by (Author)

  • 10,866 Words

Early one winter morning in 1903, Sam Keelor of Hamilton, Ohio, awoke with a cooper's hammer in his hand dripping blood and his pretty young wife Bertha dead in their marriage bed next to him. When getting rid of the body proved more work than he bargained for, he decided the only noble thing to do was to take his own life, so with a sharp razor, he slit his own throat. Before he could bleed out, however, his family discovered the bloody, bloody scene, and rescued the beleaguered coal man. This "novelette" length true crime story details the family quarrel that led to the mess and the delivery of turn-of-the-century justice.
