102 - The Deadly Dr. Hyde

In 1910, Dr. B.C. Hyde was put on trial for the murder of Colonel Thomas Swope, a wealthy Kansas City landowner the year before. Also included in the charges were manslaughter and several counts of attempted murder. This is a case I've gone back and forth on several times.

In the passage describing the attack on Wright Horton, the name of the sheriff's son is incorrectly given as Jules. His name was actually Julius, and I've corrected it to such.

99 - The Bowery Slasher

 

In the winter of 1891-1892, a series of slashing attacks - and one murder - took place in the rough streets of the Bowery in Lower Manhattan, barely a stone's throw from the seedy hotel where “Old Shakespeare” was slain only a few months before.

In 1920s Los Angeles, the mother-daughter duo of May Otis Blackburn and Ruth Wieland ran a female-dominated religious cult. The Blackburn Cult, as it was called in the newspapers of the time, came to the attention of the LAPD after a fraud investigation. But following the clues soon led to revelations of far worse offenses than simple fraud.

The White Star Line lost many ships over the years, most famously the Titanic in 1912.  But over its century of existence, it had only one ship vanish without a trace.  Did it sink in a storm?  Explode due to its volatile cargo?  This is the story of the Naronic.
