UNSOLVED: A special edition of Yesterday’s News exploring one of history’s most baffling murder mysteries.Who Killed Lettie Whitehall?
Episode 282 is dedicated to True Crime Historian patron Vivia Boe, who requested an episode from her hometown, Bothell, Washington. In scouring the archives, I found this tragic story that takes place in the vicinity. It’s usually hard to get a full episode from an unsolved case as there’s usually no resolution and a good story needs an ending. This one has a lot of middle, to be sure, as law enforcement thrashes around and blames every man in town for the poor girl’s death. They finally charge a guy, but the evidence is thin. One clue still bugs me, tho. How do you explain the missing tooth?
