AN EYE FOR AN EYE --
A special edition of Yesterday’s News exploring the criminal justice system at its most extreme: Inflicting the Death Penalty...
A Foul Deed In Ft. Thomas
In celebration of our 200th episode, I’m going to share one of my favorite local stories. The murder itself took place a state over, but one of the convicted murderers lived for a time in my hometown, and the sad story of Pearl Bryan is well-known in the three states involved, with many dubious legends and rumors abounding, and it’s said that her spirit haunts a Northern Kentucky nightclub. But what I really like about this story is that it has one of the most remarkable descriptions of an execution that I’ve come across. Enjoy.
