would get lost in peculiar side stories – the fate of a prosecutor, future of a witness, or strange coincidence of history or an image we can’t believe exists. We’re looking forward to sharing some of these digressions with you on this blog, via email, and through social media. Happy reading!
