YESTERDAY’S NEWS --
Tales of classic scandals, scoundrels and scourges told from historic newspapers in the golden age of yellow journalism...
The Tribulation Of Meda Dudgeon Hodell
Episode 229 is a rich tale from the swamplands of Michigan, an ever-changing story that includes a faked suicide, a pair of murders, an attempted double lynching, confessions out the wazoo, as well as charges of police corruption and coercion, even a couple of ghost stories, all centered on a simple 20-year-old country girl, the bride of a much older man. Yeah, it’s that kind of country.
Culled from the historic pages of the Detroit Free Press and other newspapers of the era.
